sessed risks and developed con- tingency plans involving alter- nate materials and fast-ramp manufacturing once factories re- opened. In the healthcare and medical device sector, in particu- lar, the organizations tur- bocharged responses to escalat- ing demands for lifesaving and personal protective equipment. For example, Molex helped


Jabil respond to a ventilator manufacturer’s dramatic volume increase while addressing a dire need for parts on a legacy prod- uct. In rapid-fire fashion, Molex secured alternative sources for materials and then used its engi- neering prowess to identify new components within more recent technologies. “Molex reacted ex- tremely quickly,” says Scott. “They provided us with pri-


ority once facilities came back online while ensuring we had the components needed to build the ventilators.” As a result, Molex significantly scaled ventilator component production from a purchase order history of around 2,000 parts yearly to 20,000 parts in as little as six days. A week later, Molex deliv-


ered another 16,000 pieces to support this extremely impor- tant product build. “I just can’t thank the Molex team enough for their unprecedented speed of ur- gency,” says McKay. “They react- ed in a way that gave us and the customer confidence we could meet the need as quickly and ef- ficiently as possible.”


Culture of Collaboration At the core of the Jabil-


Molex relationship is a culture of collaboration that resonates at every level of both organizations. A mutual commitment to cus- tomers and employees is rein- forced by U.S. midwestern roots, which inform each company’s core values and go-to-market philosophies. “Jabil and Molex have a clear, true North Star,” McKay says. “It’s part of our shared DNA and culture, that extends to C-Suite engagement. We have a trusted relationship.” Cultural synergy also en-


ables each organization to share common objectives. “What we like best about working with Jabil is they understand a partnership goes both ways,” Whicker notes. “With all of our projects, we want to find mutual benefit that creates value for our end-customers.” A recent example of this


teamwork in action involved Jabil and Molex redesigning a connec- tor cable to reduce lead times. “We ended up replacing a couple of components that enabled us to process things faster,” adds Whicker. “In turn, this helped Jabil introduce it into their opera- tions faster, which produced a better solution in less time.” Jabil and Molex are posi-


tioned to build on their combined successes, bolstered by the right investments at the right time. “We will continue to lift up each other and be better for our cus- tomers,” concludes McKay. “We’re dealing with mass disruption and global trade challenges. When you put all that together, it comes down to correct alignment of peo- ple, processes and technologies. Jabil and Molex will continue to do a great job of working together today and into the future.” Contact: Jabil, Inc., 10560
