4 PRESIDENT'S LETTER 2017 – 2018 AMT is proud to present the 2018 MTBuyers Guide . Please use this book as a resource for exploring what's new in manufacturing technology, distribution and service to improve your business and increase your competitiveness. By harnessing the power of digital connectivity and artificial intelligence, we are at dawn of a new era in manufacturing, accessible to almost anybody with a computer and access to the internet. By employing technologies like advanced automation, the Internet of Things, machine learning, additive manufacturing, and real-time data and analytics, manufacturers are improving productivity, opening doors to new sales opportunities, and developing customer relationships. Every part of your business and every link in the supply chain— from design to operations to marketing, sales, and service—are impacted by this new landscape. The time is now for evaluating how your equipment and processes can be modernized with technology. You can begin with the MTBuyers Guide of products and services for builders, distributors and suppliers. It gives a picture of how companies are responding to the digital age with more data-driven, customer-centric products and services. AMT members are designated with the AMT swirl for their commitment to driving our industry forward. This is an exciting time to be a manufacturer. There are few limits to what you can do and where you can do it with the right mix of tools and creative minds. I urge you to continue to build on the innovation and entrepreneurial spirit that defines American manufacturing; use the technology at your disposal to grow your business. On behalf of AMT, I wish you continued success and hope to see you at IMTS2018. Sincerely, Doug Woods
