Maximo purchased the abandoned factory in Greyton 2 years ago and has gradually refitted it as a help centre.
Under this guise Maximo uses the factory as a research and development centre for their new line of experimental robots, or clones. With 50 robots maintaining the help centre and being monitored by a team of 20 scientists.
The clones live on site and the old social club has been re-purposed as an activity centre used for evening enrichment courses.
Precautions have been made to limit the contact between humans and the experimental robots but some of the scientist are tempted to allow the robots into the town, testing them against the Turning Test.
