Agri Market Insight & Access Ltd has been in operation for 5 years. Alan Dennis is the Managing director. AMIA import and distribute agricultural machinery which they then sell on to Dealerships in the UK and Ireland. The project was identified as part of the businesses growth plan, identifying where they could reduce costs and increase productivity they identified areas that could be improved, including: when machinery arrived in the UK it was often damaged and needed respraying, they were unable to do this in house; and the warehouse was unsuitable to show customers around. the items purchased as part of the grant have enabled they to reduce the costs of respraying externally, and they will be able to use the warehouse as a showroom.
