Trackunit and ZTR come together to connect construction

HG Capital

LONDON, ON, MINNEAPOLIS, MN and AALBORG, DK – September 15, 2021 – Trackunit and the Industrial IoT division of ZTR are uniting to better serve the growing demands of the construction industry. Putting customer needs first, the two telematics leaders are combining their considerable resources to accelerate innovation and drive digital transformation — with collaboration and service at the centre of their strategy.

“We see the industry at a pivotal tipping point when it comes to digitalization of their business and equipment – and customers are looking for a trusted partner.”

Soeren Brogaard, CEO of Trackunit

“By combining ZTR IIoT and Trackunit resources and offerings, we’re better equipped to serve the needs of the customers now and in the future.”

Sam Hassan, President & CEO of ZTR

Strengthening our core focus
As a combined entity, Trackunit and the ZTR IIoT division will extend their core focus to accelerate the digital journey in construction, Hassan continues.

“By coming together with Trackunit, we will be able to operate on a global scale to provide an expanded offering to our customers with greater efficiency and depth,” he says.

“Together, we are strengthening our core focus on enabling the ecosystem of construction. By combining our businesses, we’re elevating our technology and increasing the value customers will be able to extract from their data”, adds Soeren Brogaard.

Over the past few years, the realm of IoT and telematics possibilities has evolved from simple track and trace technology into highly actionable insights that create massive value for the stakeholders of the construction industry.

After the transaction closes the combined entity of Trackunit and ZTR will specialize in creating offerings that enhance utilization, increase fleet availability, improve safety and reduce equipment loss as major value drivers. In addition, both companies will help customers in collecting data and translating it into actionable insights – enabling customers to build smarter and more resilient machines. Furthermore, the combined entity is dedicated to helping improve daily operations for customers with increased operator safety, machine health and business optimizations.

“Our promise to the industry is based on collaboration. With a purpose as determined and noble as eliminating downtime, we know that working with our customers to apply new digital tools, is absolutely necessary. We make ourselves useful and strive to solve real problems, building everything for scale, while showing compassion for our customers, partners, competitors, and the industry at large”, says Soeren Brogaard.

Best of both worlds
At their cores, both Trackunit and ZTR are in business to build solutions that propel the construction industry forward. Trackunit recently attracted a strategic investment from Hg, a leading global software and services investor, to accelerate the company expansion, while ZTR has been transforming its business, and predicts growth through rising demand. Both Trackunit and ZTR have recently taken their first steps into, and secured traction in, the APAC region. Both businesses are ready to start the next chapter – one company focused on uniting the industry and shape it to become the most useful industry for the world. In essence, the timing couldn’t be better.

“We’re focused on delivering our existing customer commitments and creating a smooth integration. This is all about bringing people, competence, and great technology together to create a bigger impact”, says Soeren Brogaard.

A shift in the market
The construction industry is growing rapidly. It is experiencing accelerated investment in IoT capabilities with construction now one of the top five industries for investment growth. As a result, data proliferation is expected to grow exponentially as penetration of connected equipment continues beyond 2025 and machine-level data grows. Given these developments, Trackunit and ZTR IIoT are teaming up to better help their customers meet the changes that come with increasing digitalization of the construction industry.

“ZTR and Trackunit together represent an incredible next step that will enable us to become a truly global player to better serve our customers. I’m excited to roll up my sleeves and take an active part in the executive team. I look forward to venturing out on this shared mission – one in which I have no doubt Soeren Brogaard will capably lead”, says Sam Hassan.

HENT signs major agreement with Statsbygg for construction of part of new Norwegian government district

The construction company HENT, 73% of which is owned by Ratos, has signed an agreement with the Norwegian government’s building commissioner, property manager and developer Statsbygg concerning the construction of A-block, part of the new government district in Oslo. HENT already has an agreement in place for D-block.

Construction of the new government district in Oslo started in January of this year, and construction of A-block is scheduled to commence in 2023. It is a major project for HENT and, like D-block, will be carried out as a so-called partnering contract.

“I am very proud that HENT has once again been entrusted to contribute to such a central part of Norway’s infrastructure as the government district. It is also gratifying to see that HENT’s focus on partnering is yielding results and, so far, A-block and D-block are the crowning jewels for HENT in Norway when it comes to this type of collaborative project,” says Christian Johansson Gebauer, Chairman of the Board of HENT and Head of Business Area at Ratos.

The building will cover a total of 17,300 square metres across 11 storeys, featuring a distinct exterior that will provide a sense of cohesion with the entire district. The new government district in Oslo is expected to be fully completed in 2029.

“In addition to being an important project in its own right, this project will continue to strengthen HENT’s backlog of orders, where public-sector customers are playing an increasingly important role,” Christian Johansson Gebauer continues.
