The Amtest Group is the fastest growing distributor in Central and Eastern Europe, with personnel and offices, covering our home territories of Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovak Republic and Bulgaria - with operations starting in Serbia and Slovenia in 2018.

This growth has been achieved through moving away from the traditional sales – distributor company formula, to
  • An “added value” provider, where value, and excellence has become our core focus
  • “Risk-free” client decisions, with all Group Personnel investments strictly focused on processes knowledges, new enabling technologies and “best in class” pro-active activities
  • “Teamwork” where knowledges from one territory, one industry are shared throughout the Group. The success of our Brand is based on the “Team”
To assist this development, the Group, has developed its own Centre of Excellence located in our own facility in Budapest, Hungary, where process and development work is provided to our client base to assist them in their production challenges.

Due to the success of the Budapest laboratory, a second facility has now been opened in Wroclaw, Poland.

Amtest Group now consists of over 50 personnel (which includes 17 process engineers) all working within our territories, and has become ISO 9000-2008 certified.


Amtest Associates Limited was established in London, England in 1973, by Peter Taylor and Miro Irgl and since the Companies inception 40-years ago has exclusively worked in Central and Eastern Europe.

The origin of the name, was “AM”erican “TEST” shortened to Amtest and it was at the vanguard of offering state of the art, test equipment, to the former Eastern Bloc.

The Amtest vision since 1973 is to represent and supply equipment from the leading Global manufacturers and critically also to install, warrant, service and provide application support to our client base.

In 2011 the Amtest Group opened its new Centre of Excellence in Budapest, Hungary, exhibited at the Productronica Trade show for the first time and changed our Company colours and logo.
