“To be a socially responsible supplier of instrumentation and control products and services, with a focus on simplifying solutions”
“We aim to solve the needs of customers who wish to improve their efficiency, safety and environmental impact.”
The aim of AMS-IAC is to become a sustainable business in the true sense of the term. Our strategies are developed to be part of a complete circular economy, with the intention to give back as much or more than we take and ensure we consider the wider community and ecology as well as our direct effects when making decisions.
As part of this strategic thinking we have rebranded and changed our offering to focus on simplifying the selection of instrumentation and control products and services for applications that help businesses improve their environmental impacts, process efficiencies and personnel’s safety.
Our customer approach is to solve specific needs and provide a customer with a sense of value for their investment. We don’t promote needless latest product specifications, we offer flexible solutions, from a complete turnkey supply to individual component upgrades to existing systems, whichever route best fits the need, encouraging the use of, or refurbishment of existing equipment where no substantial benefit to change can be found.
Our sustainability page highlights some of the decisions we have made and initiatives implemented that have been influenced by this approach.
AMS Instrumentation and Control Ltd (AMS-IAC) was set up as the product manufacturing division of AM Sensors Ltd (AMS) a specialist instrumentation and control engineering business which was founded in 2009.
Formed in 2008, AMS-IAC purchased a range of mechanical level, flow and valve products from Meggitt plc which were previously designed and manufactured by Alan Cobham Engineering in Blandford, Dorset and for 10 years AMS-IAC continued to manufacture from the Blandford area.
These high quality engineered products have been supplied for over 50 years and have gone through rigorous approvals from many high-end multinational organisations including The MoD, Shell, Esso, Texaco, British Rail, British Coal, Alstom, Bombardier, British Energy (now EDF) and BNFL.
In 2018 we increased the range of products we manufacture and resale to include a wider range of mechanical and electronic level products, whilst adding alarm and control panels to support our instrumentation and valve products to enable us to offer a turnkey solution for liquid or solids level, pressure and flow control.
To coincide with a refocussing of AM Sensors business that is based in Somerset, in 2019 we moved into a BREEAM sustainability assessed premises in Cornwall and achieved separate ISO9001 and ISO14001 approvals to allow AMS-IAC to begin to deal directly with its customers and take oversupply of the traditional AM Sensors industrial product business.
