Michael Robson

DROPPING in at Mood Food the other day, we were happy to catch up with Michael Robson from Burnie when he rolled in driving a Robson Transport 2005 FM 460 Volvo and on his way home from Hobart.

He was enjoying the break, a bite to eat and the beautiful weather at the time, a change from the endless heat we have been having of late.

Michael tells us it is a family business, and though he had completed an apprenticeship as a reinforced plastic and fibre glasser, he had the diesel already in the blood and came straight back to driving full-time.

"And loving it", he told us. "This is the way of happiness, doing what you want and enjoying it."

He tells us the company tow general freight statewide so it is a varied job and one he enjoys, and that he really likes the comfort and economy of the Volvo.
