REDSTONE ARSENAL, AL - March 23, 2011 - The U.S. Army Materiel Command was designated the Army's Lead Materiel Integrator March 22, 2011.

Secretary of the Army John M. McHugh designated AMC as the Lead Materiel Integrator based on the need for a new approach to materiel management Army-wide.

"The Army's new approach for managing materiel is being designed to effectively and efficiently distribute and redistribute materiel to support the generation of trained and ready forces," McHugh said in a March 22 memorandum. "It must represent a different way of doing business that will foster open communication, improve collaboration and eliminate redundancies in the process."

As the LMI, AMC has the mission to synchronize the distribution and redistribution of Army materiel. This designation will assist the Army in adapting policies on materiel distribution/redistribution to better meet the global demands of our Army.
