Siemens Building Technologies Division is acquiring Building Robotics, a market leader in the fast growing digital workplace experience app domain; their simple-to-use app Comfy enables people to take control of their environment and provides feedback on their space. With this acquisition, Siemens is setting a further milestone in smart building solutions.
Headquartered in Oakland, California, the start-up achieved its leadership position by developing a simple-to-use app that enables people to take control of their environment.
Building Robotics, best known by the name of its core product, Comfy, will now be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Siemens Industry and continue to operate as a vendor-agnostic platform provider.
The two co-founders CEO Andrew Krioukov and CTO Stephen Dawson-Haggerty will remain in their current position in the management team of Building Robotics. “This move further strengthens our leadership position in smart buildings,” says Matthias Rebellius, CEO of Siemens Building Technologies.
“With the Comfy app we will bring a consumer-like experience to commercial buildings that simplifies the interaction with buildings to increase employee productivity and engagement.”
