This renovation completes Plexus’ multi-year investment to expand and upgrade all eight of its global engineering facilities.
Plexus’ Engineering Solutions rapid prototyping factory and electrical and mechanical laboratories are co-located in this purpose-built facility. This co-location is intended to foster a high level of cooperation and an efficient way for customers to access Plexus’ teams that support the development of highly complex products from conceptual design to manufacturing.
Within the facility, Plexus has expanded its engineering services, specifically within analogue and digital circuit design, mechanical modelling and prototyping, industrial design and internet of things (IoT) platform development. Plexus said that it was looking to use this investment to maintain its leadership position within the fast-paced electronic engineering and manufacturing industry.
Digital Economy Minister Kate Forbes commented, “I am delighted to announce that Plexus [has] been awarded a £1.07 million grant from Scottish Enterprise as part of a £3.21 million R&D project being undertaken by the company. This investment is expected to create five additional R&D jobs at the Pyramids site and lead to an increase in revenue. Innovative and ambitious companies like Plexus are vital to the Scottish economy.”
Paul Lewis, Managing Director, International Economic Development, Scottish Enterprise, added, “As a leader in electronics manufacturing and engineering services, Plexus’ continued presence in Scotland is symbolic of the country’s reputation for excellence in the electronics industry.”
Mr. Lewis continued, “Plexus has invested heavily in Scotland over the past few years, expanding its facilities, refining its processes and increasing productivity to ensure it remains globally competitive. Its latest project underlines both its commitment to achieving and maintaining the highest possible standards, and to its Scottish operations.”
