The AMS Difference

What differentiates AMS from our competitors is the limitation of our exposure. This provides AMS the platform to offer you the highest quality components with on-time delivery and a competitive price while still providing exceptional customer service.


Advanced Manufacturing Solutions was founded in 2010 by Robert and Carolyn Johannessen. Originally intended to be a small job-shop, due to increased customer demands and satisfaction, our shop and services have more than doubled since inception. AMS prides itself on continual innovation, collaborative relationships with our customers, and exceptional customer service.
