low-cost smart manufacturing solutions
to compete and succeed in the global economy.
Advanced Manufacturing International, Inc. (AMI) was launched in August of 2020 as a nonprofit organization with a clear mission – to accelerate the digital transformation of small and medium manufacturers. At AMI, the goal is to enable small to medium-sized manufacturers everywhere collaborate, innovate, and thrive. Many large organizations are rapidly adopting smart manufacturing solutions to reduce costs, increase throughput and open new markets. And while Small-to-Medium Manufacturers (SMMs), have the smarts 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.

AMI is led by industry veterans with decades of experience in delivering production level digital solutions to manufacturing. We believe our experience, our broad network of manufacturers, solution vendors, and academia – along with our targeted focus on SMMs – is a powerful combination to help your company benefit from smart manufacturing without breaking the bank.
At AMI, our experience tells us that SMMs should drive the process and content to make this industry led and industry focused. The ecosystem is designed for SMMs to share, collaborate and learn, and we want to be your “go to” partner for your digital transformation.

Our Global View
As 98% of manufacturers in the United States employ less than 500 people, we recognize how important small and medium manufacturers are to our manufacturing base and our overall economy. We also recognize that in a global economy, supply chains and opportunities have no borders. Everyone benefits everywhere from a resilient and interconnected ecosystem of manufacturers, and a low-cost digital thread is vital to the value chain.
