About COBOD International
Our mission is to disrupt the global construction industry through world class 3D automation. Faster. Better. Cheaper. We 3D printed Europes first building in 2017. Subsequently the first 2- and 3-story buildings in Belgium and Germany were made with our technology. Also, the first villa in Dubai and the first buildings in Africa have been printed by our 3D construction printers, like the first wind turbine bases. We have an open-source strategy, partnering with customers, academic institutions, and suppliers around the world. Our partners include GE (US), PERI (Germany), Cemex (Mexico), and Holcim (Switzerland). Our vision is to see 3D printed and automatically constructed buildings in every city around the world. Our HQ in Denmark has 80+ highly competent pioneers from 20 nationalities and truly global presence in Asia, Middle East, Africa, Europe, US, Latin, and South America.
