Late 2016 new owners acquired a majority of the shares in existing robotics companies RobotNorge AS in Norway and RobNor AB in Sweden. Trolltunga Robotics AS was established in order to hold the shares for new and existing owners and to become the parent company of RobotNorge AS and RobNor AB. After the transaction RobotNorge AS and RobNor AB are wholly owned subsidiaries of Trolltunga Robotics AS. The main owners of Trolltunga Robotics AS are PRE Robot Holding AS, owned by a group of investors mainly based in the southwestern parts of Norway, and Kotech AS, owned by Kjell Oppedal, the founder of RobotNorge AS and RobNor AB.
– Trolltunga Robotics AS serves as a vehicle for further growth of RobotNorge AS and RobNor AB and for development of new business within applied robotics and automation, says Atle Rettedal, Executive Chairman of Trolltunga Robotics AS.
The market for applied robotics and automation is growing in the Nordic countries.
