The company specialises in in all aspects of small commercial craft design and procurement. We work with craft built in GRP, steel and aluminium; we even have involvement with historic timber craft on occasions.
We provide technical support services for a wide range of clients including yards and builders and consultancy services to authorities, companies and individuals.
Amgram Ltd was formed in 1987 by Director Paul Graville. Like many small businesses we were originally based in a home office. During the period 1995- 2000, the company grew steadily, gaining a wider range of clients, adding staff, computer systems and software. By 2001 we relocated to our new office, also in Shoreham, but in a converted Victorian church hall overlooking the harbour. Altogether this is a much more fitting environment for a naval architecture company.
We carry out the majority of the design work in AUTOCAD using the MAXSURF and HYDROMAX specialist naval architecture software. We use 3d modelling RHINO software and specialist SHIP CONSTRUCTOR software to produce plug mould and metal boat building kit data.
Our computer systems are constantly backed up off site to mirror servers and we have FTP facilities for large file transfer to and from Clients..
