Plex Systems Cloud ERP Powers Industry-Leading Manufacturers

November 14, 2017

3 successful companies transform their business and manufacturing operations by innovating, & leading the way with a cloud-based ERP system solution.

TROY, Mich., Nov. 14, 2017 – Plex Systems, the leader in cloud ERP for manufacturing, today profiled more leading companies across discrete and process manufacturing industries that are running on the Plex Manufacturing Cloud. Organizations are using Plex in nearly 1,900 manufacturing facilities in more than 20 countries, in industries such as automotive, aerospace, food and beverage, high-tech, industrial equipment, and metal fabrication.

Leaders Running Plex    

  • G&W Products is a contract metal manufacturing and coating company serving a wide range of industries—from military components to energy, transportation, and retail. Founded in 1968, the company is a proven leader in metal components and assembly. G&W turned to Plex for a single source of truth of data spanning its entire operation, from quality management to financial accounting. With the Plex Manufacturing Cloud now fully deployed, G&W has reduced inventory on hand by 25 percent, increased on-time delivery to nearly 98 percent, and increased profitability more than 10 percent. Learn more about the G&W story from the team that made it happen.
  • Hausbeck Pickles & Peppers Company began as a local provider in 1923, and starting with Burger King in the 1980s, rode the skyrocketing fast food industry to become one of the largest makers of pickles and peppers. Today the organization serves some of the world’s largest chains, including Yum! Brands, Sonic Drive-In, and Subway. For Hausbeck, quality is fundamental. Plex has helped the company embed traceability and quality in every aspect of its operation, producing up to 400,000 pounds of pickles each day—that’s 50 million pounds annually. Plex ERP has significantly reduced the amount of time required for traceability of product during mock recalls, which are a required element of food safety audits.

  • Motus Integrated Technologies is the leading manufacturer of high-performance headliners, visors and interior trim components for the global automotive market. A year after choosing and deploying the Plex Manufacturing Cloud across their operations, Motus expanded their deployment to include a new acquisition, Leon Automotive Interiors. Motus has now deployed Plex at its three Leon manufacturing facilities in Mexico, expanding their global footprint and building on a strong foundation. Motus operations now include the U.S., Germany, France, and Mexico.
