Advanced Manufacturing Center, Ecoshel Partnership Mentioned in Mainebiz Article

A partnership between the University of Maine’s Advanced Manufacturing Center (AMC) and Aroostook County-based company Ecoshel was mentioned in a Mainebiz article about a grassroots effort to advance the forest products sector and job creation in Aroostook County. Aroostook Partnership for Progress, a public-private organization created to spur economic development in Maine’s northernmost county, is leading the effort, according to the article. Ecoshel, a cedar shingle maker, relocated from Georgia and opened a mill in Ashland using a new high-tech assembly line developed by the AMC, the article states. The new process can produce a shingle every second.
