Reading time ( words)

Flex has been named a winner of five 2019 Manufacturing Leadership Awards for its outstanding achievement in four categories: sustainability leadership, supply chain leadership, enterprise integration & technology leadership and next-generation leadership.

“We are proud to receive five Manufacturing Leadership Awards,” said Francois Barbier, president, global operations & components at Flex. “This recognition further demonstrates Flex’s proven history of innovative global manufacturing solutions and our ability to bring ideas from multiple industries to create groundbreaking products for our customers.”

Flex was recognized twice in the Supply Chain Leadership category. First, for its Integrated Product Development Model (IPDM), a supply chain and operations program that leverages the Flex ecosystem to deliver products faster and meet market opportunities. It is comprised of real-time supply chain tools, advanced analytics, market intelligence, and global sourcing best practices.

Additionally, Flex was recognized for Flex PulseTM, an intelligent supply chain platform that increases visibility and velocity by compiling data from more than 88 different processes into visualized analytics. It utilizes digital, mobile, and cloud-based technologies to provide the company’s global Pulse centers and 5,800 supply chain associates with the ability to communicate, share data, and develop a common understanding of what’s happening across its myriad networks.

For the second consecutive year, Flex has been recognized in the Sustainability Leadership category. This year, Flex-founded company Sinctronics was recognized for its leadership in the circular economy. Sinctronics collects electronics materials to be refurbished or re-manufactured, and designs products to facilitate reuse, enabling the IT industry to combat electronic waste and pollution and become more sustainable.

The Flex XR Stream Remote Assistance Augmented Reality Application was recognized in the Enterprise Integration & Technology Leadership category for its ability to streamline real-time information sharing through a network of subject matter experts and improve communication with video conferencing capabilities. The secure app features markerless annotation tracking through a live stream, tracked conversation history, and the ability to share documents, enabling cost reductions and productivity enhancements.

In addition, Flex XR & Simulation Staff Manager Zohair Mehkri was recognized for excellence in Next-Generation Leadership for his role on the corporate manufacturing engineering team, where he manages global corporate strategies for next generation technologies, future manufacturing methodologies and processes to help bring Industry 4.0 solutions to the manufacturing floor.

Flex will be recognized at the 15th Annual Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala, which is to be held on the last day of the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 10-12, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa in Huntington Beach, California.
