Advanced Machine & Engineering

Advanced Machine & Engineering® (AME) was founded in 1966 out of Rockford, Illinois by Willy Goellner—a man of drive and determination who immigrated to America from Germany in 1958. Originally known as Advanced Engineering Co., AME offered design, engineering, and consulting to industries including machine tool, assembly, and packaging out of a small 1,000 square foot office space in Loves Park, Illinois. Relocating to Rockford, Illinois in 1968 expanded the AME footprint to 33,371 square feet, which included a new R&D facility. Shortly thereafter, in 1970, the company was incorporated to increase efficiency in service and guarantee future growth.
