This investment round was led by CSL Ventures with participation from existing and new investors Blu Ventures, Texas Ventures and Texas Halo Fund. With this round of funding, Machfu plans to accelerate its successes in Smart Grid and Oil & Gas markets along with expanding its footprint in the industrial space.

And Machfu has developed products and services for the Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) market that let customers focus on their core strengths, including operations, efficiency and new business models.
