Factry is a Belgian software company that was founded in 2016. Our team has over 20 years of experience in the global manufacturing and processing industry
Our core mission is to introduce data-driven, operational improvements and greater insight to our clients by offering a scalable platform for the easy collection, storage and visualisation of sensor data from any type of industrial equipment.
Factry Historian is a child of the open source revolution. Back in 2016 we believed that open source technologies had matured sufficiently to play an important role in the production industry. And, beyond that, to outplay the proprietary historians sold by large vendors in terms of performance and functionality, user-friendliness, and pricing. That is exactly what happened.
By leveraging and combining state-of-the-art open source technologies we are able to dramatically increase data visibility and offer frictionless access to data for everyone in a manufacturing, processing or production context. With many installations now running for years, our historian and the open technologies it is built on have clearly delivered on their promise.
