The AMTEC Team
We are committed to the constant pursuit of excellence and strive for continuous improvement in high-volume product quality and operational efficiency. The AMTEC team is set apart from our competitors for the following reasons:
- Competent staff! AMTEC has a wonderful mix of wise veterans that have been in the defense business for many years along with younger personnel with fresh ideas. We successfully combine intelligence, a positive work ethic, and an attitude that is completely customer driven to deliver a quality product on-time, every time.
- State-of-the-art facilities! AMTEC’s facilities and equipment were established for the specific purpose of producing tactical and training ammunition, fuzing, and firing devices. We design and build our own high-volume, precision, automatic manufacturing machines, tooling, and test equipment.
- Team approach! Our vendors are our teammates in the manufacture of our products. We succeed and fail together. One component defect can shut down a program, so high-quality, conforming components on time are paramount to successful program performance. The pursuit of excellence begins at our vendors' plants.
- Responsive! As a small business, AMTEC’s organizational structure is lean. Our senior management team is on site and involved with day-to-day decisions. Our customers’ requests and queries are dealt with timely and efficiently.
