Founded in 1978 Ambic started out life as a contract plastic moulding operation and during the last forty years it has built up significant expertise in the area of precision moulding and the design and manufacture of semi-technical plastic products.
The design and development of its own range of products for the dairy industry in the 1980’s saw Ambic become an expert in the development of products capable of withstanding the harsh operating environment of the dairy farm. In particular, its close collaboration with the National Institute for Research in Dairying (NIRD), based at the University of Reading, enabled it to develop mastitis prevention and detection into core competences.
First to market
In the area of mastitis prevention Ambic was first to market with a dip cup in the mid 80’s, and first to market with its now famous non return dip cup in 1992, and first to market again with a foaming dip cup in 1995. It continues to innovate and lead the market in dip cup technology.
Ambic’s Classic teat spray system was also the first teat spray system to market in the late 80s, followed by the development of its higher capacity Jetstream system which was developed to cater for larger herds and has become the industry benchmark for teat spraying.
From its modest beginnings on the UK market Ambic has consistently grown and expanded its distribution so that today its products are sold and used by farmers in more than 55 countries around the world. Indeed Ambic has become the world leader in its chosen fields of mastitis prevention and mastitis detection.
