The origin of Remote Engineer

The journey that began from a single question and grew into a successful business.

In this blog we take you into the past, present and future of Remote Engineer. Officially Remote Engineer was founded in 2010 in Akkrum, The Netherlands. The foundation was laid in 2008.

The origin of Remote Engineer comes from an urgent request from a machine builder. The wish of this customer was to be able to access and manage their machines remotely. Mainly with the aim to save travel time and costs but also to improve  service towards their customers.

This concept worked so well that colleagues and other companies asked the machine builder where to buy this product. From that moment on, Remote Engineer was born. The solution consists of hardware and software.
