DESCRIBE YOUR BUSINESS.
Boxabl is a patented building manufacturing technology that aims to revolutionize housing markets worldwide. We plan to slash housing costs by 50 percent and build time by 90 percent.
HOW WAS THE CONCEPT CONCEIVED?
After dealing with the problems of stick-built and modular homes, the headaches of finding contractors, dealing with weather, site theft and labor shortages, we realized there had to be a better way. We wondered why housing was not built like everything else in the modern world, in a factory, taking advantage of economies of scale, specialization of labor and assembly-line factory production efficiencies.
DESCRIBE THE PROCESS.
Customers visit our online configurator, customize their home and click order. They select a certified assembly specialist, and rooms can arrive on site as quickly as the next day. The rooms are unpacked and dropped into place by a crane. An assembly specialist completes finishing touches, and it’s home sweet home.
WHO ARE YOUR CLIENTS?
Boxabl caters to large developers who can help us build up our factories and supply lines. As the company develops, we plan to take on the homeowner and end user.
