Plexus the product realization company realizes significant value

Juarez, Mexico and Silicon Valley, CA

Plexus Corp. (Nasdaq: PLXS), a leading provider of product development, design, manufacturing and testing services to the electronics industry and Pelyco Systems today announced an on-going commitment to webPUBLISH™ within the Juarez, Mexico facility. Plexus has licensed webPUBLISH for TradeMatrix® Factory Planner® from Pelyco to provide on demand access to critical planning and scheduling information for master planners, buyers, planners and schedulers within the Juarez factory.

In today's fast paced, intelligent e-business world, organizations must stay ahead of the competition both at the strategic and operational level. In order to execute on those needs, Plexus selected Pelyco to help leverage their investment in Factory Planner. With webPUBLISH, Plexus will increase productivity and competitive advantage to a more distributed user community throughout the organization.

Plexus operates two leased facilities, a recently constructed 210,000 square foot state of the art electronic manufacturing facility, and a 40,000 square foot service center in Juarez, Mexico. At this Mexico turnkey manufacturing operation, Plexus provides customers with a proven low-cost labor solution, which is an integral component of Plexus' overall commitment to supporting the needs of customers and accelerating top-line growth.

"Our operation demands a particularly fast response to our customers and we have found webPUBLISH to be an integral part of our customer responsiveness. In addition we continue to improve operational efficiencies," said Tom Dodson, Master Scheduling Manager, Plexus Mexico. "Specifically we documented a 20% increase in parts planned per planner while at the same time reducing staffing levels by 16%. This is something we could never have achieved without webPUBLISH."

"Plexus is exactly the kind of customer we strive to serve. They have clear operational goals, exceptional people and an over whelming commitment to their customers." said Colin Finn, Vice President of Sales of Pelyco. "As we work with an innovator like Plexus we are constantly challenged to deliver solutions to their business problems. This mutual focus on customer value is what we strive to execute on."
