About Us

M.J. Robbins Construction, Inc. has specialized in insurance restoration for residential homes and commercial real estate in Marion County and surrounding Indiana counties since 1989.

Owner Mel Robbins grew up around contractors. He worked in his family’s lumberyard in Kokomo, Indiana, since age 13, and jumped at the chance to do side jobs for contractors while in high school. Throughout the process, Mel gained extremely valuable knowledge of the construction industry. He attended Ball State University and received his associate’s degree from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis prior to becoming a licensed field agent for the Prudential Insurance Company at age 21.

Two years later, Mel became an insurance adjuster for Indiana Insurance and joined J&S Associates, an insurance restoration company, in 1983. He did construction estimating and sales. Mel then worked for Carpenter Construction Company, when a 1989 hailstorm catapulted him to form his own business, M.J. Robbins Construction, Inc., that same year.

Since 1977, Mel has either worked for or with insurance companies to restore damaged homes and businesses. “I love construction and it’s my nature to fix problems,” he says. He’s always been mechanically inclined. While growing up, Mel methodically dismantled an alarm clock and put it back together only to find his mother upset when she saw the clock in pieces. Mel enjoys analyzing how things come together. He compares it to what he does for his clients, “This is what I do on a regular basis. This is the estimating process.” Mel loves figuring out what happened, what’s damaged, and determining what needs to be fixed before identifying the next steps to make this happen.

Mel’s philosophy in life has served him well. “Do the right thing. It may not always be pleasant, but at the end of the day, it’s still the right thing.”
