John Robar founded the company as J & T Robar Drilling in 1969. Driven by an unparalleled work ethic, a dedication to customer service, and a passion for foundation drilling, John grew the company from a single machine operation to a renowned specialist business.

As a result of this increased business size and scope, the company then re-branded to John Robar Boring Contractors Pty Ltd, and eventually evolved into a group of companies. The parent company, John Robar Boring Contractors Pty Ltd (John Robar Boring), was founded in 1980. The operating company, Robar Boring, was founded in 1997.
