Martin and Robson was founded by Frank Martin in 1934, joining the Sturrock and Robson Group in 1948.
To bring us closer to customers in the main South African coal mining areas, we relocated to our current South African home of Broodsnyersplaas, Mpumalanga.
With increasing demand from customers in Australia, we decided to set-up base at a mill in the strategic harbour town of Mackay.
In collaboration with the coal industry, an investment was made in a milling plant to ensure security of supply of magnetite.
The mill has enabled us to consistently produce whichever grade is required by our customers, and mitigate against disruptions to supply even through crises.
To support our Australian operations, we opened an office in sunny Brisbane.
We want to be close and available to our customers when they need us. With more and more shipments going to Europe, we therefore decided to establish a base in the UK in early 2019.
