Founded on a Vision

Alberto Mendez Sr. started AMG in his garage in 1980 and soon added a small team of designers, all committed to providing a new level of service to clients. AMG was founded on a vision of providing hands-on, client-focused design and engineering services to processing plants and facilities in the food and feed ingredients industry. Still today, the team embraces a hands-on, practical approach to projects while also leveraging leading edge technology, client collaboration approaches, and the development of new and better techniques to deliver more successful projects, and an improved project experience for our clients.
