All of the company’s new and fully rebuilt machines carry a comprehensive 12 months guarantee.
AMP-Rose’s engineers are experienced with many brands and types of processing and packaging machines, which allows the company to supply almost any machine required in the confectionery manufacturing process.
“Over the last couple of years, rebuilt machinery has become more popular,” explains Adam Malpass, sales and marketing executive at AMP-Rose. “Due to the economic climate, many companies have looked for alternatives to new machines. What customers have found is that our rebuilt machines are built to a ‘like new’ standard, so they gain the same performance and longevity as a new one but at a fraction of the cost.”

It supplies spare parts for all ‘Rose’ and ‘Forgrove’ candy machines. AMP-Rose can also supply spare parts such as replacement cams, gears, paper knives and general running spares for many different brands.
AMP-Rose’s skilled and experienced service engineers are available for the installation and commissioning of the company’s machines, whether in the UK or abroad.

With hundreds of machines in stock, we can provide a wide selection of equipment. We can also supply lines with a mixture of new, used and rebuilt machinery.” Adam Malpass continues: “We also supply new spare parts for both our own machines and our competitors, making us a one-stop solutions provider.”
