Bob Martin & Co.
About Bob Martin & Co.
Bob Martin & Co. was founded in 1892 by 25-year-old Robert Martin – and the Martin family, still passionate about animals and their health, owns the company to this day.
Since Bob Martin & Co. was established, our love of animals has guided us to make affordable and high-quality pet healthcare available to all families. This is why many of our products are household names – available online and in stores worldwide.“
Who We Are
At Bob Martin & Co. we don’t only produce our original Bob Martin-branded pet healthcare products; our business is also a ‘house of brands’. Over the years, we’ve added a variety of pet products and brands to our range. Each is used for different reasons by different pet owners… But they all come from our family to yours.
To ensure that every dog could be kept in peak condition, he invented a conditioning powder and distributed it as a nutritional supplement. This led to the creation of a new market sector – pet healthcare – and an iconic public persona for “Bob Martin”.
The Martin family, still crazy about animals and still passionate about pet healthcare, is proud to own the company to this day.
More than 220 pet-lovers dream, innovate, and collaborate in our business, helping us make a difference in the homes of millions of fur-covered families across Southern Africa. Our purpose and our values guide us every step of the way.
