Nick HoltOur aim at AMS is to provide information and insights into the processes, technologies and equipment used in vehicle production worldwide.
We do this with original reporting and interviews, by carrying expert articles and papers, with listings of equipment, by profiles of technology/equipment providers, and by hosting videos and webinars, all backed by extensive diagrams and photography. 
All this is categorised by production area (stamping, paintshop, final assembly etc) and by region, as well as of course being fully searchable. And it includes the content of all the issues of AMS magazine and its supplements back to 2007.
The introduction of the fortnightly AMS News gives you an insight into this much bigger range and depth of AMS content. We’ve dramatically extended our online presence in order to deliver it and, while our print magazine is no less important, our new website has a breadth of information which we believe is unrivalled across the whole automotive manufacturing sector. 

Included on the website is the 2014 Directory of equipment and system suppliers, and an archive of free-to-view webinars, the latest from Comau delivered live just last Thursday on the subject of surface preparation techniques for thermal spray coating. 

Over the next two weeks look out for our focus on Nissan’s global manufacturing operations, a review of the production of the latest transmissions, and an in-depth report on welding technologies. Plus news and equipment releases along the way. And join our Linkedin group to connect with fellow automotive production executives.

If you have an application of a new technology, an improvement in a production process, or just a story to tell, do get in touch. We look forward to continuing to serve and connect the global automotive production community.
