Do you ever need a temporary automation expert to get you over a project hump? Ever wish there was something akin to Angie’s List for PLC programmers and other skilled industrial technical people?

Andy Urda called the other day to introduce me to a new company and concept in the workforce staffing industry—FactoryFix. Andy’s been in the industrial market for a long time with a few motion control suppliers. He’s trying some new things and ran into the founders of this company.

The idea is to match companies with needs for project help with local experts who specialize in the skills they need. FactoryFix has a platform that allows customers to post details about their project then wait as vetted service providers are brought to them.

According to the Web site, “We help industrial companies become more productive by providing an online marketplace of factory-wide solution providers. From basic machinery maintenance to custom assembly machines, our platform matches the customer with local companies whose expertise is perfect for their request. We also help entrepreneurs grow their businesses by solidifying their online presence and introducing to them local customers with immediate projects to bid on.”

There is no cost or obligation to post your project. Simply tell us what you need help with and get connected.

Read testimonials, ask questions and hire the best Expert for your project.

Within hours of posting your project, we match you with interested and available Experts whose expertise is just right for your request. Their introductions go directly to your inbox.

Review their profiles, read reviews, and ask them questions. When you’re ready, decide which Expert is the right fit for your project and hire them.

You’re free to work directly with the company and service providers you select; FactoryFix doesn’t want to play middle-man. After the project is completed, write a review about your experience on the Expert’s profile.

Interesting idea. Is this something you’d like? Do you do something similar now?
