AUBURN HILLS, MI, April 7-Plexus Systems Inc. (Auburn Hills, MI), provider of software for manufacturing enterprises, has signed contracts with Wescast Industries Inc. (Brantford, Ontario), supplier of cast exhaust manifolds for passenger cars and light trucks. Under the agreements, Plexus will provide a global implementation of Plexus Online, the on-demand software for the manufacturing enterprise.

Implementation will begin with the Wescast Asian Business Unit centered in Wuhan, China, and one North American facility.

“Plexus brought a deep understanding of the automotive industry, core competency in manufacturing, and the flexibility to meet both local and global requirements,” says Ed Frackowiak, chairman and chief executive officer, Wescast Industries Inc. “Through the unique Software as a Service (SaaS) deployment model, Plexus demonstrated the ability to deploy system changes to meet our requirements in a matter of days and hours, rather than in the months-and-years timeframe that typical system upgrades take.”
