Built’s automated concrete acquisition

By Andy Brown24 January 2023

Construction autonomy firm Built Robotics has acquired Roin Technologies, the makers of the first automated concrete power trowel.

Concrete is the second-most used substance in the world after water. Roin Technologies automates repetitive and dangerous tasks to unlock productivity and time-savings within the concrete industry.

Roin’s products focuse on structural shotcrete and concrete floor finishing. 

Built says that the acquisition will grow the capabilities of its engineering team and accelerate key technological developments to expand automation beyond construction into new applications and markets.

“Since their founding, Roin’s team has pushed the boundaries of construction autonomy, which has created a unique expertise in our industry,” said Noah Ready-Campbell, founder and CEO of Built Robotics.

“With Roin joining Built, the combined teams will continue developing new autonomous construction applications, and customers can expect to see robotic applications expanding beyond earthmoving.”

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 labour and declining productivity rates, construction costs worldwide have slowed the building of critical infrastructure, clean energy, transportation, and housing projects. Automation is one way for the construction industry to increase productivity.
