About Us

Why Are We Here?

The manufacturing industry is fragmented resulting in a lot of inefficiency and waste.

Our mission is to guide manufacturing to become sustainable. And sustainability means more than green. We do this by continuously finding ways to improve efficiency, accessibility, and quality for the sake of manufacturing, leaning on our three pillars of sustainability:

Environmental sustainability

  • Maximizing the everyday use of available machinery
  • Using the right machine for the specific job
  • Reducing material waste by order aggregation
  • Keeping manufacturing close to the customer

Economic sustainability

  • Decreasing prices for customers by matching a supplier with the right skills
  • Increasing revenues for suppliers by forwarding jobs suitable for them
  • Saving alternative time for our clients and suppliers
  • Managing risk for all parties by taking responsibility for the process

Social sustainability

  • Working alongside universities to improve engineering education
  • Supporting non-profit engineering projects
  • Speaking in public to raise awareness about the sector
  • Working with manufacturing organizations to build an environment for growth

The Solution
