Trusstor is a next generation command and control system powered by real-time location and site condition sensors, aiming to create a safer and more productive working environment for the construction industry.
Trusstor’s system is intended to provide insights for construction site management, including real-time monitoring of all of the site resources,thereby accelerating response time to unplanned events and the enforcement of health and safety regulations.

The aim is to grow the company’s geographical scope following the investment from Builtup Ventures. “We look forward to working with the BuiltUp Ventures team to help us grow our customer base in the US and Europe,” commented Arik Davidi and Or Lakritz, founders of StructShare.
