We believe that the
Smart Factory and Industry 4.0
should be accessible to every manufacturer, regardless of size or budget

How we started

IndustryApps is the world's first open marketplace, focused on providing Industry 4.0 apps to manufacturers. We provide innovative and secure solutions in a simple, subscription-based, plug and play model that can be deployed within days, no hardware or software installation required.

The company was founded by Rolf and Sandeep, manufacturing industry leaders who are veterans of the enterprise space. They realised there was a huge opportunity to help growing manufacturers and IndustryApps was envisioned with the idea that it should be simple for companies to create their own connected smart factory.

Our mission and vision

To be the trusted partner for every manufacturer, be they small, mid-sized or at the enterprise level, as they embark on their digital journey – bridging the gap between what’s possible and what’s practical. Built on open industry standards, secure and risk-free.

Why now?

Even though it’s been more than ten years since Industry 4.0 was first introduced, less than 25% of companies have joined the digitalisation revolution. As industry veterans of a DAX- listed manufacturer, we realised that the industry is facing a supply chain problem. On the one hand, there are many new and innovative technologies and solutions being introduced, while on the other end there are many manufacturers struggling to digitalise their manufacturing operations. So how can we offer an open environment for manufacturers that offers them complete freedom to choose and control their technology or framework?

What we do

Our Industry 4.0 Appstore serves as a hub for manufacturers to discover new products and services from the newest and most innovative providers in their respective space. It also provides a single platform dashboard for these solutions as well as integration with factory management systems such as MES, ERP etc., making it possible for companies to deploy high-quality IoT and other solutions without expensive setups or lengthy implementation periods.

We offer a complete, flexible and affordable way to adopt digitalisation of factories, to help our customers digitally transform their operations turning them into a smart factory through connecting all aspects of their factory and operations. 

Our Leaders

Rolf Knoerzer

Founder and CEO

Rolf has had a successful career of close to 30 years in production, logistics, and supply chain operations. From the very beginning of his work in various industries (predominantly automotive and chemical), he has been fascinated by the incredible efficiency and quality boosts industrial companies can achieve through digitalisation. Rolf looks forward to a future of sharing this passion and knowledge with our customers. It is a phenomenal time to be in manufacturing, and the revolution is just getting started.



Sandeep Sreekumar

Founder and COO

Sandeep is an electronics engineer by trade. For more than 20 years, he has been driven by the question, “Can we make things simpler?”. First applied to microelectronics (“Can we achieve this with a smaller PCB / lower power consumption / better TDP …”), then to business processes. In his 15 years dedicated exclusively to improving digital operations, he has developed the core belief that, yes, there is always one more thing you can do to improve quality, reduce waste, and - most important of all - simplify daily operations for people.




While we do not have any job openings at present, we are always excited to meet people who have a passion for all things digital. So, if you want to be part of the fourth industrial revolution, shape it, accelerate the digital transformation, and "make a dent in the universe," please share with us why you think you would fit in at IndustryApps.
