The business first started in 1914 under the name of Wood, Robinson & Collins, trading from premises off Trafford Road, Salford. The original partnership lasted only a few months before being dissolved and George Ernest Robinson formed a new business in the name of GE Robinson & Company with himself as the sole proprietor.
In 1918 the business moved to its present site where expansion began to take place and a new Sawmill and Office Block were erected. In 1935 the business was incorporated as a Limited Liability Company.
In 2006 the company was bought by Haldane Shiells & Co Ltd based in Northern Ireland. They trade under the name of Haldane Fisher.
