The direct access to free technical support shows the dedication the company puts into each and every project they work with. What attracted me to joining the company is the fact that in spite of having grown to be one of the companies in its field globally, AMG retains its friendly small company feel, and enjoys an excellent reputation and image. Furthermore, AMG's products are cutting edge, and highly acclaimed. Outside of that, the company has always enjoyed a reputation for delivering products of very high quality. India is a significant market for AMG's products with many high profile reference installations and I am looking forward to building on the success for continued business development."
