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.

Rebartek finishes intensive development period at HAX Shenzhen

Wrapping up in Shenzhen


We’re literally wrapping things up in Shenzhen, China! For the last three months, we’ve been taking our hardware to the next level in the Shenzhen HAX lab. Now the time has come to pack up the robots and head back home. Read on to learn how the experience has been for our employees, and what the HAX team in Shenzhen has to say about Rebartek’s time in their lab.

SOSV invests in Rebartek

In May of this year, investor SOSV came on board the Rebartek train. We felt very fortunate to land such an experienced and supportive investor. The energy in the whole team was buzzing. -There was just one thing… This meant we were going to China!

Rebartek goes to China

While the thought of traveling to the other side of the world with your awesome coworkers is great, we also knew that this would be a huge adjustment. Our investor, SOSV puts their startups through accelerator programs to speed up their development. Our Accelerator program is HAX, which is focused on developing hardware.

HAX is a hardware accelerator program in cooperation with our investor SOSV. HAX recruits teams with hardware prototypes and turns them into functional, sustainable companies.

The HAX program experience 

Arriving in Shenzhen was a dizzying experience, not only due to the obvious jet lag. The HAX program provides its startups with a workspace, a team of engineers and resources in a tech lab bursting with innovation. The rest is up to you and your team. With all the tools, expertise and experience at our disposal, we had to make sure we did our part to get the most out of our limited time in Shenzhen. 

While in their lab, HAX also provided us with connections and strategic support.  We got to know the facilitators of the program, and they got to know us. Program Director at HAX, Ji Ke, had this to say about Rebartek’s time in the lab:

“This startup is very ambitious and capable of making decisive decisions. The hardware prototype planning is lean, and objective focused; entirely compatible with Shenzhen ecosystems.”

When asked what he thinks sets Rebartek apart from others as a contech startup, Ke had this to say: 

“You are straight on laser-focused on a proven market, and this is due to your team’s experience in this field.”


Ji Ke is responsible for driving the content and delivery of the
HAX Seed accelerator program in Shenzhen.

New Rebartek prototype

Our time in Shenzhen at HAX has been vital to our technical development. We are happy to share that we have made progress at a speed that would not have been possible without an accelerator program such as HAX. 

And to round off our talk with Mr. Ji Ke from HAX, we asked for a one-sentence piece of advice for Rebartek in the next 12 months, his answer was clear and concise: 

“Tech team leadership is going to make or break your company.”

We could not agree more with Ke. And that’s why we are making technical development leadership a big priority in the coming months (more on that another time).

Rebartek will be on the Expert Committee in MEERC, representing two fields: digitization and prefabrication.  

The main purpose of the MEERC project is to contribute to the Construction Engineering program at UiA being rooted in the latest research and “best industrial practice”. MEERC does this by researching projects that have been developed together with Nye Veier and the industry, to help ensure that NV fulfills their social mission statement, which is to “build good roads quickly and smartly”.

Rebartek CEO, Max Trommer sees the MEERC project as an excellent opportunity to network and looks forward to being a part of the important conversations in a rapidly developing construction industry.

Seven PhD candidates over three years

MEERC is an important research project established as one of several projects under Nye Veier’s deal with UiA. For the next three years, seven PhD candidates will be working on the project, and increasing the competence in both UiA, the construction business and at Nye veier.

Kjell Olav Johannessen (MEERC project member from UiA) says this about Rebartek’s participation in the project:

-The expert committee consists of people from different companies and organizations. By including Rebartek in the Expert committee, we are bringing on board innovation that rethinks how to solve rebar work in the future. Rebartek is developing provident and competitive processes for prefabrication of rebar for concrete elements.

Rebartek is looking forward to take part in the MEERC, and contributing our knowledge to this important project.
