Halodi Robotics adds strategic investment from its customers Altopack from Italy and StrongPoint from Norway.
Halodi Robotics, an Oslo, Norway-based robotics manufacturer, completed a capital funding round.
Halodi Robotics, founded in 2015 by CEO Bernt Børich, was started by developing a consumer robot that will make the elderly and disabled stay at home longer. In parallel, the company sold robots to research institutions to test them for other purposes.
Halodi is still in prototyping model, as in 2020 it produced only three robots and aims to start building commercial machines at less than $20k per unit.
The investment deal is part of a larger partnership involving common R&D product development of dedicated robots - the agreements with Strongpoint and Altopack are the beginning of a major investment in the grocery market for Halodi Robotics, which has previously concentrated on the healthcare sector.
