Strong growth for Norwegian start-up
The Trondheim company Assitech has developed the stair assistant Assistep - a walker for stairs that provides support to those who need more than a regular handrail. Assistep is a good alternative to stair lifts, because it provides greater movement for users and less intervention to the building.
Product development with a focus on design and safety
The product started as a student project in 2012, but when the entrepreneurs saw the commercial potential, they quickly established the company to turn the idea into business.
The product was industrialized and has undergone all necessary certifications. Since its inception in 2014, the company has worked actively with marketing and growth, and is now established in 15 countries..
Acquisitions with the opportunity for faster growth
In August 2021, Assitech was acquired by Topro Industri AS in Gjøvik, which is a large manufacturer of walkers. Topro exports to all over the world and has offices in 14 countries, and will contribute with resources on marketing and further product development to Assitech.
Streamlining with NewTracks
NewTracks has worked with Assitech for several years to help reduce the cost of mechanical components. Recently, a tool for cast aluminum was completed. Combination of both higher quality and lower price, in addition to good technical solutions, is the reason why Assitech has chosen to work with NewTracks.
NewTracks works with product development and production of mechanical components.
