100 IN 100: Touring Marion and Johnson County Businesses.
Earlier this summer, AMPG, alongside several advanced manufacturing companies in Central Indiana, were visited as a part of 100 Companies in 100 Days tour. The recurring theme that stuck out to them could be summed up in one word: growth.
Fastener manufacturer AMPG shares Nachi’s views on the connection between automation and the growth of its people, but the firm describes the relationship a little differently. During a tour of the AMPG plant on Indianapolis’ northwest side, the firm’s team explained that they also pursue automation as a means for up-skilling their workforce and creating jobs, but they also see this process as a driver of innovation.
This is a view derived from experience. Having promoted several of its team members to leadership roles, AMPG has seen how those team members’ thousands of hours of training on the plant’s equipment helps them identify opportunities for innovation. A recipient of a Conexus Manufacturing Readiness Grants award, AMPG describes a virtuous cycle in which these factors combine to create higher-skilled jobs for current and prospective employees, which the company says is essential in a tight labor market.
