We would like to introduce Birmingham based manufacture Illston and Robson to Made in the Midlands. Welcome to the Made in Family!

Made in members Illston and Robson is Europe's leading manufacturer of couplings for the air brake lines on commercial and agricultural vehicles.  The company has long been associated with the highest quality linkage components, maintaining this status with recent investments in CNC equipment and a dedicated assembly area. Illston and Robson are dedicated to working in partnership with its customers to develop new products. This includes the IC range of inline, low-end ball joints. As the company exports their goods globally, they have been accredited with an "Approved Exporter Status". 

Claire Reid, a senior member of staff at Illston and Robson, is excited about being part of the Made in group and has said: 

" We joined Made in the Midlands to expand our customer base and network, we wanted to be a part of a network of experts we can call on. we have already benefited from the microsite by looking for suppliers". 

The Made in Group was created to challenge the erosion of British manufacturing and to open a channel of communication between local firms.  We are proud to have industry leaders Illston and Robson as a Made in the Midlands member.
