    How MRP Came to Tame the Pest Control Problem in Perth

    Maxwell Robinson & Phelps (MRP) was founded in 1949 by Aubrey Maxwell, Owen Robinson & Bob Phelps. Owen Robinson and Bob Phelps were lifetime friends and prior to World War II, had worked for the stock firm Elder Smith & Co. Ltd. At the start of WW2 both enlisted in the army, Bob Phelps, a captain in the 2/4 machine gun battalion, was captured at the fall of Singapore by the Japanese.

    During his early internment in Changi prison he met Aubrey Maxwell, who previously had a pest control firm in Singapore, and convinced him, should they both survive the war to come to W.A and set up a business.  They both survived the war, Maxwell in Changi prison and Phelps in Thailand, working on the infamous Burma Road and Railway.

    During 1949 Maxwell arrived in Perth, met Robinson and Phelps and set up the partnership, Maxwell, Robinson and Phelps.

    In 2006 the company was purchased by Ray and Michelle Franklin who have continued to ensure that MRP is one of the leading Pest and Weed Management companies in Western Australia and are committed to providing a professional pest and weed service which practices new and environmentally friendly chemicals responsibly with the highest level of specialised service to all our customers.
