NEENAH, WI – EMS provider Plexus Corp. reported second-quarter revenue of $451 million, up 20% year-over-year.

The company reported net income of $22.1 million, up almost 54% compared to the same quarter last year.
"Revenue … was flat from the strong first quarter of fiscal 2008. Sequentially, strong performance in our wireline/networking and industrial/commercial sectors offset modest weakness in our medical sector, and a significant $29 million reduction in revenue from our large un-named defense program. Excluding this defense program, revenue grew approximately 5.5% sequentially," said Dean Foate, president and CEO of Plexus.
The company expects third-quarter revenue of $430 million to $450 million.
The company forecasts full year 2008 revenue growth in the range of 16% to 18%.

This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
