About Us

Advanced Machine Design Company was founded in 1972 and originally began manufacturing our own patented hydraulic bar and billet shears. AMD quickly became known for robust machinery and exceptional customer service. As a result, key customers started requesting that AMD provide them hydraulic presses built on the same principles as the shears. Since then, we have supplied hydraulic presses, shears, and material handling to a variety of industries. It is likely that if you have driven a vehicle, boarded an airplane, or taken another form public transportation, we played a part in your travel. AMD has provided presses and shears for these industries and others that touch our everyday lives at home, at work, or in leisure.
