Advanced Manufacturing Hub for Michigan (AMHUB)

The Advanced Manufacturing Hub (AMHUB) for Michigan is a multi-stakeholder collaborative ecosystem focused on positioning Michigan as a global leader for advanced manufacturing, established jointly by Automation Alley and the World Economic Forum, which runs the Global AMHUB Network.

What is AMHUB?

AMHUB is based at Automation Alley’s headquarters in Troy, Mich. and will be connected globally through the World Economic Forum, the Switzerland-based international organization for public-private cooperation that engages the foremost political, business and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.

Why it Matters.

The World Economic Forum has recognized that Michigan has maintained the highest level of engineering talent post-recession relative to other states and, through recent collaborations, has consistently witnessed a shared engagement among manufacturers on matters of critical importance to Michigan’s future manufacturing leadership.

Michigan has an innovative spirit that defined the state’s manufacturing industry for decades. However, while numerous Michigan manufacturers have taken steps to adopt smart technologies on their factory floors, no one company, organization or entity can single-handedly create an environment to ensure its future position as a global leader. Partnerships between players throughout industries and sectors drive innovation. As technology increasingly disrupts existing industries and creates new products, services and business models, the AMHUB Network will be critical to ensure that favorable policies and investments are in place to support advanced manufacturing.

How to Join.

AMHUB convenes leading stakeholders from government, academia and Michigan’s technology and manufacturing corporations, small- and medium-sized businesses and startups with defined goals and measurable outcomes to ensure the state is prepared for the rapid innovations of Industry 4.0. Activities will include community building, knowledge exchange and driving action.
