Save your factory: Consortium has alternatives to moving offshore

Applied Manufacturing Technologies has joined the Save Your Factory Initiative, which seeks to maximize North American manufacturing competitiveness and halt the continued erosion of manufacturing jobs to low-wage countries.


Applied Manufacturing Technologies ( AMT )—a supplier of factory automation design, engineering, and process consulting services—has joined the Save Your Factory Initiative , a consortium of automation industry companies committed to providing North American manufacturers with cost-effective and profitable guidance and alternatives to moving manufacturing facilities offshore.
"As North America’s largest independent automation engineering company, our job is to provide our customers with automation solutions that will increase their efficiencies and ROI, and this initiative is one more step toward that end," says Joe Campbell, COO, AMT.
The initiative was formed to maximize North American manufacturing competitiveness and halt the continued erosion of manufacturing jobs to low-wage countries. Its Web site, offers manufacturers access to numerous studies, position papers, articles, tips, and resources to be used to increase manufacturing efficiency without the need to move facilities offshore.
Save Your Factory , founded by FANUC Robotics, touts Automation Alley, American Machinist, Society for Manufacturing Engineers, and many more on its roster.
