Firm expands and takes on extra workers

A CRAMLINGTON firm has taken on new staff as it continues its expansion.

AMS Asbestos Management Services has moved to new 2,799 sq ft office space in the town, and has opened two new offices in Doncaster and Warrington.

The firm hsa also recruited 13 new employees across all three locations – including five in Cramlington.

The asbestos management specialist has moved its headquarters from Crosland Park in Cramlington to an office some three times the size at nearby Atley Business Park.

With the move comes the recruitment of an additional five members of staff, including a surveyor and a lab technician, taking the total number of employees at the Cramlington head office to 15.

Managing director at AMS, Stewart McNicholl, said: “It’s exciting times for AMS and a brilliant start to 2013.

“While the opening of these new offices is a significant investment for AMS, we have made the move with confidence about the future as demand for our services continues to grow.

“Our north east office has bespoke lab facilities to house our ever increasing team of technicians. 

“What it means is better support for clients and further improved service levels, as the ability to carry out asbestos analysis locally means a faster and more efficient turnaround of results.”
