Complete & integrated solution
Best-of-breed capabilities for the entire manufacturing process.
CAT Squared was founded in 1995 as a small consultancy building custom software solutions for food manufacturers. Over the decades, our solutions grew and became an interconnected MES (Manufacturing Execution System) capable of controlling all processes on the plant floor. Additionally, our team developed a deep understanding of food production processes, especially in the meat and poultry industries. Our team now applies our decades of manufacturing wisdom by teaching our customers how to maximize the value of our systems and drive continuous improvement across their enterprises.
