Conveyor firm in TV debut

Have your say

Staff at a Sheffield conveyor belt company are set for TV stardom.

Darnall-based Geo Robson is to be featured on a Channel 5 series which follows the activities of logistics group Eddie Stobart.

Robson’s has been supplying and installing baggage handling equipment at London Southend Airport, which is operated by Stobart Air and is in the middle of a huge redevelopment programme.

When one of Stobart’s trucks arrived at Robson’s Coleford Road plant to pick up equipment for the airport, it came with a film crew.

And production director Kevin Mannion gave an interview about the firm’s handling equipment.

The documentary will be on television in the New Year.
