What’s been happening at AMS Doonans?

Welcome to our update on the latest developments at AMS Doonans in Weymouth.

At AMS Doonans, our dedicated team has been working tirelessly since the acquisition in January to enhance the already excellent services previously provided by Doonans of Weymouth.

Our focus has been on improving the customer experience, streamlining the ordering process, showcasing the new AMS Doonans brand, upskilling our staff, and enhancing our on-site health and safety standards.

Here are some of the significant steps we have taken:

  • Inductions and PPE: Ensuring the safety of our personnel is a top priority for AMS Doonans. That’s why we have conducted extensive induction programs and provided all employees with appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure their well-being in the workplace.
  • Plant operators assessment: We have taken extra measures to assess the competence of our operators. All operators have undergone professional assessment and certification to ensure their proficiency.
  • Health & Safety instruction and programme: We are committed to maintaining a safe working environment. As a result, we have established a comprehensive health and safety program that prioritises the well-being of all our personnel.
  • Occupational health survey: Recently, we conducted an occupational health survey to monitor and safeguard the continued health and well-being of all our personnel.
  • Vehicle re-branding: To create a more unified brand image, we have rebranded our vehicles, showcasing the new AMS Doonans brand to the public.
  • Clean and tidy work environment: We have invested effort into creating a cleaner and tidier yard and workshop. Our staff have removed all scrap and waste items, resulting in a more pleasant environment for all site users, including our valued customers.
  • Upgraded batching plant: As quality is a key priority for us, we have updated our batching plant with new metering systems. This enhancement enhances the accuracy of our concrete mixes and ultimately delivers higher-quality concrete.
  • Concrete testing regime: To ensure consistent quality, we have put a concrete testing regime in place. Our newly acquired equipment allows us to rigorously and regularly test the quality of our concrete.
  • New telephone and IT systems: Efficient communication is vital in providing excellent service. That’s why we have recently installed new telephone and IT systems, which will facilitate smoother and more effective interactions between our staff and customers.

These changes have been without compromising any of our services in Weymouth and all staff members have been retained following the acquisition, ensuring continuity and stability.

Looking ahead, we’re eagerly anticipating receiving BSI accreditation as a testament to our commitment to excellence.
