A Trip Down Memory Lane

In 1949, lifetime friends Owen Robinson and Bob Phelps worked for the stock firm Elder Smith & Co. Ltd. At the start of WWII, both enlisted in the army. Bob, a captain in the 2/4 machine gun battalion, was captured during the fall of Singapore to the Japanese.

MRP's Logo for Pest ProtectionDuring Bob’s imprisonment in Changi, he met Aubrey Maxwell, who at that time previously had a pest control firm in Singapore. Aubrey and Bob made a pact that should they both survive the war, they meet up in Western Australia and set up a business. And it was at that moment the vision of Maxwell Robinson & Phelps was born. Both survived the horrors of war and imprisonment to embrace their new lives.

Aubrey arrived in Perth, Western Australia in 1949 and partnered up with Owen and Bob to set up Maxwell, Robinson & Phelps. The company flourished and in 2006, the company was purchased by Ray and Michelle Franklin. They have continued the legacy and ensured that MRP remains as one of the leading Pest and Weed Management companies in Western Australia. It really is a testament to a culture of superior service and a genuine need to help others that the company has gone from strength to strength over close to 7 decades.

Through their pest control services, they can prevent the spread of diseases and illness carried by house pests such as rodents, cockroaches and fleas, making your home a clean and safe place to live in. The service also caters for health and safety needs in the workplace.
