Software firm Plex Systems hires 54, to add 40 more jobs

Last year was a record one for Plex Systems, which notched 27 percent revenue growth on 37 new customers and the addition of 54 new employees at the manufacturing software firm.

"We have the right product at the right time," says Mark Symonds, CEO of Plex Systems. "And our pricing model is quite popular now."

Plex Systems provides software for a number of manufacturing sectors, including food processing, medical devices, automotive, aerospace/defense, industrial and consumer products in Europe, Asia and North America. The Auburn Hills-based company is capitalizing the most on its new software as a service model for its services. Sales for its SaaS subscriptions are up 26 percent in the last year.

The company has a staff of 175 employees and a few co-op students. All but about a dozen of them are based in Auburn Hills. It plans to hire another 40 people in 2011 as the company ramps up marketing efforts to produce more lead generation.

Symonds sees a sizable opportunity for growth in the food-and-beverage industry because of the new federal food safety laws.
