16th June 2015

AFS Ltd, one the UK’s leading independent compressed air systems providers, has today announced their strongest quarter in 20 years.

Following a series of significant new account wins and a successful recruitment campaign, the Manchester-based company is gaining a reputation in the manufacturing sector for providing an unparalleled combination of customer focused service and advanced product specification.

AFS provide compressed air and liquid filtration solutions for some of the UK’s highest profile manufacturers including Heinz, United Biscuits, EDF Energy, Siemens, Philips and JCB, and their growing reputation is seeing an increased number of manufacturing giants turning to their expertise.

Responding to the increasing levels of demand, AFS has bolstered its management team with two high profile appointments, and is currently developing the next generation of engineers and technicians by rolling out an Apprenticeship scheme.

Stewart Maxwell is the new Sales and Service Co-ordinator, while Compressor Engineer Rob Shaw brings his extensive experience to the Trafford Park based company.

Following years of providing energy, drive and commitment, Operations Director Maxine Leach (MBA, Cmgr), who is also driving the new Apprenticeship scheme, is appointed as a Company Director.

Commenting on the impressive quarterly results, Managing Director, Andy Ryan, said: “An increasing number of UK manufacturing companies are turning to AFS because of our expertise and proven reputation for reliability and energy efficiency.”

Andy adds: “As margins become ever more crucial in the manufacturing sector, our bespoke solutions demonstrate clear process cost reductions though sophisticated energy reduction techniques. Our recent series of account wins is a clear sign that what we’re offering is highly valued by our customers.”

Maxine is keen to underline AFS Ltd as a progressive company, saying: “We’ve created a positive and vibrant environment for people to work in and many of our engineers have been with us for over 10 years.”

“Stewart and Rob were drawn to work with us because of our progressive brand, impressive client portfolio and as an environment to grow in. Our new Apprenticeship scheme will offer the chance for people with enthusiasm and drive to join a company that is generating success and employment in the North West.”
