Quick update & podcast ep about Rebartek

2020 has been a strange year for all of us. We feel lucky to be doing alright during these challenging times.

In the beginning of the year, Rebartek moved into a new location. We now have our own office as well as a pilot factory space where we prefabricate rebar cages for our local customers. So far we have delivered 12 projects to 4 different local customers from our pilot plant.

Delivering an order for a local customer.

The corona situation in Southern Norway is stable at the moment, and that allows for our full time employees to safely work on site at our factory.

Our focus for the rest of 2020 will be on running several more pilot projects locally as well as preparing some big projects in Norway and Europe for next year. Stay tuned!

To hear more about how we are doing, watch our CEO Max on the podcast Automated Construction with Jarret Gross.
