Centor Software Corporation, Foxconn, MatrixOne, Microsoft and Speedline Technologies are the latest companies to join the industry-led consortium. "NEMI attracts organization from across the supply chain, and this latest group of new member companies demonstrates our broad range of appeal," said Jim McElroy, executive director and CEO of NEMI. "Our newest members include a major OEM (Microsoft), a major component module move service (CMMS) provider (Foxconn), two software solution providers (Centor and MatrixOne) and a capital equipment manufacturer (Speedline). Our methodology brings together diverse interests and fosters a collaborative environment that benefits the entire industry.
