If you’re looking for some good reasons to come to us for your educational furniture, here’s just a few.

But don’t just take our word for it, listen to what some of our customers say about why they come back to us again and again.


Our installation staff are craftsmen in multiple disciplines. This enables us to complete work in a fraction of the time of our competitors. A two or three man team can clear, install & fit a complete toilet block within approximately one week as opposed to the five or six week disruption that often ensues.

We are diverse and versatile to adapt to the changing needs of our customers. This leads to innovation in product design as it is determined by actual demand. Because everything is designed & manufactured in-house at our purpose built factory we can develop prototypes for ourselves & our clients.

Unique Turnaround Speed

As we manufacture everything ourselves we can change our production scheduling to handle very tight lead times on unusually urgent work. We believe that we are unique in having the ability to turn around custom-built furniture in a couple of days & indeed have helped out many clients on many occasions in this way.

Quality Materials

At Ambic we refuse to lower the quality of our products by using inferior grade materials. Our engineering-led design ensures that all materials used are well qualified for the job. A cupboard door at home may be opened and closed tens of times a day, whereas in school it needs to withstand being opened, closed and bashed hundreds of times, every day. Our furniture exceeds this expectation as some of our schools still use our furniture twenty years after being originally purchased!
