Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

See Item 8.01 relating to certain matters concerning Plexus' Chief Operating Officer.

Item 8.01 Other Events.

On January 5, 2007, Plexus Corp. announced that, effective immediately, Paul Ehlers, Chief Operating Officer, will assume a diminished role over the forthcoming months as he deals with a serious medical condition. Until his situation is resolved, Dean Foate, Chief Executive Officer, will re-assume additional broad responsibilities of the Chief Operating Officer role, which he held from 2001 to 2002. Mr. Foate will continue to receive input and support from Mr. Ehlers as his availability during this time allows.

Assumption of these responsibilities will not affect Mr. Foate’s terms of employment, nor will he assume the title of Chief Operating Officer. The Company has put an interim organizational structure in place with certain key leaders in the Plexus organization assuming broader responsibilities to ensure the continuity and growth of the business. Mr. Foate commented, "We are fortunate that Plexus has the bench strength to make these changes without significant disruption to the organization. On behalf of the entire organization, I would like to extend our best wishes and support to Paul."
