You are right. I had forgotten that the Breen seem to have found
that factory. It had probably been constructed by Lore.
The Breen were able to activate at least 3 postitronic androids and to program them. It wasn't clear to me how well their scientists understood their workings.
In which novel are you referring to? In the middle one the four androids were run via telepresence. In "persistence of memory" I did not recall any functional Breen androids that Soong did not program. I also thought Data claimed the Breen were not close to incepting positronic brains.
