This customer disengagement represented a significant challenge for the Company and unfortunately resulted in the loss of jobs in Wisconsin. These jobs were not moved to Plexus locations outside the U.S. but instead were lost from Plexus altogether as the result of the customer’s decision to move its programs to our competitors’ locations outside the U.S. While the significant customer disengagement was a challenging event for us, we have regained many of the jobs that were lost in 2012 and 2013 and are back on a path of growth in Neenah, Wisconsin.

Workers From Kelly Services, Inc., Aerotek and Gold Star Solutions, 
Inc. Neenah, Wisconsin; Notice of Initiation of Investigation To 
Terminate Certification of Eligibility

    Pursuant to section 221 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, an 
investigation was initiated on December 6, 2012 in response to a 
petition for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) filed by the State of 
Wisconsin on behalf of workers of Plexus Corporation, Neenah 
Operations, including on-site leased workers of Kelly Services, Inc., 
Neenah, Wisconsin (Plexus-Neenah). The petition states ``Plexus has 
factories in Malaysia, China, Mexico, and Europe.'' The subject workers 
are engaged in activities related to the production of printed circuit 
boards. During the investigation, the Department received information 
from the subject firm confirming a shift of production by the subject 
firm of an article like or directly competitive with the printed 
circuit boards produced by the workers from Neenah, Wisconsin to a 
foreign country.
    Based on information obtained during the investigation, the 
Department determined that Sections 222(a)(1) and 222(a)(2)(B) of the 
Trade Act of 1974, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a), have been met and 
issued on April 5, 2013 a certification of eligibility to apply for TAA 
applicable to workers and former workers of Plexus-Neenah, which states 
``the workers' firm has shifted to a foreign country the production of 
an article like or directly competitive with the article produced by 
the workers which contributed importantly'' to worker separations at 
Plexus-Neenah.
    On January 29, 2014, the Department issued an amended certification 
of eligibility to apply for TAA applicable to leased workers of Aerotek 
and Gold Star Solutions, Inc. working on-site at Plexus-Neenah.
    In a July 24, 2014 press release (``Plexus Commitment to 
Wisconsin''), Plexus Corporation stated:

    In 2012, Plexus experienced a disruptive event when our largest 
customer at the time, which represented approximately 16% of Plexus' 
global revenue, unexpectedly announced its decision to disengage 
from Plexus. This customer disengagement represented a significant 
challenge for the Company and unfortunately resulted in the loss of 
jobs in Wisconsin. These jobs were not moved to Plexus locations 
outside the U.S. but instead were lost from Plexus altogether as the 
result of the customer's decision to move its programs to our 
competitors' locations outside the U.S. While the significant 
customer disengagement was a challenging event for us, we have 
regained many of the jobs that were lost in 2012 and 2013 and are 
back on a path of growth in Neenah, Wisconsin.

    According to 29 CFR 90.17(a), ``Whenever the Director of the Office 
of Trade Adjustment Assistance has reason to believe, with respect to 
any certification of eligibility, that the total or partial separations 
from a firm or appropriate subdivision thereof are no

[[Page 49815]]

longer attributable to the conditions specified in section 222 of the 
Act and Sec.  90.16(b), the Director shall promptly make an 
investigation.''
    In accordance with 29 CFR 90.17(a), the Department will conduct an 
investigation to determine whether workers and former workers of 
Plexus-Neenah have met the criteria set forth in the Trade Act of 1974, 
as amended, and will issue a determination based on this investigation.
