Investment in robots at Jæren really started in 1963, when Jæren Automasjonsselskap and Ole Molag decided to develop an industrial robot. This led to the setting up of Trallfa Robot, with the intention of starting production of painting robots. The first professional robot was exported in 1969. Since then, the company and robot have become leaders on the world stage, with licensed production starting in Japan and the USA as early as 1972.
In 1985, the company was sold to ABB, and growing demand in Asia led to production moving to China in 2009.
