It all started in 1991 as a Shell Service Station on Wandal Road, pumping petrol and doing some mechanical repairs, then they started selling tyres. This is where the origins of Robo’s Group started and although there have been many changes after 30 years Robo’s Group is still serving Rockhampton.
Although no longer a petrol station, Robo’s Group has expanded to include 7 businesses with the next being Robos Tyre Works on the corner of Exhibition Drive, where it remains to this day.
After a while the decision was made to demonstrate Robo’s commitment to both selling quality tyres as well as the servicing and repairing of motor vehicles by expanding the vehicle servicing and repair division under the Robo’s Motorworks banner. With the next generation keen to be a part the family business, sons, Andrew and Peter (junior), made these expansions a success. However, the expansion didn’t stop there. In their preference to use only quality parts, Fulcrum Suspension a long-term supplier to Robo’s advised of their plans to open a franchise in Rockhampton and asked if Robo’s would take it on. Robo’s agreed and Robo’s Fulcrum Rockhampton was established in September 2013 and later included Active Gear Rockhampton.
Soon followed Robo’s Battery Plus, CQ Manual Gearbox and Differential and Tom Leyden Tyres in Gracemere enabling Robo’s Group to better service communities like Mount Morgan, Westwood, Bouldercombe, Kabra, Stanwell, Marmor, Bajool, and of course Gracemere and Gogango.
Robo’s Group is proud to be a trusted part of the community and provide jobs locally.
