We are experts at anticipating what our clients need

All our systems are designed to be modular, flexible and future-proof.  Ours is a knowledge based industry and our industry knowledge is second to none.  Fundamentally our role is to provide Plant Operators, Supervisors, Engineers and Management personnel with the graphics, data and reports they need to run their machine, factory or enterprise safely whilst maximising efficiency, helping to increase productivity and decreasing operating costs. To say this is easy, to deliver this requires a broad range of skills, Amber Programmable Design has them.

Our philosophy is to give every customer a system which works and that they can build complete confidence in. If they then choose, we can help our customers to evolve their system and expand its capabilities over a period of time.

We provide turnkey packages of the highest quality

Using the latest design tools and techniques alongside our years of practical experience, we will design a control panel from conception adhering to the latest regulations, build that panel in our manufacturing workshops, install and commission it,  then train our clients and maintain the product.  From start to finish and for years to come.  Our priority on any project is providing our clients with exceptional levels of service and a complete technical solution. 

We are safe

Our Safety record is second to none. Every day we are working in some of the most dangerous environments. We ensure all staff are fully trained and able to carry out the procedures required in every task they undertake. Doing this has earned us a long-standing reputation with our clients as a company who takes safety seriously and can be relied upon for the most delicate of tasks.
