Following the highly successful launch of its commercial office in Shanghai in 2011, AMCO’s Far East presence has evolved into the Chinese Hub. Through the hub, AMCO is supplying integrated procurement & sourcing, warehousing and logistics services, offering cost-effective production, storage and supply.
“Our multi-lingual Chinese Hub team comprehensively supports many well-known international manufacturing businesses. Managing the whole process on their behalf, we are able to ensure the quality, consistency and regularity of supply of key components. Feedback from customers is excellent – they find it highly effective to outsource these services, which reduces costs and problems for internal staff, whilst increasing the quality of the supply chain. It really is a winning formula,” says Brendan Pickering, AMCO’s International Shipping Manager.
The service offered by AMCO’s centres in the UK and China is particularly effective for European automotive and aerospace clients who may be manufacturing in China, but need to control the security, quality and supply management of materials and parts. As a holder of key licences allowing the transport of raw materials such as plastic resins into China, AMCO is a preferred supplier for many OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), first and second tier suppliers and manufacturers such as BMW.
“Through extensive experience, our teams have become expert in this field,” continues Brendan. “Along with complete supply chain solutions, we offer consultancy and advice, which most importantly, is independent of manufacturers. We believe this is an invaluable service for businesses seeking to manufacture in China.”
With over 30 successful years in business, the company continues to expand its UK and international operations, adding to its distinctive fleet of red and black liveried vehicles and extensive new warehousing opening on two sites in Worcestershire. “With the Chinese Hub, our new warehousing capacity and packaging service, we are really offering the complete logistics service,” concluded Brendan.
