Supporting our Northland ITM Rugby team

Robinson Asphalts are proudly local - supporting the Northland community consistently over the years since 1972.

Robinson Asphalts are longstanding sponsors of Sport Northland – we believe this is the best way to support a broad range of sports, teams and individuals throughout Northland.

We have also been regular sponsors of the Allens Kids Triathlon – now the Ray White Allens Kids Triathlon. Not only do we support this wonderful event financially but members of our team go along on the day and help with anything from marshalling and organising the kids to find their bikes, to encouraging them to finish and helping organisers with the clean-up afterwards.

Robinsons also had 6 teams in the Ray White Allens Amazing Race – organised by Gary Younger of Ray White Allens, to raise funds for the Cancer Society Relay for Life. This was loads of fun – with anything from changing a tyre to sack races and cryptic puzzles. There was plenty of competition between the teams. As always Robinson Asphalts teams took a collaborative approach – helping each other out along the way. Check out the photos!

Robinson Asphalts has supported Project Promise by sponsoring movie premieres in Whangarei and purchasing a brick in their wall. This has been a very important fundraiser to meet the target of building Northland’s very own Oncology Unit here in Whangarei. Show your support – click here to find out more…

The emphasis at Robinson Asphalts is very much on quality They believe in doing the job once and doing it right. Their client base ranges from residential and commercial property owners to schools, hospitals, Councils and builders. Robinsons have built long-lasting relationships with many of their valuable clients in Northland and aim to be the contractor of choice.
