ARCA Named to the 2013 Manufacturing Leadership 100 List

Cash automation provider honored for leadership in the manufacturing sector

MEBANE, NC (Feb 26, 2013) –ARCA, a leading provider of cash automation solutions, recently earned a 2013 Manufacturing Leadership 100 (ML100) Award. The 2013 win is a first for ARCA, which was recognized in the category of information leadership and puts North Carolina based ARCA in the company of some of the world's top manufacturers.

"With our ML 100 Award, we are honored to join this elite group," said Aubrey Meador, president of ARCA. "We're proud of the team that helped us earn this honor and of what we have accomplished to gain this recognition."

Selected by Manufacturing Executive and the Manufacturing Leadership Council, ML 100 Award winners are companies that embrace breakthrough innovation and anticipate and respond to customer needs.

ARCA’s manufacturing leadership project involved the use of Plex’s cloud-based technology to provide better ERP support for its financial departments while helping drive improvements in other functions across its enterprise. Thanks to this initiative, ARCA has improved its access to consistent, accurate, real-time business information that helps employees more effectively and efficiently perform virtually every aspect of the business. Improved quality controls have allowed the company to win and maintain relationships with Fortune 500 companies – doubling its market share since the project was launched.

ARCA and the other ML 100 Award winners will be recognized at a May 15 gala that follows the Manufacturing Leadership Summit.
