About the Customer:
Robinson Transport are based in Weisdale on the west of Shetland. The company can trace its origins back to 1930 when Jackie Robinson and Davie Morrison started a general merchant store. As well as running the shop, Robinson and Morrison also did some private vehicle hire in the local area. With the unfortunate passing of Davie Morrison in 1945, Jackie was joined in the business by his wife Mimie. In 1948 they were awarded the local school contract which is still operated today. During the 1950s their elder sons Melvyn and Ian joined the business which continued to grow, benefitting especially during the 1970s with the advent of the Shetland oil boom. When Jackie passed away in 1985, Melvyn and Ian were joined in the business by their younger brother Graham. During the next 18 years the hiring side of the business increased and in 2004 Graham took this over, renaming it Robinson Transport. Today the fleet consists of vehicles from 4 – 43 seaters used on a variety of work including school contracts, private hire, stage carriage and incoming tours. Graham Robinson and his team were very happy with their new Elegance, quoting EVM’s competitive pricing for a quality build on time as his reasons for choosing EVM.
