Andrea Cassoni describes ABB’s plans to shake up construction – with a little help from industrial robots

Andrea Cassoni, managing director of the industry business line at ABB’s Robotics and Discrete Automation division, spoke to Construction Europe’s editor, Mike Hayes, about the company’s plans.
