We're building the next generation of factories

We're on a mission to build the next generation of factories.
How? By empowering manufacturers to connect, orchestrate, and transform their operations with powerful, intelligent, and accessible products.

Legacy industrial technology is broken. It does not live up to the intensity, volatility, or competition that manufacturers face today.

The vast majority of US factories are small and mid-sized plants with varied equipment  and processes, deepening the disconnect between traditional adoption methods.

This outdated technology is often too complicated, expensive, and unfit for actually day-to-day use.

That’s why clipboards, whiteboards, and Excel still dominate—even with a system like an ERP, MES, or other in place.
Manufacturers deserve better.

We are uprooting traditional and siloed approaches to industrial sensors and software. This means taking a radically different approach that actually serves end users. Amper will be the new tech stack to run manufacturing operations: the first FactoryOS.

To make this vision reality, we are building a place where the most passionate and ambitious team members work with autonomy to create tangible customer impact at scale.

Come join us on this mission.

Born on the factory floor

👋 Hi! Akshat here, CEO of Amper.

As a 4th-generation manufacturer, I grew up immersed in the manufacturing world and passionate about the industry. Seeing up close what it takes to manufacture products like plastic films, abrasive wheels, and auto components created a lifelong commitment to being a part of this field.

I also saw the issues around technology accessibility for manufacturers who weren’t the largest enterprises—not to mention the struggle to run operations without the right software tools. Clipboards, Excel, and clunky software were the only realistic option for my family’s manufacturing business.

So, I started Amper with Philip House to change that. Our vision was a world where every factory can unleash its full potential. Since starting Amper, we have scaled the business from just an idea to a real solution that thousands of manufacturers use every day to run operations.

The exponential advancements in technology tools available—from AI to IoT sensors—has enabled our growth and allowed us to build Amper from the ground up. Everything throughout the process has been designed for adoption and maximum impact.

Amper originally started to replace manual data collection with automated real-time data thanks to our patented technology. Now, Amper goes beyond just machine monitoring. It helps manufacturers orchestrate all the key elements on the shop floor, helping them achieve seamless and predictable operations with ease.

We're proud of the progress we've made over the last few years—but we'll never get complacent. We continuously commit to evolving with and for manufacturers, and we can't wait for you to see where we go from here.

Our core values

Obsess over our customers’ success

Our customers are at the heart of everything we do. We celebrate them. We take care of them. We maximize our impact on their business to create long-term and sustainable value.

Embrace reality

We get to the truth and then we embrace it. We stay grounded in the facts. We solve problems with data—and by going towards the pain. We don’t avoid it.

Build for the long term

We work hard to be the best version of ourselves. Each person is committed to raising the standard through their contributions to the team.

Insist on the highest standards

We invest in compounding and sustainable systems that can easily be iterated on and made to last. Success is a process, not a destination—and we document every step.

Encourage extreme ownership and a bias for action

We hold ourselves accountable for the outcomes and consequences of our actions. We take action to solve problems and don’t wait for consensus.

Be lean

We always strive to accomplish more with less. We celebrate that constraints engender resourcefulness, self-sufficiency, and invention.
