Ampcontrol continues to expand its global footprint, opening a new cable workshop in the Port of Ayr to fulfil the rising demand for cable products and services.

Locals are pleased to see familiar faces from Ampcontrol supporting the local economy and driving business to the town of Ayr. Ampcontrol’s Chief Operating Officer – Europe and Asia, Steven Edmund opens the facility by saying “Expanding into the cable shop symbolises a long history of heritage at the Port of Ayr. We are fortunate to support our local communities through our international growth.”

For over 100 years, Ampcontrol has built its reputation on the back of its service and technical expertise, supporting some of the largest mining and tunnelling projects worldwide. Andrew Trenam, Service Manager, who has been overseeing the progressing demand for Ampcontrol cable services said, “The extent of our growth is a testament to the service we provide. As we continue to exceed the expectations of our customers, we continue to advance.”

The new Cable Shop team is comprised of some of Ampcontrol’s most experienced technicians with over 35 years of combined technical expertise. Joining them will be Daniel Morris, an electrical engineering apprentice from Ayrshire Kilmarnock College who has been with Ampcontrol for 2 years.

Supplying an impressive range of mining and tunnelling cable to its local and international customers, Ampcontrol also provides a complete package of cable management services such as cable repair, terminations, coupler fitment, and safety testing. Ampcontrol has already amassed an impressive portfolio of international projects and clients to the Ayr cable shop, including major tunnelling projects in Paris and Europe.

As a business, we are extremely proud to reach this key milestone as it is a testament to our continued development and the increasing demand for Ampcontrol products and services across international mining, tunnelling, and oil and gas industries.
