Who we are

Factry helps industrial companies improve their production processes. And we’re one of a kind, because we’re experts in connecting industrial equipment with modern open source software.

We’ve been international since day 1: while based in Ghent, Belgium, we maintain Factry software all over the world! And we’re good at it, too: our clients love our work. We wouldn’t settle for less.

Our Core Values

  • Transparency We believe open and accessible information is the best way to help others, to transfer knowledge and to create trust. We help our customers to gain clear insights by implementing an open data culture in their company.
  • Excellence Backed up by 20 years of experience, we strive for maximum customer satisfaction by enhancing operational efficiency and productivity. Our secret goal is to make clients say they should have met us earlier.
  • Innovation Factry believes radical innovation is key to operational improvement. We evoke change by guiding our clients towards a digital factory, delivering solutions that create value today and in the future.
  • Authenticity We believe in being the same people we are online and offline, in the office and outside of it. We take our time to understand your challenges, deliver solutions and to continuously build genuine customer intimacy.
  • Optimism We believe that any industrial process can benefit from automation, even on a very modest scale. We spread the power of optimism, as we believe small steps can make a big difference in creating the factory of the future.
  • Fun factor Factry is about creating fun and exciting user experiences. We love empowering people to explore, experiment, and make better operational decisions based on historical data. Anytime, on any device and in real-time.
