Maintenance specialist AMH Material Handling has been awarded another three-year contract for the maintenance of all material handling machinery at Asda’s George clothing warehouses.
The Halesowen company – which also has a site in north Staffordshire – will take responsibility for the maintenance of equipment at Asda’s warehouses at Lymedale in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Brackmills in Northampton, North East Clothing near Sunderland and Wynyard in County Durham.
Maintenance engineers will be stationed at each site to deliver 24-hour support, 365 days a year, for AMH’s own installations and other equipment installed at the site.
The contract win follows a six-month review by the Asda Logistics Services team.
AMH was awarded the contract after “demonstrating its existing and future value, its proven track record of health and safety and legislative compliance, and its impressive performance in continually exceeding expectations.”
Jon Parry, vice president of Asda Logistics Services, said: “The AMH Material Handling team has been engaged with Asda since 2008, and has over 60 years of combined senior management experience.
“AMH Material Handling work as an extension of our team; their people are embedded and aligned with Asda’s way of working. They support us strategically, from concept and design through to delivery, whether in ‘business as usual’ or project integration.
“Working collaboratively with our partners this way gives both parties excellent opportunities to strengthen commercial relationships in and around Asda Logistics Services. In turn, this supports technological and commercial growth and diversity in the business.”
