Robotics specialist partners up to target waste and recycling sector
17 October 2023
ZenRobotics has appointed a new distributor for Norway, naming Tandberg Engineering as its official dealer for the country with immediate effect.
Tandberg Engineering, a technology specialist with “extensive experience” of working with robotic systems, will offer ZenRobotics’ robotic products to the Norwegian waste and recycling industry, along with sales, service, and parts support.
Rainer Rehn, Regional Sales Manager of ZenRobotics, said: “We have enjoyed a strong and ongoing relationship with Tandberg Engineering, which is evidenced by numerous signed orders and successful deliveries.
“Tandberg’s exceptional professionalism has left a lasting impression on us. Their ability to offer comprehensive turnkey solutions tailored for the Norwegian market positions them as an excellent partner for our future customers as well. We are excited to further enhance our relationship with Tandberg.”
Prior to its new distribution deal, Tandberg Engineering previously represented ZenRobotics at this year’s Waste Norway Annual Conference (Avfall Norge - Arskonfersansen), at which it showcased a ZenRobotics Fast Picker and was nominated for the event’s official ‘exhibition award’.
Tandberg Engineering also recently signed an agreement with both ZenRobotics and Bjorstaddalen that will see the companies establish a “fully robotised, efficient, and cost-effective Material Recovery Facility (MRF) at Bjorstaddalen’s plant in Norway”.
Jorn Tandberg, the CEO of Tandberg Engineering, said: “It has been both exciting and rewarding to work with ZenRobotics and their robots.
“ZenRobotics’ recycling robots are capable of sorting materials with precision and speed, significantly improving the efficiency of recycling facilities. They also reduce contamination and increase the quality of recycled materials.
“This means more material can be processed and given a new life, reducing waste, conserving valuable resources and overall reduce our carbon footprint and lessen the strain on our environment.
“We already have several prospects in Norway, where we believe the increase of robots will continue rapidly.”
Jorn added: “Our projects have also received a lot of international attention, which has also been encouraging. As we look ahead, it is evident that recycling robots are at the forefront of a more sustainable future. Their contributions to waste reduction, resource conservation, and a cleaner environment are nothing short of remarkable. We are pleased to be a part of this revolution.”
