Product Information  
System Plex
Vendor Plex
Description 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 inaccuracy and breakdowns, they built Plex to make the plant run better. Plex rapidly expanded to support a wide range of discrete manufacturing operations from metal formers to food and beverage companies. The Plex Smart Manufacturing Platform now connects every manufacturing operation in the cloud for maximum efficiency, productivity and visibility, while supporting continuous innovation.
