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 Robotics' 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.
