It is with great sadness that we report that Lesley Dickin passed away on Wednesday 26th January 2022; she had suffered a brief illness before passing away in hospital where Steve, Jamie (their son) and sister were with her to the end.
For Ambic, Lesley was a valuable and important member of our office team and was responsible for Sales & Marketing, HR and a raft of other roles which she managed with ease and great professionalism for a little over eighteen years. She will be missed most of all for her smile, friendship and can-do attitude.
Ambic has just commissioned a new 3 Axis CNC machine for its Engineering and Tool Making Department, enabling it to undertake more tool making work-in house and thus shorten tool making lead times where certain engineering processes previously had to be outsourced. The CNC Machine was recently installed in a refurbished Tool Room which was extended to accommodate the new machine.

Reluctant to miss the opportunity to say a proper fond farewell to Mike Tyler, Ambic’s Financial Controller, who retired after more than 14 years in the job, staff at Ambic organised a virtual or ‘on-line’ retirement party for him just before the Easter break.
Office staff working from home joined production staff in Witney by dialling in to a virtual on-line meeting to hear Colin Kingston, Ambic’s MD, sing Mike’s praises for his dedication to Ambic in helping to steer Ambic through a period of significant growth and change.
Mike will be invited back to Ambic once conditions return to normal for a more conventional celebration.
Ambic is pleased to announce that it has been invited to join the Milking Equipment Association (MEA). The MEA is the trade association for manufacturers, dealers and suppliers of milking equipment and systems whose vision is ‘to promote, educate and improve best practice and standards and influence relevant dairy organisations and to represent the best interests of the UK based Milking Equipment manufacturers and associated equipment companies in a globally changing competitive environment’ We look forward to working with the MEA.
Further details about the work of the MEA are available at www.milkingsystems.co.uk.
Following the announcement from the UK Government on the 23 March of the actions required to control the spread of Corona Virus (Covid-19), Ambic has put in place an action plan to protect its staff that complies with the Government’s latest recommendations. We consider that our products are essential for those customers who are involved in food production. Ambic will therefore remain in operation with a reduced staffing level and is committed to serving our customers with essential services and product during this difficult time.
Arrangements will be reviewed on a regular basis and operating practices modified accordingly. Please check our website for regular updates.
Thank you for your continued custom.

Following the addition of ultra-sonic welding of the MilkSampler Cap to the MilkSampler Body in 2013 an O-Ring has now been added to the external seal, as illustrated below, in order to prevent any ingress of moisture between the MilkSampler Cap and the MilkSampler Body.
The Ambic MilkSampler has proven to be a very popular herd management tool which is ideal for checking the constituents of milk, such as protein levels, for determining somatic cell counts and for taking Bactoscan measurements.
It is ideally suited to the NMR Essential Sampling Service in the UK as well as for comparable schemes that operate in a number of markets.
