Commitment to the Environment

At AMS we are always committed to producing systems that are sustainable, high performing with long design life therefore minimising impact on the environment. Aluminium, as a metal, is infinitely recyclable and only 5% of the energy used in producing new aluminium, is used in the recycling process. AMS is committed to recycling 100% of the off-cut aluminium produced during production. In 2012, AMS undertook on a project to establish an Energy Management System to control and reduce all forms of energy usage on-site. This resulted in obtaining certification to the ISO 50001:2011 standard. Certification to this standard was achieved in July 2013and this, working in tandem with our Environmental Management System, further our impact on the environment.

Furthermore, with our state of the art vertical paint line having a 90% recovery rate of powder and our Environmental Management System being certified to ISO 14001:2004,prides ourselves to being fully committed to an environment friendly, sustainable and long lived future.
