AMC the Focus of Mainebiz Story

UMaine’s Advanced Manufacturing Center (AMC) is the focus of an April 2 story in Mainebiz about how it works with Maine companies such as Newfield Communications, a start-up in West Newfield what saved $50,000 in the last six months with the help of AMC students and faculty. UMaine and the University of Southern Maine have helped businesses in the state bring nearly 400 products and manufacturing processes closer to market, according to the story. “The idea is that anyone can go into our center or USM and say ‘Hey, I need help with this’ and get a quote,” says AMC Director John Belding.
