Plexus awarded Silver SC21 status

Plexus has announced that it has been awarded Silver status in the global SCS Competitiveness SC21 (Supply Chains Solutions Competitiveness – Supply Chains for the 21st Century) improvement programme.

To achieve silver status, Plexus aligned its internal guidelines and its own Plexus System of Operational Excellence (PSOE), an integrated manufacturing execution system that forms the foundation of operational excellence and drives continuous improvement at Plexus, with the requirements of the SC21 accreditation. Plexus’ overarching aim is to enable all of its manufacturing sites to deploy PSOE based on their individual needs, priorities and absorption capacity.

Since implementing the programme, Plexus has been able to accelerate its efforts to reduce set-up time, improve workforce skills and the efficiency of its production processes, and reduce waste. This supports Plexus’ experience in delivering optimal supply chain solutions in increasingly connected and competitive economies, helping customers deliver complex products in demanding regulatory environments.

Alan Buchanan, general manager for Plexus UK, said: “Our continuous improvement philosophy allows us to proactively expose problems and find ways to fix them. Our innovative and flexible approach ensures we continue to deliver customer value and spark positive change. We are incredibly proud of achieving SC21 Silver status, another significant milestone for Plexus in the UK, and look forward to it supporting our ability to deliver for our customers.”

Douglas Turnbull, continuous improvement leader Snr., added: “At Plexus, we’re proud of what we deliver in terms of operational excellence. SC21 allows us to share our experiences and continuously learn with like-minded collaborators.”
