Proprietorship Firm Since 1951
The Robbins Company has been engaged in the design and manufacture of tunneling and mining equipment since 1951 when the Company manufactured its first TBM. Since then, Robbins TBMs have bored over 3, 500km of tunnel on more than 700 projects worldwide with machines ranging in size from 1.6m diameter to 11.87m in diameter.
Although Robbins is renowned for their very successful "floating gripper" design and hard-rock open TBMs, Robbins is also a pioneer in hard rock double shield machines. More specifically, 35 Double Shields have been built, for 52 projects totaling 359km of tunnel.
Today, through various acquisitions and mergers, The Robbins Company is the owner of the intellectual property and sole source for the products of the following companies:
The Robbins Company was privately held, founded by James S. Robbins, who was succeeded in 1959 by his son Richard. The Company acquired Moran Engineering in the 1980s. Moran Engineering was a designer and manufacturer of TBM support equipment.
Jarva Inc. Was founded in 1966 by Victor Scaravilli, President of an underground construction company. The company initially produced TBMs for their own use but quickly began to supply equipment to other contractors. Atlas Copco, a Stockholm based multinational manufacturing company, purchased Jarva in 1980. In 1985, Atlas Copco took the decision to move the Company to Sweden.
In 1985, former employees of Jarva founded Boretec. Initially, Boretec specialized in the rebuilding of secondhand Robbins and Jarva TBMs. In recent years, Boretec had also begun to supply new TBMs as well as backup systems and continuous conveyor systems. Also, Boretec was one of the first entrants into the TBM rental business.
