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, and realising we still paint things the same way since paint was invented, we set on our mission to help painting avoid certain misfortune, by bringing technology into the industry.

Then There Was a Team

Fast-Forward to today, the Wall Painting Robot 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.
