About Ryberg:

The mission of Ryberg is to provide intelligent and efficient disinfection at scale through robotic innovation. Our autonomous disinfection systems ensure that our clients spaces are safely disinfected and prevent viruses and bacteria from spreading. Ryberg achieves this by combining high-end innovation, robotics and medical science.
