Company History

A J Robson (Electrical) was founded in 1978 by Sandy Robson. Having served his time with Bell & Robertson in Aberdeen the primary client base A J Robson (Electrical) Ltd was industrial, with customers still existing to this day with the likes of John Fleming.

A small family firm, A J Robson gradually employed additional electricians keeping its roots in the industrial and petro-chemical industry.

A J Robson has always had flexibility, whether its installation, maintenance, repair or design and build of bespoke control packages we keep our engineers versed in all areas of the electrical industry.

In the mid eighties becoming a Limited company it was time to increase our office and workshop space.

Moving premises in 1988, our new location diversified our client base, introducing a range of fish filleting and processing factories. To this day we are still operating a breakdown service for many of these companies (much to the displeasure of our engineers, things never smell the same after a day in the fish processing industry).

In 2000 there was a development that was never expected, Neil Robson joined the company, always having been involved as a part time basis while at school and University it is now full time. This introduction has allowed A J Robson to extend its process and control capabilities to new levels.

With the commercial and domestic markets stepping into automated control systems with their lighting and power we are one of the first in the North East of Scotland to be actively promoting the use of these products in the home. This is further boosted by our being the nominated contractor in the Aberdeen area for Square D (who we have always had strong links with) and its domestic/commercial automation platforms of IHC and LEXCOM.
