- AMT-Veneet Oy Uurontie 1-2, 80770 Kontiolahti Finland
the Company AMT (Advanced Marine Technology) was established over 30 years ago on the basis of boat business unit of a large Finnish distribution network and has long produced boats as a subcontractor. In 2005, ATM left the "mother" of the trade network and began to develop independently. The transition from contract manufacturing to developing its own line of products allowed us to implement the best practices and ideas of the company experts. The success of this effort contributed to a thorough knowledge of the requests of the local consumers and the desire to produce truly well-balanced and high-quality product in the most popular niche dimension, 4 to 7 meters. On debut for Helsinki International Boat Show in 2006, the company demonstrated its first 5 models, warmly welcomed by the audience. The crisis of 2008 had a negative impact on sales, but in the next few years, the company did not lose time and significantly developed the segment of after-sales service of their boats. Today the shipyard produced more than 30,000 buildings. Export of boats AMT goes mainly to Norway and Sweden, but the important markets are Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Russia, UK, Belgium, Holland and even Turkey.
"it is significant that the importance of exports and its share has increased significantly, says Michael Winquist, Executive Director of the AMT. Here we are in the same situation as other successful Finnish manufacturers. If in 2007-2008, our exports were of the same magnitude as the internal sales, now it is about 80% of sales".

In the year produces about 500 hulls in GRP, with a design capacity of sites can produce up to 1600 boats annually. In the production process, the company strives to use Finnish materials and equipment (in fact, imports only windshields). To optimize production, the company has developed a proprietary software product

the Company managed to find a balance between cost and quality of their boats. Moreover, the basic equipment of boats of the shipyard often includes the accessories which the competitors offer to the consumer, optionally, and for a hefty price. Their boats AMT is committed to do not only stylish and comfortable, but as safe as possible.
