Plexus Corp. opens its expanded design center in Darmstadt today, doubling its engineering capacity in Germany. The facility will provide expertise in design and development engineering of complex products supporting customers in the healthcare/life sciences, industrial/commercial and aerospace/defense sectors.

The move to the larger premises underscores the continued commitment and growth of Plexus in the EMEA and DACH regions. The demand for design and development engineering services local to Europe has fueled this development. The number of Plexus employees in EMEA has risen by 66% over the last four years to approximately 2,240 employees as Plexus continues to invest in the breadth of capabilities offered to its European customers.

"When Plexus opened its first facility in Germany in 2011, we deliberately chose Darmstadt in order to best support customers within our differentiated market sectors in developing highly complex products," said Steve Frisch, executive vice president and COO. "This expansion of our capacity and engineering team, in conjunction with our global footprint, positions Plexus to effectively deliver exceptional engineering and manufacturing services to our customers worldwide."

The Darmstadt Design Center is one of Plexus' eight global, state-of-the-art engineering centers. The Darmstadt Design Center offers engineering expertise in the areas of software, digital and analog hardware, mechanical, industrial design, quality, test development and project management. In total, Plexus’ footprint spans 25 locations worldwide that work seamlessly in the development and production of highly complex products that support demanding regulatory environments.
