ASM (Automated Stone Machinery), the Bolton, Lancashire, makers of stone cutting machinery, have revamped their image.
ASM claim to be the first company in the world to have produced CNC stone cutting machines when they introduced their first one 20 years ago.
The company accredit their success to a commitment to research and development and product quality. That commitment is now being reflected in corporate literature and complete rebranding of their corporate image.
With the new image comes a major push into the USA with their computerised profiling saws and free standing block saws.
They have sold into the USA before - they famously supplied The White House in Washington - but now want to focus more closely on the massive north American market.
On the drawing board at the moment they have an economy version of the popular ASM Angling Bridge Saw. It caters for blades up to 600mm diameter and will be available in various specifications, all with the ability to angle blades from vertical through to 45âˆž.
