Cernotec Offers VisualPlant™ Solution

Greenville-based Cernotec LLC now offers its North American customers VisualPlant™ software from
Canada-based Executive Manufacturing Technologies (EMT) Inc. The software enables real-time
analysis of the complete manufacturing process and allows manufacturers to compare current plant
floor activity to previous activity.

“It’s the best technology we’ve seen that can improve total plant efficiency,” said Jason
Premo, executive vice president of marketing and business development, Cernotec. “It builds a
better link to the supply chain and offers almost immediate payback.”
