AMBiT Projects was founded in 1990 by a group of engineers from the food industry. With a varied background the team were committed to providing solutions to the problems encountered in the production and processing of food.
Since then the company has grown to include project engineers, designers, electrical engineers, fabricators and on-site installation teams.
All AMBiT systems are tailored to meet individual customer needs and requirements and the primary focus is on facilitating and developing production requirements, problem solving and creating tangible benefits for businesses.
An experienced team of designers and project engineers design and manage all projects from concept to installation. AMBiT Projects have always invested heavily in the latest technology and all layouts and manufacturing drawings use the latest in 3D design to bring projects to life before commissioning.
Accredited as a Safe Contractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practice amongst UK contractors, AMBiT have experienced crews to ensure installation and commissioning are carried out safely and to schedule.
