From humble beginnings in 1981, our dedicated and hardworking leaders have combined their life experiences into the brand you see here today. They have built the company organically without compromise and will focus to continue providing high standards of professionalism within the industry and our clients.
In 1981 Hannie and Bob purchased the Heathcote Facility from Hannie’s sister as they believed it was a sound business venture to own and operate their own pet boarding facility. They followed suit with the naming of their business by combining their own names, and created the name Hanrob.
Since its inception, both have been heavily involved in the business, whilst at the same time, Bob has always managed additional independent business ventures. Bob is now a Director of the business, and Hannie still works part time in the gardens and petcare onsite at Heathcote due to their love of pets and the business they created together.
