At Robinson Brothers, the safety of our workforce, neighbours, and the protection of the environment is paramount. We have invested heavily in a fully-equipped Process Hazard Screening Laboratory with full-time expert staffing. Every stage of a chemical manufacturing process is rigorously screened for any reaction hazards and process safety prior to manufacturing in the Kilo-Laboratory and/or Pilot Plant. Where necessary, processes are reverse-engineered to remove and mitigate any identified process hazards. Click here to find out more.

We have a culture of continuous improvement. Our Process Improvement Groups review processes to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of chemical manufacturing campaigns. This is all part of our approach to providing the highest quality of products for our customers.
