AMP Robotics

AMP Robotics™ is an industrial artificial intelligence and robotics company that is changing the economics of material recovery and recycling.

AMP Robotics™ is transforming the economics of recycling using guided robotics.

AMP Robotics was founded in 2015 by James Bailey, & Matanya Horowitz. The company is headquartered in Louisville, Colorado.

AMP’s breakthrough technology automates the identification, sorting, and processing of material streams to extract maximum value for material recovery facilities (MRFs) that process municipal solid waste, construction and demolition, e-waste, and auto-shredding.

AMP' high-speed robotics system, AMP Cortex™, precisely automates the identification, sorting and processing of material streams to extract maximum value for businesses that recycle municipal solid waste, e-waste, and construction and demolition materials.


The AMP Neuron™ AI platform operates AMP Cortex using advanced computer vision and machine learning to continuously train itself by processing millions of material images and adapting to changes in a facility’s material stream. And The AMP Insights™ web-based data management system digitizes the material stream, providing insights and important alerts to operators so they can optimize their business even further.


AMP platform had processed over a billion recyclables across installations in over 20 states, which the company claims translates to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of approximately half a million metric tons.


AMP is backed by Sequoia Capital, Valor Equity Partners, GV, XN, Sidewalk Infrastructure Partners (SIP), Congruent Ventures and others. The company raised $55M in Series B round on Jan 04, 2021. This brings AMP's total funding to $76.3M to date.
