Factbird established its first U.S. office in mid-2022 with the vision of helping thousands of American facilities digitally transform. By making facilities more profitable through data, Factbird has helped customers save millions of dollars by reducing waste, identifying bottlenecks, and avoiding unnecessary IT projects.
Among its current customers are top global pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and industrial solution companies, including Novo Nordisk, Grundfos, Danfoss, Royal Unibrew, and Bosch.
Data-Driven Operational Excellence
Factbird’s Manufacturing Intelligence Solutions combine plug-and-play hardware and cloud software. Regardless of the company’s size or the age of the machines in use, Factbird is quick to install and brings an immediate ROI. Data from manufacturing processes provides a goldmine of valuable information on how to operate more efficiently and profitably.
After implementing Factbird, management can check the factory overview daily, plant managers can track the order fulfillment, and the head of engineering can see which problems need the most attention. The data in the Factbird cloud can be as high level or as granular as users need.
Michael Borman, US Head of Sales and Country Manager at Factbird, says, “Labor shortages, global competition, and inflation are major challenges for facilities in the US. Process improvement is more important than ever, and Factbird makes this simple by presenting real-time data from any process in a way that immediately benefits everyone, helping operations produce more with less waste.”
A More Digitized, Sustainable Industry
The goal is to help manufacturers produce more using fewer resources, contributing to higher profitability and sustainability. Factbird is a proven solution where customers see a 22–25 percent increase in OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) on average in their first year.
Additionally, it costs as little as 10 percent to implement compared to similar solutions on the market, bringing massive returns to factories using Factbird’s powerful Manufacturing Intelligence Solution.
A Strong Presence in the U.S.
Factbird’s U.S. arm, Factbird Inc., is based in Morristown, New Jersey, and is committed to supporting American manufacturing companies by boosting digitization as quickly and seamlessly as possible.
Salman Rehan, Senior Enterprise Account Manager at Factbird, says, “It’s an exciting time as we expand our client base from an already solid foundation. I’ve been in the industrial automation space for several years supporting manufacturers in digitalization, process improvement, and LEAN methodologies—essentially implementing Industry 4.0 initiatives. Our clients enjoy real-time visibility into performance, understanding reasons for variances in production, and attaining concrete improvements to their bottom line.”
2023 Process Expo
Michael Borman & the US team will be attending the Process Expo in Chicago, a global food equipment and technology show, from October 23–25. There, the US Factbird team will be ready to advise manufacturers on methods to improve their data capture processes, reduce waste, improve OEE, and increase profitability.
