Our Story

Our Purpose 

Before Plant.Digital, Distributed Control Systems and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) ran operations within industrial companies. ​

The challenge with this approach is that changing any aspect of operations requires an understanding of the financial and productivity impacts which in turn requires data extraction and manual analysis that consumes time and resources. ​

At Plant.Digital, we offer a set of Integrated Manufacturing Operation Management Solutions (iMOMS) that connect Distributed Control Systems to the ERP to provide data in real-time which will help improve plant productivity and ultimately increase profit. ​

iMOMS do this by:​

Harmonizing and streamlining processes, assets,
and people 

Creating operational transformational excellence through
a digital suite of solutions

Creating real value through innovation, advice, design,
delivery, and

Leveraging the existing technology built and operating in Aramco for over 15 years.

Bringing together domain, technology,
and change

Our Vision

​We aim to contribute to global innovation by becoming a global industry leader that specializes in implementing, supporting, and optimizing a suite of reliable and highly accessible industrial digital solutions.

Our Mission

To provide a reliable, and scalable package of integrated industrial software solutions that reduces cost and improves efficiency, productivity, safety, and sustainability in the long term for industries across the globe.

Why We’re Different

We are focused on innovation and enabling the transformation of organizations by enhancing operations to improve and support people, processes, and the environment.

Our foundations are made up of the combined experience of two global entities: Aramco and Honeywell. While one offers domain expertise, pre-configured industrial digital solutions, and a proven methodology, the other brings digital technology expertise, delivery capabilities, support staff, and market access.

Whether the operation is in petrochemicals, water desalination, mining, minerals, or F&B production, we will provide:

  1. More rapid time to value through experienced system integration using a pre-configured, fully Integrated Manufacturing Operations Management Solution (iMOMS)​

  2. A specialized domain with technology experts focused on innovation, delivery, and dedicated support regarding our digital solutions​

  3. Reduced delivery risks and proven return on investment thanks to the extensive domain and project execution experience in downstream refining and petrochemical plants

  4. A long-term, reliable partnership that supports and delivers a transformation toward operational excellence​
