AMG is a supplier of branded outdoor equipment. It celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017 though its roots can be traced back to 1847 providing equipment for many historic expeditions, the Scouts, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and generations of outdoor enthusiasts.
Renowned for designing and developing expedition equipment used for decades in the world’s most extreme environments, AMG has, over time, expanded its ranges to include family tents, awnings, sleeping bags, rucksacks and camping equipment. Its impressive portfolio includes market-leading brands such as Vango®, F10 Series®, Lichfield® and Blacks of Greenock®. In addition, AMG is the long term distributor of Rossignol® snowsports equipment and apparel, Swedish stove brand Trangia® and Wayfayrer® expedition food.
