Reliable operation is essential, so all of our equipment is designed for low maintenance, high reliability and high availability in service, meaning low cost of ownership to the end-user.

AGI hold accreditations to the international recognised quality approvals for design, manufacture, test, installation, servicing and software disciplines, including ISO 9001.

AGI have recently embarked upon a Lean/Sigma transformation programme encompassing all aspects of the organisations operations and activities. We have chosen Lean/Sigma as our unifying framework in order to ensure the achievement of our Critical Success Factors. Through our Policy Deployment model we have managed to connect strategies, goals, processes and projects within and across Business Units with a set of KPI’s that connect us together and drive accountability at all levels.

As we move forward, this methodology will enable us to continue the transformation of our organisation and help transition Lean/Sigma from ‘special project work’ to ‘the way we do things around here’.
