Global TBM Company, newly established by industry veteran Lok Home, is proud to announce the recent purchase of substantially all the assets of Robbins. The company will operate as Robbins and with Mr. Home as the President and Chief Executive Officer.

The acquisition will result in a seamless transition for a number of ongoing projects throughout the world, as Robbins renews its commitment to service, quality underground equipment, and top-notch support that its customers have come to expect.

Home said the company has a bright future as a result of the transaction. “We are starting off the new year with a respectable backlog of orders,” he noted. “In 2021 and beyond, our clients can depend on Robbins to deliver high quality machines, and technically superior machines for very difficult projects,” said Home. “That’s where Robbins really stands out.”

Home went on to say that Robbins is starting 2021 with no significant bank or institutional debt. “We have many projects to look forward to,” he continued. “Robbins is currently delivering crossover machines and tunnel boring machines equipped for challenging geological conditions in many countries including the US, Norway, India, China and Canada.” The company’s conveyor and small boring machine divisions will also continue to deliver equipment worldwide.

“We still have our strong engineering team and we plan to continue our many industry involvements including the International Tunneling Association (ITA) and its associate member organisations. We’re glad to be a part of this community and this industry,” Home added.

The company expects to continue with exciting new developments as well, including a soon-to-be-unveiled non-circular rock boring machine. Robbins remains focused on creativity and innovation to solve the industry’s greatest challenges.
