What is Factory One?

Factory One is an industrial capability center in Qatar that brings forth the model factory concept to empower Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). We leverage the combined power of experiential and theoretical learning using real machines, production processes and systems to support businesses in improving their productivity and performance.

As the first model factory in GCC, our focus is on helping manufacturing SMEs in Qatar and the region transform and achieve operational excellence like never before. By supplementing hands-on, real-world experience in the model factory with classroom training and dedicated advisory support, we provide end-to-end delivery of lean production principles to businesses, from learning to implementation to value capture.

Factory One has been developed and funded by Qatar Development Bank. In collaboration with McKinsey & Company, we bring you world-class experience in lean operations and model factory concept offered through a broad spectrum of capability building and SME transformation programs. Our offerings include a variety of programs aimed to enable entrepreneurs and innovative companies in the Middle East to compete in a global market, driven by efficiency, innovation, and competitive advantage.
