Our mission

We develop 3D concrete printing solutions that are:

  • robust and efficient to implement

  • strongly improve working conditions at construction sites

  • reduce dramatically the CO2 footprint of the construction industry

Our values

We are driven by passion, excellence and high ethical standards . We embrace challenges as opportunities to learn and to excel.

We are bold!

Our team

6 different nationalities, strong acumen and unified skills in one team

We are a team of passionate experts in the fields of robotics, mechanical engineering, automation, mechatronics and aerodynamic of sprayed concrete. Every challenge is an opportunity to learn and help us achieve excellence.

 

Our drive and aim are to shape the construction industry of tomorrow's world and make this sector more efficient and sustainable.

Our team comprises six nationalities. We speak french, english, german, spanish, arabic, vietnamese, italian, romanian and polish. We don't ask you to speak french to join our team.

Agnes Petit

Founder and CEO

Agnes holds a doctorate in cosmochemistry from the ETHZ. She began her professional career working for the leader of building materials. There she acquired the technical basis for concrete materials and was trained for innovation deployment strategies for the construction sector. She then gained operational experience by leading the business development and innovation of the swiss precast leader. After working as an intrapreneur and developing a first 3D concrete printing system, she launched her own start-up and challenge the status quo of the 3D concrete printing.

Helmi Belkamel

Workshop and concrete production

Kamel has worked as a logistician on boats for many years and has more than 7 years of practical experience in the construction sector.  He has had numerous positions in the primary and secondary construction industry on construction sites. He is at ease with a trowel, a soldering iron and also a saw - so he is our "McGyver" and assists in the production of concrete.

Filip Furdui

Mechanical Engineer

After a Bachelor's degree in mechanical and industrial process equipment in Romania, Filip held different positions where he gathered experience in mechanical design and modelling, robotic simulations for various robot type and prototyping.
At MOBBOT, he's in charge of the mechanical design and prototyping of subsystems. Positivity is his mantra.

Arash Askari

Data Science Engineer

After his PhD in structural engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology in Iran, Arash joined the EESD-EPFL lab as a guest researcher. He was responsible for development of the GUI for modeling, analyzing, post processing and the visualization of masonry buildings.

Thanks to his outstanding skills in programming, Arash analyzes all data of the "Sprinting" sessions in order to improve the data processing.

Marc Fragnière

Automation technician

Marc worked in the maintenance, manufacturing and commissioning of automatized systems for the food, pharmaceutical and industrial sectors.

He joined Mobbot to share his knowledge and experience on a smaller scale. Thus, he can manage the globality of a system and has a transversal role. He is the interface between the practical and the technical aspects of our technology. His unbridled motivation has led him to produce the concrete batches for us!

Vincent Bourquin

Prof. Dr. Mechanical Engineer HEIA-FR

InnoSuisse Project

Co-head of the branch Sustainable engineering systems institute. Vincent is specialised in technology integration and in the development of systems. He has developed innovation development plans in order to comply with sustainability criteria and has a high level of competence in mechanical engineering innovation and aerodynamics.

Thomas Ribeaud

CTO and mechanical engineer

Thomas has a Master's degree in mechanical engineering from INSA, Lyon. He has worked as a mechanical and automation designer in several start-ups and high-level scientific projects. For two years, Thomas was a mechanical and maintenance manager on a base in the Arctic. In his free time, he develops CNC in his garage.
He manages MOBBOT's technical development aspects, comprising the automation of MOBBOT's 3D printing system, its mechanics and robotics.

Mélanie Lai

Design and robotic fabrication project manager

CHO - Chief Happiness Officer

After a Bachelor's degree in architecture at EPFL, Melanie completed several internships on sustainable development projects. She then obtained her Master's degree in architecture at the ETHZ and acquired basic skills in digital fabrication. Mélanie is in charge of the parametric design of elements for customers,  development of new robot strategies and production of concrete elements.  She's the guardian of our well-being and "sharing is caring" event organiser.

Aurélie Favier

Ecological construction specialist

Aurélie made a PhD in Materials Chemistry at the University Paris Est. She was then interested to use her knowledge to improve the properties of ecological construction materials at EPFL. With a good background in this field, she now shares with us her experience. She is in charge of the concrete quality, the analysis of the ecological impact of this material and the development of new concrete formulations.

Florence Aubry

Administrative assistant

Thanks to a her career in banking, Florence has an extended knowledge in finance. She is in charge of administrative aspects at Mobbot.

This is a return to the roots after having worked in various European markets. Florence is a Fribourg native and has a deep interest in the Swiss economic system especially in start-ups.

Nathanaël Villard

Foreman, responsible for production

After graduating as a mason (CFC diploma), Nathanaël chose to incorporate the swiss army. He was promoted as Chief master sergeant. His experience in the army has taught him rigour and disciple which he applied to this work. He progressively obtained more responsibilities first as team leader for special works (such as sprayed concrete), then foreman and finally project manager.

Passionate about new technologies and expert with the trowel, there is no doubt why he is part of the team!

 

Benjamin Galé

Scientific assistant HEIA-FR

InnoSuisse Project

After a CFC in mechanics and a brief spell in civil engineering at EPFL, Benjamin has found his vocation in mechanical engineering. He holds a Master's degree in mechanical engineering from HEIA-Fribourg. He worked with MOBBOT for his term paper and also for his Master thesis. He is currently developing models and simulations in the deposition process of MOBBOT in an aR&D project supported by InnoSuisse at HEIA-FR.
