Robit is a strongly internationalized growth company manufacturing, selling and servicing global customers in drilling consumables for applications in mining, construction and contracting, tunneling and well drilling. Robit has the widest ranging offering in the drilling consumables segment. The company’s business is divided into three Strategic Business Units: Top Hammer, Down the Hole and Digital Services.
The foundation of the Robit story is strong and determined internationalization. The acquisitions, Drilling Tools Australia Pty Ltd and Bulroc (UK) Ltd, made in summer 2016 strengthened significantly Robit’s international operations. In addition, Robit purchased manufacturing assets and IPRs from Halco International LLC and Halco America LLC in January 2017 as well as further finalized the Halco acquisition in February 2017 by purchasing a majority of Halco Brighouse Ltd’s shares in England. As a result of the Halco acquisition Robit has further strengthened its Down-the-Hole business as a complement to the acquisitions made in Australia and England in May-July 2016. Robit emphasizes that it is a global company specializing in selling drilling consumables via its comprehensive distribution network in the global market.
After the acquisitions, Robit’s manufacturing sites are located in Finland, South Korea, Australia, UK and USA. The company’s own sales and service points serve customers in Lempäälä, Moscow, Kerava, Seoul, Donghae, Hangzhou, Chicago, Johannesburg, Lima, Sao Paolo, Bangkok, Chesterfield, Hong Kong, Windhoek, Dubai, Brighouse, Sherman as well as in Ust-Kamenogorsk.
