About AMI. Advanced Manufacturing International, Inc. (AMI) was launched in August of 2020 as a non-profit organization with a clear mission – to accelerate the digital transformation of small and medium manufacturers. At AMI, our goal is to enable small to medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs) everywhere to collaborate, innovate, and thrive. Many large organizations are rapidly adopting smart manufacturing solutions to reduce costs, increase throughput and open new markets. While SMMs, have the expertise and the desire to do the same, they often lack the time and money to develop or procure these emerging digital solutions in a way that quickly creates value for their business. AMI was created to bridge that gap with innovative low-cost solutions appropriate for smaller companies at any phase of their digital journey.
