They always communicated well, were happy to help and always willing to turn their hand to anything that was thrown at them”.

The contractor explained that as with any contract, there were scope changes, extras added and other such variations. “AMA were always open to changes and operated a quick turnaround on all extras that were asked of them”.

“Not only are AMA easy to deal with, the quality of their products backs that up further. On a project of this size and standard, it is important that all fixtures, fittings and materials used are quality, this cannot be compromised in any area. AMA products are good and sturdy and the quality of both materials and contractors did not disappoint”, the contractor went on to say.

The site team concluded that they would definitely use AMA again on other projects and would have no hesitation in recommending AMA to other industry professionals.
