It is a no brainer that “supply chain management” helps businesses streamline supply-side activities to maximize consumer value and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace. While this sounds simple in theory, many manufacturing supply chain organizations can testify to the opposite owing to the comprehensive processes involved in moving around a product—from an OEM to the enduser. Despite having access to best-in-class technologies and top talent, what these organizations do lack is a sustainable strategy to optimize resources and align their supply chain operations with their business goals. But, what does it take an organization to build such a viable strategy? Is it the inclusion of more talent? Technology? It’s neither. These firms can opt for training and development programs wherein they can build on existing resources rather than investing in new ones.
Founded in 1991, Plexus International has emerged as a global leader in providing comprehensive training, consulting, integrated qualification, and software application solutions to global manufacturing supply chain organizations. Plexus’s arsenal of services cover a range of topics including ISO standards, IATF 16949, AS9100, the AIAG Core Tools, Customer Specific Requirements and more in the aerospace, automotive, environmental management, medical device manufacturing fields, and beyond. The company also helps clients improve their audits in various standards and requirements, as well as provides support services in product development and process improvement right from the conceptualization phase all the way to production. Additionally, it plays a significant role in supply chain development by helping clients at every stage of their supply chain, from OEMs, and Tier 1s down to the Sub-Tier level.
“The services that we offer focus entirely on helping our clients achieve behavioral transformation at an individual level to ultimately drive a positive change in their organization. That’s been our mission statement since day one,” says John Bores, the Director of Sales at Plexus International.

It then drives business excellence that is independent of product, technology, and application, reducing the risk of interdependencies. Adopting such an approach, Plexus International helps clients create a sustainable system that enables them to maintain a customer focus, and continually improve when it comes to quality.
When it comes to developing clients’ leadership team, Plexus International follows the motto of ‘learn and share.’ Also, the company is directed by the single goal of aligning all stakeholders and sharing the lessons to ensure its services are consistent and standardized to meet the clients’ needs. It further empowers businesses to work seamlessly even after the completion of a project, meaning that they enable their clients to flourish on their own.
Plexus International’s offerings are fuelled by its outcome-driven, interactive, and workshop-style learning method, the Plexus Learning Model. It emphasizes the practical application of concepts in real-world scenarios. This helps the company to get a broader view of the clients’ underlying processes, their problems, and then identify opportunities to make their solutions more efficient.
“If I have to describe Plexus International in a word, it is intentionality. We understand and commit with intent. This ideology drives everything we do and how we work. To date, we believe that we have done a great job for our customers and society. Going forward, we envision to build on it and help people continually develop and grow,” adds Marcus Vivone, the Director of International Development and QMS Solutions.
Having such a unique approach, Plexus International has become a global player with footprints across diverse industry verticals. In addition to face-to-face training and consultancy, the company maintains its approach through online training, live virtual training, and live virtual consultancy. Given the impact of COVID-19 as a pandemic globally that has jolted enterprises across the world to work remotely in an attempt to reduce transmission and fight the crisis, live virtual training and consultancy will help Plexus International to maintain a seamless flow of communication with their clients and successfully meet their unique needs. “Our focus is to leverage technology, whether it is software, virtual learning techniques, or technology, to bring a larger value proposition to our customers,” concludes Bores.
