The new low-carbon-footprint building has 28 new and refurbished machines in the showroom, all powered up and fully operational with extraction.

This is a truly professional well-lit modern facility designed to deliver both training courses and demonstrations to its customers.

The facility will also be constantly updated with the lastest technology available in the market.

“Our business has seen tremendous growth over the last few years and this new showroom, training and retail facility is a major investment in our future,” claims Steve McGloin, a director at AMS.

He continues: “We recognise the demands of the market are changing all the time. Customers want a choice, which is why we have just held our third very successful in-house machine festival where over 90 companies have visited over the last 12 months.

“Our new showroom and training facility will reflect this need, with both new and refurbished equipment on display. Also, from our point of view, having money tied up in stock is expensive, consequently, we want to fully utilise the showroom machinery by using it for training purposes as well. We offer training courses every month on different machines and they are always well attended.”

For the training, AMS has extended its association with training company Didac. Over the last five or six years, AMS has developed close ties with Jon Gibson and Didac. Our companies share similar philosophies, so it was a perfect fit for us to develop a partnership with Jon and his team.”

Jon Gibson comments that when the opportunity arose to become part of this exciting new venture with AMS, the company jumped at the chance.

He says: “AMS is centrally located in the UK and therefore ideally suited in terms of it being a convenient place for companies in the Midlands and the North to send staff for training.”

Steve Foster, one of the directors at AMS, summarised that it is good for the industry to have a new modern open-plan facility that has state-of-the-art technology and the staff to operate it.
