AMG Systems, headquartered in the United Kingdom, announced the opening of a new office, manufacturing and warehouse facility in Trumbull, Conn.
The new facility will satisfy the growing demand for AMG transmission products following the company’s recent entry into the U.S. market, according to the announcement. The new office will be the base for North American operations and joins Castleford and Biggleswade in the U.K. as AMG facilities.
AMG Systems offers an extensive line of fiber optic, copper, and wireless Ethernet, video, and data transmission equipment for the security, intelligent transportation systems, utility, and industrial markets.
The new facility will be used for the North American research and product development team, warehouse, shipping operations, professional services, and the Americas AMG tech support and customer care teams. In addition, meeting rooms and training facilities for customers and prospects will be available in the Trumbull offices.
“We knew from our market research that there was a gap in transmission product availability in the U.S.,” said Steve Clarke, AMG managing director. “Due to that overwhelming demand for AMG transmission products, the need to warehouse and ship from a North American location became paramount, and the benefit to AMG North American customers of having AMG products in a stateside location and tech support available at normal business hours is immeasurable.”
Clarke said the company’s initial plan is still to do most of AMG manufacturing in the company’s ISO 9001-certified U.K. facilities and establish sustainable stock levels in the Trumbull facility.
AMG Operations Director Stephen Kummik said the new facility is expected to be fully operational by Sept. 1. “We’re in the process of altering the building to meet our needs and get our inventory control programs in place to efficiently take inventory in and quickly move products out to meet the time requirements of our North American customers,” he added.
