AMT opens new rental facility in central Birmingham
As well as a glass fronted showroom, the new location includes a full customer reception, an indoor valet area, extensive customer parking and houses a fleet of 130 vehicles.
AMT has seven locations from the South East to Scotland, including a new facility in Stockport Manchester which opened in December with the aim of developing rental markets in the North West. This followed the £2m relocation of the company’s headquarters in March 2015 when it moved its 45 head office staff from Morley into a new 52,000sq ft building on a two-acre site on Armley Road with capacity for 120 vehicles.
The vehicle rental specialist said the latest investments form part of its ambitious plans to expand and upgrade its nationwide network, focusing on improving customer accessibility from major cities and airports.
“Since launching 21 years ago, we have seen tremendous growth within the niche prestige and specialist vehicle rental sector and with more than 1,500 vehicles, we have built up one of the largest independent fleets in the UK,” said Neil McGawley, managing director of AMT Group. “As demand from both the corporate and leisure markets continues, we have embarked on an ongoing programme of strategic location development to ensure that we are best placed to serve customers nationwide.”
Andy Crinson, general manager of AMT Vehicle Rental, added: “We have already established a loyal customer base in the West Midlands, based on the high quality and bespoke service we provide. The move to central Birmingham will enable us to take our operation in the region to the next level with the improved capacity at our new facility meaning that we can offer an even wider selection of the more unusual prestige and specialist vehicles for which we are renowned.”
