AMP Robotics Establishes New Headquarters in Louisville
AMP Robotics Corp. (“AMP”), a pioneer in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and infrastructure for the waste and recycling industry, has opened its new headquarters in Louisville. Located at 1875 Taylor Avenue, the office unites staff from former AMP sites in Louisville and Broomfield in a modern facility of nearly 84,000 square feet.
The new facility houses the company’s manufacturing and production operations, where AMP assembles and ships its AI-guided robotic systems to recycling facilities around the world. AMP’s domestic manufacturing operations ensure the company is well positioned to meet the demand for robotics to modernize existing recycling infrastructure, with short lead times and minimal exposure to supply chain disruptions. supply.
AMP’s new headquarters also contains its R&D functions, including a state-of-the-art engineering lab, where the company develops, tests and refines AI-powered automation applications for the recovery of plastics, papers , metals and other recyclable materials. The lab serves as a demonstration center for AMP’s technology, replicating the environments of material recovery facilities and plastic recovery facilities to research and continually improve the identification and sorting of recyclable materials. AMP’s Demo Center allows customers and partners, including brands and packaging producers, to experience the latest advances in AI and robotics to influence material recovery.
“It’s exciting to bring our local employees together in this state-of-the-art space, where we will incubate new ideas, develop our innovative strength and manufacture, all under one roof,” said Matanya Horowitz, Founder and CEO of AMP. Robotics. “We’re excited to grow our technology here in Colorado, where the state’s Advanced Industries Accelerator Grant program helped get AMP off the ground, starting with a few people with a vision for how artificial intelligence could Transforming Recycling We view our trip as an example of what is possible in the state.
“We are thrilled to celebrate AMP Robotics’ new manufacturing facility here in Louisville, bringing well-paying jobs to Coloradans in addition to the 200 existing jobs for Coloradans, and building on our work to make recycling easier and more accessible,” the Colorado governor said. Jared Polis.
The opening of this new facility reflects AMP’s rapid growth since Horowitz, a Colorado native and University of Colorado Boulder graduate, founded the company in 2014. Starting with the early support of the National Science Foundation and Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) and progression to venture capital funding – most recently a Series C funding led by Congruent Ventures and Wellington Management – AMP ranks among the most successful tech startups of State.
“This modern, inclusive and thoughtfully designed space aligns with how we work with each other and strive to serve our customers, with plenty of opportunities for teamwork and creativity,” added Beth Dec, vice president of human resources for AMP. “With our headquarters in Colorado, we are committed to attracting and retaining great Colorado talent to contribute to our mission of enabling a waste-free world.”
“AMP Robotics is a wonderful contributor to Louisville’s vibrant and diverse business community,” said Mayor Ashley Stolzmann. “The mission of this innovative company is to enable a world without waste. We are proud that AMP Robotics has chosen to continue to grow in Louisville as the company strives to create a more sustainable future.
AMP employs assembly and installation technicians, reliability engineers, project managers and engineers, field service technicians and supply chain specialists, as well as dozens of engineers in mechanics, electricity and software. Since its inception, AMP’s technology has saved approximately five million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, an impact equivalent to removing more than one million cars from the roads.
About AMP Robotics™ Corp.
AMP Robotics is modernizing the global recycling infrastructure by applying AI and automation to increase recycling rates and economically reclaim recovered recyclables as raw materials for the global supply chain. The AMP Cortex™ high-speed robotic system automates the identification and sorting of recyclable materials from mixed material streams. The AMP Neuron™ AI platform continuously trains itself by recognizing different colors, textures, shapes, sizes, patterns, and even branded labels to identify materials and their recyclability. Neuron then guides robots to select and place the material to be recycled. Designed to operate 24/7, all of this happens at superhuman speed with extremely high precision. AMP Clarity™ provides data and material characterization on captured and missed recyclables, helping recyclers and producers maximize recovery. With deployments in North America, Asia and Europe, AMP’s technology recovers recyclables from municipal collection, valuable products from electronic waste, high-value materials from construction and demolition debris and precious raw organic materials.
