Forestry, a family tradition
Robinson was founded in 2002 by brothers Ross and Scott Robinson, both having a good knowledge in forestry equipment. The company was at that time established to distribute forest machinery and equipment. They distributed various brands and over the years they managed to add many important agencies to their portfolio. Since there was an apparent need for a timber trailer to meet the needs of hauliers on the Irish market, the Robinson brothers produced their first trailer in 2004, following their father, Alan Robinson, who had already produced his first timber trailer in 1980. Following the continuous development of a wide variety of trailer models, Robinson took up a new challenge. After supplying cranes for more than 20 years, Robinson decided in 2012 to start manufacturing timber cranes. In 2016, the first Robinson crane was born - designed for professional use, combining the latest advances in crane technology, components and manufacturing materials. Robinson has become a market leading crane and trailer manufacturer, supplying an ever growing customer base across Ireland, the UK and main land Europe.
The Robinson brothers took a large step in 2004 by producing their first trailer. Substantial investment in both research and equipment was needed, but they were confident since there was family knowledge and history in this field as their father, Alan Robinson, had already produced his first timber trailer in 1980.
The Robinson trailers were soon very well accepted by the market, leading to the ongoing development of a wide variety of new trailer models, as they are requested by end users. They also manufacture once-off trailers to meet specific end user’s needs.
