  • Some information about Factory in a Box

A Factory in a Box (FIAB) is a rapidly deployable, remotely managed, modular manufacturing supply chain network enabled by industrial digital technologies.

FIAB manufacture is a rapid route to market for products with a faster ROI on its manufacturing innovation and new disruptive business models for the supply chain.

The MTC, in collaboration with partners in industry and academia, have built FIAB demonstrators to showcase how FIAB manufacture and industrial digital technologies will transform your manufacturing and supply chain in the future.
