AFM specialises in the supply and servicing of laser, bending, punching and shearing systems that incorporate specialist software designed to streamline the process chain and minimise waste, thereby increasing profitability. 

As the sole UK distributor for Ermaksan Machinery, we’re able to offer a range of top quality machine tools and provide comprehensive after-sales support to ensure you get the very best from your investment. 

AFM was established nearly 40 years ago as a supplier of used machinery. The experience we have gained over this time makes us well placed to offer pre-sales advice as well as post-sales support in the form of servicing, maintenance, repairs, retrofitting and even training. 

10 years ago we begun selling and servicing new machinery from the world’s leading suppliers, and in 2009 we moved to our present purpose-built facility with offices and a workshop with overhead craneage up to 20 tons. 

We are now the largest supplier of fabricating and sheet metalworking equipment in the North East of England and one of the largest in the United Kingdom. 

Some of our systems are detailed in the sections below. To see what else we can offer, both in terms of products and services, please head over to the AFM Europe website – or simply get in touch on 01670 735 434.
