Cloud manufacturing software provider Plex Systems has acquired manufacturing process automation specialist Kors Engineering. By acquiring Kors and its product, Mach2, Plex aims to extend its solutions to the plant edge.

According to Plex, the acquisition allows its platform to connect the full enterprise and provide a smart  manufacturing environment that aligns with Industry 4.0.

“As a long time Plex partner, Kors is a natural fit for our smart manufacturing strategy. With Mach2, Kors drives plant-floor connectivity, production dashboards and process automation for hundreds of Plex-powered plants today,” said Bill Berutti, CEO of Plex. “The combined solution extends the power of the Plex Smart Manufacturing Platform, giving manufacturers what they are constantly striving for: greater control and continuous improvement to deliver on their customer promises faster and more efficiently.”

“Kors Mach2 is a flexible, low-code plant connectivity solution that shares data between machines and Plex to streamline data entry, setups and processes, and provides real-time dashboards that give manufacturers total visibility. With hundreds of successful plant implementations, the acquisition is a win-win for manufacturers looking for a proven solution to deliver immediate value,”  said Tony Kaczmarek, Kors President and owner.
