Dave of Hutchies said of Sam and the AMA team, “AMA worked well to resolve any issues promptly and always offered up solutions.” Dave continued, “On all of our projects the teams all work well to achieve a common goal.  Any issues that arise are dealt with and if required have input from the top to ensure compliance is reached.  AMA have a solid management structure and therefore ensuring these high standards of compliance were met was not an issue at all”.
