LONDON - November 4, 2010 - AMX, the leading provider of unified control and automation solutions, has announced the opening of a state-of-the-art production and warehousing operation, near to its European head office in York. The impressive facility not only enables AMX to meet the ever-growing demand for its award-winning range of products and services, but ideally positions the company for growth in the years ahead.
Part of AMX's continued expansion, the purpose-built facility will house the manufacturing, warehousing and repair processes previously undertaken in Norwich. Head of Production Andy Grant will oversee the manufacture of key products from the AMX range, including Novara keypads and AMX Solecis switchers and distribution amplifiers, as well as the assembly of the modular Autopatch switching products.

Explains Andy Grant. "This expansion is part of a continued investment in our products and services and reaffirms our position as a leading manufacturer and supplier to the industry."
At 10,000 sq.ft, the new operation increases the company's European production capacity significantly. Andy Grant will be joined at the new building by key AMX personnel from Norwich and a raft of new recruits.
