Building on our Foundation
It’s been 75 years since Robins Engineering began its journey, building in its home city of Birmingham, Alabama. Today, the company — now known as Robins & Morton — has more than 150 ongoing projects, spanning 38 states.
In celebrating how far we’ve come, we respect the path we’ve traveled. We couldn’t have reached this milestone without the lessons learned, the wisdom of those came before us and their commitment to quality and integrity to guide us.
In 2021, we continue building on that foundation.
Looking to the Future
As we mark this moment in our history, we decided to modernize another aspect of our business: our logo. Since its founding, Robins & Morton has been recognized in the marketplace by its iconic red rectangle, emblazoned with Robins Engineering and later with Robins & Morton. In keeping with the intention to build on our foundation, we simply updated our classic logo.
Telling Our Stories
There is so much more to our history than what appears on the surface. To better capture the whole of who we are, we dig deeper into the moments, people and places where we’ve been, discovering ties to our character today.
