Plex was born on the shop floor of a factory making axles, pinion gears and drive shafts. Our founders are the workers who kept the presses running and made sure parts matched customer specs. Frustrated with inaccurate inventory, machine breakdowns and even making the wrong parts, they built Plex to make the plant run better. The Plex Manufacturing Cloud now connects every manufacturing operation in the cloud for maximum efficiency, productivity and visibility, while supporting continuous innovation.
Starting with automotive metalforming in 2001, Plex rapidly expanded to support a wide range of discrete manufacturing operations across many industries. We later added process manufacturing capabilities, targeted specifically at food and beverage producers. Plex now supports more than 400 organizations and 1,300 production facilities in 20 countries around the world.
