About AMS

AMS is a construction and maintenance company working in Western Canada and southern United States. We have extensive background in fabrication, alignment and installation of new equipment and the improvement and installation of safety devices.

Advanced Millwright Services was formed in early 2009,  this was during a small recession and Mr Johnson identified a downturn in industrial  projects. He decided to try a different approach, using complete transparency and open book policies.   The company has continued to grow in good times and bad and still  remains locally owned by Tim Johnson and Curtis Loewen
