Our history

2015

YETI Snow Technology was founded

YETI Snow Technology was founded by Øveraasen and Semcon in 2015. The company has developed self-driving snow removal vehicles for airports in close cooperation with Avinor. The solution aimed to increase efficiency and reduce delays at airports. A full-scale pilot was demonstrated March 19th 2018 at Fagernes Airport in Norway.

HUSQVARNA GROUP AND EXPANSION IN MULTIPLE VERTICALS

The autumn of 2019 Husqvarna Group also invested in Yeti, and the company started expanding in multiple business verticals. In 2019 the company also demonstrated a project with autonomous wheel loader, compactor and industrial grass cutter.

Moving forward

To reflect the expansion into multiple verticals the company changed name to YETI MOVE (Mission Oriented Vehicle Ecosystem) in the spring of 2020. YETI MOVE is focusing on industrial autonomy in a professional controlled environment with repetitive tasks e.g. airports, maritime ports, railyards, industrial sites, construction etc.
