Construction plant tracking and recovery specialist AMI Group has announced major expansion plans which will further enhance the company’s development and design capabilities to provide innovative technological solutions in-house.
The firm will be investing in excess of £1 millionin additional resource and expertise within the AMI Group and an official deal will be announced within a matter of weeks.
AMI Group Managing Director Gary Stockton, who founded the firm back in 2004 said: “This is without question the most exciting development for the company since it was first established. It means that we will be able to design new cutting-edge and innovative solutions and manufacture our own tracking devicesin the UK to very high specifications and standards using expertise from technological specialists who have many years’ experience of developing products for the likes of the military and defence sectors.
“We will be able to combine our own expertise, products and service technology with that of our new partners to form a real powerhouse within the plant tracking sector. We already provide several of the UK’s leading plant hirers with plant tracking devices and technology and it is without question that the forthcoming expansion will open the doors to new markets. What we are most excited about is the speed with which we will be able to bring innovative new products to market to fulfil customers’ specific requirements,” he continued.
AMI Group is already an industry-leader when it comes to innovating plant and vehicle tracking devices which are amongst the smallest available and can be concealed almost anywhere on any asset without being detected by thieves.The new tracking devices currently under development will be six times smaller than AMI’s current devices.
The company’s product range includes the AT5, a self-contained, battery operated tracking device which utilises advanced GPS (Global Positioning System), GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) and RF (Radio Frequency) technology and can be covertly installed on plant machinery such as Excavators and Generators. The AT5 has a battery life of up to 20 years which is 30% better than competitive products and utilises highly sensitive assisted GPS positioning which is accurate to within 1 metre.
