GenieBelt – Press kit

We are on a mission

GenieBelt was born out of frustration whilst trying to solve the same problems on construction sites time and time again. After working with a crazy amount of construction companies we’re ready to change the dinosaur ways of the industry. We want to feel proud of the industry we love whilst constantly shaking things up at the same time. We want to bring modern technologies to construction in a no-nonsense, affordable, simple and easy-to-use way.

We want to build the future of construction.
