AMF welcomes new preferred supplier, Synergy

The Advanced Manufacturing Forum (AMF) is proud to welcome business transformation specialist, Synergy, as a preferred supplier.

AMF member Synergy offers a range of tailored solutions to engineering and manufacturing organisations, in the energy, utilities and automotive sectors. Services include: UKAS accredited quality management; health, safety and environment services; risk assessment; and project/change management.

As a preferred supplier for risk management, Synergy will host a quarterly forum for AMF members. Centred upon compliance in QHSE, the forum will offer insight into the important health and safety regulations that affect all manufacturers, helping AMF members navigate the complex legislations.

Barry Cooper, Managing Director at Synergy and AMF board member, said of the partnership: “Having been a proud member of the AMF for some time, I am thrilled that Synergy has been appointed as a preferred supplier. Our team has a vast amount of industry knowledge and experience which, as I feel it can provide great benefit, I wanted to share with AMF members. I look forward to working with fellow members to encourage the growth of the North East manufacturing industry.

“I am truly excited to launch our new AMF Forum. We are currently liaising with the HLA to plan our inaugural event and I strongly encourage AMF members to keep an eye out for more information which we will issue in due course.”

Jack Hanwell, AMF manufacturing sector development manager, said: “As the voice of manufacturing in the North East of England, we encourage knowledge sharing within the sector. Synergy’s reputation for providing superior solutions is second to none and I am therefore delighted to welcome them as a preferred supplier.

“From the beginning Synergy has demonstrated a willingness to share their specialist expertise with us. I am confident the company’s professional insights will prove invaluable to our members and I am looking forward to working together to launch their new forum.”

Synergy will be joining a multi-discipline range of preferred suppliers, from B2B marketing specialist Horizonworks to the likes of law firm, Ward Hadaway and Tait Walker, chartered accountants. The AMF works in tandem with these preferred suppliers to ensure that each one offers members a tailored benefits package, this allows members the chance to receive specialist advice across a variety of expertise when they need it most.
