The construction plant tracking and recovery specialist will be investing in excess of £1 million in additional resource and expertise within the AMI Group.
AMI Group Managing Director Gary Stockton, who founded the firm back in 2004 said: “This development means that we will be able to design new solutions and manufacture our own tracking devices in the UK, using expertise from technological specialists who have many years’ experience of developing products for the likes of the military and defence sectors.
“We already provide several of the UK’s leading plant hirers with plant tracking devices and technology and it is without question that the forthcoming expansion will open the doors to new markets. What we are most excited about is the speed with which we will be able to bring new products to market to fulfil customers’ specific requirements,” he continued.
AMI Group’s vehicle tracking devices are amongst the smallest available and can, according to the manufacturer, be concealed almost anywhere on any asset without being detected by thieves. The new tracking devices currently under development will be six times smaller than the company’s current devices.
The product range includes the AT5, a self-contained, battery operated tracking device which utilises advanced GPS (Global Positioning System), GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) and RF (Radio Frequency) technology and can be covertly installed on plant machinery such as Excavators and Generators. The AT5 has a battery life of up to 20 years which is 30% better than competitive products and utilises highly sensitive assisted GPS positioning which is accurate to within 1 metre.
