OX Origin was born in 2020, in the heart of Transylvania, out of passion for solving challenging engineering problems and streamlining the current engineering process in the Space industry which is still based on the "old school" labour intensive and menial tasks that are innefficient and extremely prone to human error.

OX Origin specialises in the development of both novel software tools and advanced systems for the high-tech industries such as Space.

Our goal is to help companies innovate, digitalise and streamline their engineering development process by using time and capital more efficiently.

Our ultimate mission is to make a significant contribution to humanity's technological advancement.
