AM&T works with Soutern Tier manufacturers to develop effective Supply Chain Management (SCM) strategies and best practices. SCM is the blending of art and data that goes into continuously improving the way a business identifies and purchases the raw materials and supplies it needs as it manufactures and delivers products to customers.
Cyber-attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and frequent, with a reported 4,000 attacks on small businesses each day. AM&T works with manufacturers to assess cyber risks in accordance with the NIST 800-171 Standard and can provide assistance with remediation and a letter of compliance.
Ensuring the safety of your people is paramount and has the added benefit of reducing insurance and other related costs. Working with our consulting partner, AM&T can review your current safety system, and bring you up to compliance. We can create an entire safety management system and provide training, or we can provide relief to your safety professionals and act as the interface with 3rd party databases, such as ISNetworld, to keep you on track and moving forward.
R&D Tax Credits
Working with regional experts, AM&T can connect manufacturers to the technical resources required to determine if more money can be added to your bottom line by securing research and development tax credits offered by the United States government. R&D work can be carried out on the shop floor at some facilities or as a technical development office organized more formally, through a dedicated R&D division, at others. Whether performed in the laboratory or on the shop floor.
