LAS VEGAS, January 8, 2019 – Drawing on its broad multi-industry perspective, Flex has created an immersive experience showing how it helps customers develop and distribute next-generation electronics in a time of rapid technological change. Flex engages with customers across diverse technology fields including smart living, automotive, mobility and healthcare to conceptualize, design, build, deliver and manage technically advanced solutions at scale.

“At CES this year, Flex will demonstrate new ways of understanding and experiencing smart technology – from the way products are manufactured in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, to how they are utilized and connected,” said Doug Britt, president of Integrated Solutions at Flex. “Heightened customer expectations are being driven by the emerging benefits of 5G and Artificial Intelligence (AI), pushing companies to incorporate new technologies in their products.”

“Connected IoT ecosystems and AI advancements are bringing new capabilities to traditional product categories,” said Paul Humphries, president of High-Reliability Solutions at Flex. “From automotive manufacturers to communications providers, companies from all industries must engineer intelligence into their products, and be ready to deploy at a regional or global scale to meet consumer demands.”

The Flex CES showcase will include specific emphasis on:
