Invert Robotics Relocates HQ to Dublin

Christchurch-founded Invert Robotics, a company that develops inspection robots, is relocating its headquarters to Dublin after recently raising €3.5 million from backers that include State-backed Finistere Ventures, Charlie Taylor reports for The Irish Times.

Invert Robotics, which spun out from the University of Canterbury’s School of Engineering in 2010, has selected Dublin as its new home as its gears up for further growth in Europe and North America.

Invert has developed climbing robots that that can cling to non-metallic surfaces, allowing organisations to inspect and maintain equipment located in hazardous, hard-to-reach or toxic environments.

“We’ve found Ireland’s business environment to be highly supportive of fast-scaling businesses like ours, and we very much look forward to tapping into the local talent pool as we build out our technical capabilities,” managing director of Invert Robotics Neil Fletcher said.
