The company was founded in 2007 by Pascal Essiembre (president).[2][3] Norconex headquarters are in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada.[4]


Norconex positions itself as search technology independent, working with different commercial search technology and vendors as well as open-source search. Being based in Canada’s national capital region helped Norconex grow by reaching a good presence in the Canadian Federal sector. In the commercial sector, Norconex customers come from various activity sectors including manufacturing, publishing, health, technology, and legal.[citation needed]

In 2013 Norconex released its first contribution to the open-source community with its HTTP Web crawler (named Norconex HTTP Collector).[5][6][7]
