Ambic is quite unique in the education furniture supply business as we manufacture & supply all of our products; the company has grown by fully supplying the complete needs of a significant number of schools in a limited geographical area working directly with the staff and other contractors.
The 22% expansion per year for every year has been achieved entirely by personal recommendation from customer to customer.
This has been realised by having a complete manufacturing system in house able to handle every facet of the production process thus controlling quality and manufacturing timescale.
The facility is now a state of the art fully integrated production unit utilising the latest technology and CNC controlled manufacturing methods.
The factory is fully integrated with the raw materials of wood, metal, plastics, paint, fasteners etc. delivered to the northern end and fully finished furniture being loaded at the southern end either as fully assembled products or as pre-prepared kits for assembly onsite by our teams or by contractors under our supervision to maintain quality.
There are separate departments for;
Wood Machining – To cut, drill, laminate, shape and sand the wood sheets and laminates into furniture panels and components.
Polishing – To sand, stain and varnish these panels and components into fully finished items ready for assembly. This department also produces the ‘Ambic signature’ polished waterproof edges.
Welding – This shop uses lengths of steel tube which are cut and welded into substantial frames for furniture items, tables and desks. This department has the latest CNC tube bending machines to produce the smooth rounded furniture without sharp corners necessary within schools.
Sheet Metalwork – Using flat sheets of steel guillotined, formed and fabricated into metal components used in the manufacture and assembly of furniture and incorporated to improve the strength and rigidity of Ambic furniture not found in lesser quality suppliers.
Powder Coating & Painting – Used to produce a hard wearing durable finish which compliments the high standards maintained in the products of the company. As this facility is in house the process enables a more rapid delivery schedule and allows the company to maintain its quality standards.
Precision Engineering & Tool Making – Supports the factory manufacturing equipment and produces bespoke precision components.
Assembly area with installation teams – All Ambic furniture is delivered fully assembled either in the factory or on site by our site fitting teams where fitted furniture has been specified. This department is supported by our fleet of 10 vehicles covering England, Scotland, and Wales.
