Since the mid 1990s Flemming Jørgensen, founder of Inrotech, has worked with software development and automation. In addition to his engineering education, which includes mechanical as well as software engineering, Flemming also is a trained and experienced blacksmith and offshore welder. In 1997 he started his own company called Robcom. In this company Flemming Jørgensen worked with many kinds of automation concepts for a wide range of large Danish companies. Among others he worked with welding automation at Odense Steel Shipyard, Lindoe (A. P. Møller Maersk owned) from 1997-1999 and again from 2007-2009.
In 2008-2009, Flemming Jørgensen, the founder of Robcom (which became Inrotech in 2010), worked at Odense Steel Shipyard Lindoe as a welding and automation consultant. During this period Flemming Jørgensen created a new and very innovative way of performing welding automation at the shipyard. In two different projects at Odense Steel Shipyard Lindoe, 10 of these welding robot systems were installed. The work they carried out was unique and very successful. For more information about these applications study the cases on www.inrotech.com
Unfortunately, as we all know today, it was decided to close down Odense Steel Shipyard Lindoe in 2010-2011. However, the unique concept of welding automation invented by Flemming Jørgensen and the very different approach of doing welding automation had created international interest. A shipyard from Japan, one of the most effective shipyards in the world, was interested in this technology. And also other shipyards showed keen interest in this new unique technology. In order to comply with the requests from the market, Flemming Jørgensen decided to form the company Inrotech in early 2010. In March 2010 Inrotech and the Japanese shipyard made a contract for the supply of 8 Inrotech welding robot systems. This contract and following contracts with Meyer Werft in Germany and STX Tulcea in Romania (now part of Vard group) gave Inrotech a quick and prosperous take off.
Since then Inrotech has also supplied their innovative and very flexible welding robot technology to an offshore project in Wales. Hoisted down the inside of the wind mills the Inrotech welding robot system successfully has performed hours and hours of multipass welds in confined spaces and very tough environments. Today Inrotech can proudly look back at the completion of a very successful project. The Inrotech set-up had a decisive role to play and performed welding to the highest offshore requirements in the market. See more details under “statements” & “case stories” on www.inrotech.com. In November 2013 Inrotech and Flemming Jørgensen received the EER 2013 award for their strong innovation and high entrepreneurial spirit. During the first half of 2014 Inrotech has strengthened the whole set-up in the company with:
- A stronger management level in the company with a new CEO and CCO.
- New and strong partners in the ownership of Inrotech.
- New board of directors with very experienced international business people.
All in all Inrotech stands today well prepared for playing an important role in the heavy industry being a specialist company within innovative welding automation concepts.
