i4 FACTORY is a start-up company consisting of experienced professionals and technology people from the world-leading industrial environment at Rubbestadneset and Stord. We are located in premises on Rubbestadneset quay, centrally between Bergen and Stavanger. Locally, the place is better known as the «terminal building on the speedboat quay.
Together with our partners, we develop and deliver effective and sustainable production solutions for our customers. Our growth strategy is to build strong partnerships with market leaders to strengthen our customers market position.
First i4 Factory is already installed at Rubbestadneset pir, ready for component production and deliveries to customers. In addition this first factory will serve as a pilot production unit for satellite factories installed locally at customer sites. Future plans include additional CNC machines and 3D printers integrated.
Rubbestadneset has since early 19th century developed and delivered state of the art technology for maritim and energy industry. Our knowledge and experience is based on rotating machinery with high precision tolerances. Over the last decades production activities have been constantly moved around to different production locations far away from the assembly or the final consumer. This is not effective nor environmentally friendly. With our standardised and fully automised factory for machined parts, called i4 Factory, we are now able to offer a solution which may be installed nearby the end consumer with all its benefits.
