History

AMS and ELTA FANS stand together for customers

AMS started trading late in 1994 with Duncan Burl at its helm, funding from the UK based Elta Group and the personal involvement of Ray Ball, chairman of the group. Since then AMS has established itself as a major role player and trendsetter in the air movement industry. By remaining focused on its core business of supplying fans for the domestic market and air conditioning and refrigeration industry and with the expertise and commitment of their staff, AMS gained the faith and trust of their UK principles to invest in building new headquarters for both AMS and Elta Fans in 2000 consisting of 24 offices, a state-of-the-art boardroom, an open plan reception area, a fully functional showroom and more than 2000m2 of warehouse and factory space.

By sharing the multi-million complex, AMS and Elta Fans created a "one-stop air movement shop" with the increased warehouse space and improvement in stock-carrying capacity to ensure greater customer service. A great deal of planning and work study thought has gone into the conceptualization of the new complex. End-user lead time and product quality is of paramount importance and therefore this move has been planned to the nth degree.

Their innovative products eg. the multi-flow variable pitch range, high temperature smoke spill fans, roof unit range to name a few are all locally manufactured or assembled on site thus limiting strategic issues. A low-noise factory workspace has been facilitated through placing the grinding facility in a self-contained, external enclosure. In this day and age it is imperative to ensure that ISO 14000 principles, especially those concerning the enhancement of the working environment, are met by organizations like AMS's.

Derick Truscott, MD of AMS since 1998, states that people may come and go, but buildings will remain a monument to organizations and visionary management. "It has given our staff and customers the message that we are here to stay. Our staff is our biggest asset and they also realize that without the customer there would be no AMS. We are committed to serve and every individual within the company adds value to the organization. Our customers have enabled us to grow and we thank them for that. We shall never forget that our success lies in meeting the customer's needs."
