US – US-based robotics company AMP Robotics has opened its new corporate headquarters in Louisville, Colorado.

The new location unites the staff from the company’s previous offices in Louisville and Broomfield, Colorado, in a modern, nearly 84,000-square-foot facility.

Amp says the new facility houses its manufacturing and production operations, where it assembles and ships its AI-guided robotics systems to recycling facilities around the world.

In addition, the company says its new headquarters also contains its research and development (R&D) functions, including an advanced engineering laboratory where it develops, tests and refines AI-powered automation applications for the recovery of recyclable plastics, paper, metals and other materials.

The company says the lab serves as a demonstration center for Amp’s technology, replicating the environments of materials recovery facilities (MRFs) and plastic reclamation facilities to research and continually improve the identification and sortation of recyclable materials.

Amp says its demonstration center allows customers and partners, including brands and packaging producers, to experiment with the latest advancements in AI and robotics to influence material recovery.

Amp Founder and CEO Matanya Horowitz said: “It’s exciting to unify our local employees in this state-of-the-art space, where we’ll incubate new ideas, flex our innovation muscle and manufacture all under one roof.

“We’re so pleased to be building our technology here in Colorado, where the state’s Advanced Industries Accelerator Grant program helped Amp get off the ground, starting with just a few people with a vision for how artificial intelligence could transform recycling.”

Colorado Governor Jared Polis added: “We are excited to celebrate Amp Robotics’ new manufacturing facility here in Louisville, bringing good-paying jobs to Coloradans in addition to the 200 existing jobs for Coloradans, and building upon our work to make recycling easier and more accessible.”

Amp says it employs assembly and installation technicians, reliability engineers, project managers and engineers, field service technicians and supply chain specialists, along with dozens of mechanical, electrical and software engineers.

Since its inception in 2014, the company estimates that its technology has saved nearly 5 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions—an impact equivalent to removing more than 1 million cars from the roads.

“This modern, inclusive and thoughtfully designed space fits the way we work with each other and endeavor to serve our customers—with plenty of opportunity for teamwork and creativity,” concludes Amp Vice President of People Beth Dec.

 “With our corporate headquarters in Colorado, we’re committed to attracting and retaining great Colorado talent to contribute to our mission of enabling a world without waste.”
