Our Mission:

We believe in pushing the envelope. Everything we do is focussed on creating the new

700

Of those workers will lose their lives

+£1Bn

The cost of insurance claims and productivity loss of those falls

In the Beginning

This is where it all started, in the garage! School friends and our founders, Harry and Jack, began the journey by making the first two prototypes in Harrys parents garage.

After learning about those statistics above, we set on our mission to help reduce the danger in protecting and maintaining the built environment.

Then There Was a Team

Fast-Forward to today, the HausBots team is based in Birmingham, in our own office, testing and trialling our robotics.

With the help of our fantastic team, and after gaining equity investment, HausBots LTD has flourished.
