How Automation AMA Can Help You with Your Business Needs

Business Development

With over 20+ years running a successful automation firm, we can be a guide for your growth. We begin with an audit of all your operations and then discuss what we believe we can do to help in those areas of need.

Board advisory

Sometimes we all need a sounding board. Let us be there for you to help make some of the hard decisions. While "It's lonely at the top" is a truism, it doesn't have to be. We can not only guide but be a gentle "nudge" when you need that extra push.

Buyer / seller M&A

Considering a sale? Need to work on succession planning.? With multiple acquisitions under our belts we can guide you through the process of preparing for a sale and even introduce you to private equity firms we trust and have vetted.

Operations & Culture

"Process will set you free". But you must first define that process. Engineering, Supply Chain, Manufacturing and Sales all must have defined processes and best practices. Once these are established your margins will begin to soar.

Fractional CXO Role

You may not be ready to hire on a full time C-Suite role but you know you can't do it all yourself. Let us step in and assist you in defining the new role and taking some things off your plate for the fraction of the cost of a full time employee.

Automation Guidance

For manufacturers we will help you define your automation goals, set budgets, write RFQs, connect with reputable providers, analyze and critique the bids and help manage the project to completion.
