Introduction to the Company
Founded in 1869, Robinson Brothers Ltd is today one of the UK's largest independent manufacturers of speciality organic chemicals. We offer a wide range of custom manufactured intermediates on a commercial scale from kilograms to multi-tonnes, all produced to the highest possible quality and environmental standards.
Our success is based on providing a value-added service by adopting a customer-orientated approach - interfacing through multi-functional teams that mirror those of our customers. Our corporate independence allows us to respond speedily to all enquiries, gives us a greater flexibility, enables us to invest ahead of time in people, plant and processes and, above all, guarantees total confidentiality to our customers.
We are committed to seeking innovative solutions to products and processes and have a proven track record for delivering right first time and on time. This has enabled us to win in global markets as diverse as pharmaceuticals, veterinary, agricultural, photographic, cosmetic, electronic and polymer chemicals and the supply of intermediates for the food and beverage industry.
Our technology is built upon a long established expertise in catalytic hydrogenation and organo-sulphur chemistry. However, Robinson Brothers Ltd today has an extensive range of sophisticated chemistries. We handle challenging reagents such as carbon disulphide, chlorosulphonic acid, phosgene, bromine, hydroxylamine and dimethyl sulphate. In addition our unit process portfolio includes Diels Alder and Freidel Crafts reactions, vacuum distillation and cyclisations to give a range of heterocyclic molecules.
Recent investments in our R&D department have helped us to focus on the development of new products and processes, in turn helping our customers bring their new and innovative ideas to market. Our Kilo-Lab and Pilot Plant facilities allow a seamless progression from kilograms through to tonne manufacture. External work with Academe, either singly or through industrial consortia, focuses on new processes, process intensification, new technology and cleaner chemistry. We are also actively developing sustainable products in the fields of biodegradation and polymer chemicals.
