Empower industrial innovation for a more connected and sustainable Earth.

 

Our Story

In 2011, Arch’s CTO and Co-founder, Tim Burke, was in Tanzania trying to help rural villagers have access to clean drinking water. Previously, the focus had been on drilling new wells, but they had recently become aware of an alarming fact: 40% of existing wells are broken at any given time. To solve this, Burke and his team endeavored to build an ultra-low-cost cellular monitoring system, but the technology wasn’t there yet. In 2015, Stanford colleagues Andrew Scheuermann and Tim Burke founded Arch to provide that monitoring system, and, by 2016, wells serving up to 10,000 people were equipped in Tanzania.

This problem is not unique. People all over the world recognize such opportunities and are trying to build smart, connected infrastructure yet lack the tools and resources necessary to do the job. In response, Arch Systems has grown to address this need with its cutting-edge ArchFX Platform, which is now utilized by manufacturers worldwide. Through these innovative solutions, Arch Systems enables manufacturers to reduce waste and deliver manufacturing efficiency at scale. Today, Arch Systems continues its mission to create a more equitable and sustainable world with intelligent data insights.
