FBR Limited, a prominent robotic technology firm, has announced plans to expedite the delivery of its construction robots to the U.S. market in response to rising demand. The move underscores the company's strategic emphasis on expanding its footprint in the United States.
Originally, FBR's second next-generation Hadrian X robot, which is currently in production, was set to be equipped with an Australian certified truck chassis. However, given the burgeoning demand in the U.S., the company has decided to fit the robot onto a U.S. certified truck chassis. This adjustment is set to occur as soon as the company receives the first of its three ordered chassis, paving the way for commercial operations to commence swiftly in the U.S. Once operational, the robot will be integrated into FBR’s "Wall as a Service" operating entity located in Florida.
Furthermore, FBR's inaugural next-generation Hadrian X robot, which is presently in the testing and optimization phase, will be shipped to the U.S. for demonstration purposes immediately upon completing its testing cycle.
Hadrian X, is a bricklaying robot that is positioned to build structural walls faster with less wastage than traditional manual methods. "Wall as a Service", FBR’s commercial offering, is being offered to builders on demand.
FBR has also revealed that production for a third Hadrian X robot has begun. The company is in the procurement process for three additional Hadrian X units. When these units are completed, they will be allocated to various "Wall as a Service" entities as part of FBR's global commercial rollout. The firm's international strategy seeks to foster collaborations in pivotal markets, including the United States, Europe, Australia, the GCC region, and the United Kingdom.
