Applied Manufacturing Technologies, or AMT, today announced that it has opened a second factory near its headquarters in Orion, Mich. It said the new facility will “empower collaboration and industry innovations” for its industrial automation and robotics customers.
“Thanks to a year of unprecedented growth, AMT has had the opportunity to invest in our future by nearly doubling our production area,” said Michael Jacobs, founder and CEO of Applied Manufacturing Technologies. “We have thoughtfully designed the new facility at 250 Kay Industrial Drive to complement the existing production capabilities at our headquarters, allowing us to better meet the needs of our clients.”
Founded in 1989, AMT said it is an industry leader in automated end-of-line systems, complex material handling systems, and global engineering support. The company claimed that it is “North America's largest independent automation engineering company supporting warehousing and logistics, robot companies, system integrators, line builders, and users of robotic automation worldwide.”
Applied Manufacturing Technologies nearly doubles capacity
The new facility is across the street from Applied Manufacturing Technologies' headquarters at 219 Kay Industrial Drive in Orion, Mich. The expansion brings the total for both facilities to over 51,000 sq. ft., said the company.
The factory is fully air-conditioned and fire-suppressed and offers 23 ft. of vertical clearance, high-quality electrical utilities, and sustainable LED lighting. The “state-of-the-art” facility also boasts a 5-ton overhead crane, said AMT.
The company said it employs more than 120 experienced and highly trained controls and automation engineers with over 1,250 combined years of experience in innovative automation projects across an array of industries. AMT said its engineers, consultants, and programmers can assist customers with projects at any stage of development, from conceptualization and design to troubleshooting and expansion.
In June, Jacobs received the Joseph F. Engelberger Robotics Award for Leadership at Automate 2022.
