The Association for Manufacturing Technology
Ryan works for AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, a non-profit trade group established 115 years ago to strengthen the U.S. industrial base through the application of manufacturing technology. A key challenge in manufacturing is that the pace of technological innovations outpaces industry’s ability to absorb them. To help address this problem, Ryan has established AMT’s first west coast facility in San Francisco, with the goal of increasing the manufacturing industry’s techno-metabolism through educational programs, pilot projects, and stronger ties between the manufacturing and emerging technology communities. He also represents AMT as a founding member of the Onshoring Project, a supply chain consortium whose mission is to facilitate a paradigm shift in sourcing by promoting sounder and more financially beneficial strategies of using lean-performing North American suppliers. Prior to AMT, Ryan held Product, Operations, and Biz Dev roles at MakeTime, and later at Xometry after MakeTime was acquired by Xometry. And before that he worked in consulting, helping major B2B tech OEMs like HP and Xerox create service business to bundle with their hardware.
