We’re proud to announce that Durham-based Reprotec Group, a leading surface protection specialist in the North East, has joined the AMF.

John Holmes, managing director at Reprotec said: “As well as providing contracting services and solutions, we manufacture and retail our own range of products, most of which are eco-friendly and perfectly demonstrate our commitment to environmental sustainability. It is very fitting that at this point in our development as a business, we are joining a leading and prestigious voice for manufacturing in the North East region.

“Being a part of the AMF will help us to widen our network across the North East as well as share experiences, knowledge and best practice with our fellow members.”

“Reprotec is renowned for its impressive customer base and reputation as a leading surface protection specialist. I am confident that it will reap the many advantages of AMF membership, and that in return our members will benefit from the company’s specialist expertise and professional insight.”
