Our story

MachIQ was founded in 2016 by Antonin & Roy to offer a platform connecting machine operators with maintenance needs to machine builders who offer after-sales services. Our goal was to make it easy and cost efficient to maintain industrial equipment at their highest performance levels.


As opposed to OEM-branded customer portals, MachIQ’s philosophy is to be neutral and open to all brands in order to offer industrial operators the resources they need to maintain all their equipment in their plant, on one portal. On MachIQ, OEMs and industrial operators can share data securely, deliver/consume services digitally and as a result, collaborate effectively to improve the performance and availability of industrial assets and ensure worker safety.

Who we are

We are an international team of MRO domain experts, software engineers and project managers united by our bias towards action. Our team comprises exclusively of a different breed of “PHD’s” – Passionate, Humble and Determined individuals.

We embrace diversity of thought and find strength in our different cultural and educational backgrounds. As a team, we laugh a lot, support each other, dream big and love what we do unreservedly.
