PEER Group - Factory Applications - Peer Factory

We utilize PEER FACTORY’s framework of proven components developed from years of successful high-technology automation projects to tailor a solution that meets your exact needs. PEER Group’s experienced automation software engineers typically build the system per customer specification: tool connectivity, data management, user interface development, and information delivery to ERP and other corporate systems.

PEER FACTORY is scalable; you can start with a simple data collection system for a single tool or device, then grow this solution into a full-scale manufacturing IT system using the same common robust architecture.

PEER Group

PEER Group opened its doors in February 1992. Back then, we had a small office and only two engineers – our founders, Bob Harris and Mike Kropp. Both had worked at ATS developing integrated assembly systems for precision manufacturing. They had an idea to develop reusable software that would connect automated equipment with factory information systems, and PEER Group focused originally on custom factory floor data collection systems.

Fast-forward a quarter of a century: today, we are a global company with headquarters in Kitchener, Canada and European headquarters in Dresden, Germany. We provide the largest portfolio of factory automation software products and we have shipped over 100,000 licenses, making us the largest supplier of automation software for OEMs and factories in the semiconductor and related industries.
