A factory is a station facility run by Groulien Salt Hogs. The factory can create almost any cargo that you have the technology for, at lower prices then buying directly from the build menu and often at lower prices than traders.

The cost of building these goods can be further decreased by researching them in the laboratory.

Nine items can be queued in a factory. Players should be aware that repeatedly adding items to the queue may lead to the death of the Salt-Hog workers as they will not be able to leave to fulfill their needs.

Cargo can spoil and break down if left on the deck, becoming only fit for recycling.
