The factory was discovered by Jedi Master Daakman Barrek and his Padawan Sha'a Gi, ensuing in the Battle of Hypori. This particular droid factory somehow survived the deactivation of the Separatist Droid Army by the Sith Lord Darth Vader in 19 BBY.
During the Galactic Civil War, the Hutt Cartel took an interest in this factory, and Jabba the Hutt hoped to use it to destroy Tyber Zann and his army. However, his plan was a failure due to Zann's tenacity. After that, Tyber would use Hypori's resources to produce droideka Mark IIs, powerful droids that would be used to spread his corruption across the galaxy.
