Built Robotics, maker of robotic Exosystem and working in construction autonomy, will acquire Roin Technologies, makers of an automated concrete power trowel. With this acquisition Built Robotics wants to expand automation beyond construction into new applications and markets.
As part of the acquisition, Roin’s CEO, Jim Delaney, will join Built’s engineering team. The technologies underlying Roin’s automated power trowel and shotcrete robot will be integrated into Built’s software and hardware systems, and engineering efforts will be focused on Built’s existing and future product lines.
With shortages in labor and declining productivity rates, construction costs worldwide have slowed the building of critical infrastructure, clean energy, transportation, and housing projects in a time when they are needed most. Roin will join Built in continuing the mission of bringing autonomy to the construction industry and helping to bring modern tools into the hands of skilled workers.
