Connex Florida – Florida’s Supply Chain Solution

Connex Florida is an online capabilities database and connection platform created for Florida manufacturers. Connex helps your company adapt to changing market demands, connect to an array of resources and locate new business opportunities by identifying new suppliers and customers.

Florida-Focused Resources

Connex gives manufacturers immediate access to information about potential suppliers and customers within Florida, with results filtered to match your company’s specific needs.

Network with Over 8,000 Manufacturers

This online database serves to streamline critical connections between Florida manufacturers and businesses in need of their products. The platform helps to identify “Made in Florida” and “Made in USA” resources, as well as industry-specific capabilities, certifications, and small business designations. Manufacturers can post or browse information about specific sourcing needs or strengthen weak points in their current supply chain.

Industry-Specific Sourcing

Connex Florida allows manufacturers to connect, find alternate suppliers, explore production capabilities and view their supply chain visually. Just as important, it also helps manufacturers identify single-supplier risks and find opportunities for diversification in their supply chain.

No Cost

Connex Florida is free to manufacturers and those performing manufacturing research and development in Florida.
