28 Mar A tough nut to crack
As the macadamia industry began to boom through the late 1980s, Robert Eggins began tailoring his 20-year established business towards the macadamia industry. Today, there are over 240 Robmac harvesters running on Australian plantations.
“The team runs a production pipeline with three or six harvesters in the works at any given time,” says Robert’s son, David. “We build an average of twelve to fifteen units per year and offer ongoing support for all our customers.”
“We buy our parts and components from Motion Australia because they are very time efficient,” he further explains, “Our local rep, Gary Livotto at BSC Lismore, has been coming to our workshop for fifteen years or so. He is interested in the machines and how they work and has provided expert consult on selecting premium parts and components for them from the earliest days of our business.”
