What our customers say. 

“We transferred a product from a design firm to Plexus Corp. for manufacturing. The device required research and development to be completed, design for excellence (DFX) to be performed and a manufacturing line to be implemented. Plexus completed the work as promised within budget and time constraints. They provided routine and accurate updates and were a pleasure to work with.”
