Rockwell Automation completes acquisition of Plex Systems

04 October, 2021

Rockwell Automation, Inc. has completed the acquisition of Plex Systems, the cloud-native smart manufacturing platform. Plex offers what is claimed to be the only single-instance, multitenant Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) manufacturing platform operating at scale, including advanced manufacturing execution systems, quality, and supply chain management capabilities.


It has over 700 customers and manages more than 8 billion transactions per day. Plex will be reported as part of Rockwell’s Software and Control operating segment which provides hardware and software offerings for the design, operation and maintenance of production automation and management systems.

“Plex Systems joins Rockwell at the perfect time, as more customers are starting to move their industrial applications to the cloud,” says Blake Moret, chairman and CEO of Rockwell Automation. “Plex’s software capabilities will be further differentiated by Rockwell’s global market access, complementary industry expertise and ability to turn real-time data into actionable insights. This will allow us to better serve our customers with cloud-native solutions that are easy to implement, use, and maintain. We are excited to complete this acquisition and welcome Plex and its employees into Rockwell.”

Bringing smart manufacturing to life

“Rockwell’s industrial and digital transformation leadership along with its geographic and industry scale make it the ideal home for the entire Plex Systems community of customers, partners and employees,” says Bill Berutti, CEO of Plex Systems. “We are eager to integrate our Plex Smart Manufacturing Platform with Rockwell’s FactoryTalk suite to deliver on our commitment to optimise our customers’ operations and bring smart manufacturing to life.”

Plex delivers value to customers in high-volume, highly repetitive discrete and process manufacturing sectors such as automotive parts, metal fabrication, electronics, food & beverage and aerospace. Together with the advanced, cloud-native asset maintenance and management capabilities provided by Rockwell’s earlier acquisiton of Fiix, the combined offering is a good fit for customers in industries such as life sciences and consumer packaged goods that are focused on complying with regulatory requirements and meeting consumer expectations in areas including product quality, safety and sustainability.
