What We Do

We produce quality machined and manufactured assemblies for major OEM's, including state of the art machining, sheet metal, welding, assembly, and a multitude of other fabrication processes.

Industry

Manufacturing & Wholesale

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Quality
#2 - Full Service Shop
#3 - Turnkey Assemblies

Our Target Audience:

We are primarily a Business-to-Business Shop, dealing with Transportation Companies, Medical Equipment Manufacturers, and Bulk Mailing Machine Manufacturers

Color Preferences

No green, but we are open to pretty much everything else.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

We were thinking of emphasizing the first letters of each word, kinda re-branding as "AMPI" (Allen Machine Products Inc.) but would probably also want to include the full name in some respect. Also we are looking for a modern feel, but not too over the top.

AMPI sounds wimpy...AMP is more brandable (with full name included).

Hi Designers,

Sorry for the delay in getting you the first bit of feedback. I have to work with a number of people so things run a bit slowly around here.

The last bit of feedback i got came in before we received numbers 14-16, so i'll show those around and get you more feedback on that.

We like the concepts that have been ranked so far... On #7 we would like to maybe change the symbol that is above the name or perhaps eliminate the symbol.

Thanks

As this is our first contest, it has been a little bit difficult in getting the client to give good feedback so i apologize for the delays in updating. We have re-ranked the entries according to our last discussions.

So far we haven't found a winner yet, but are getting closer. We like the Red/Black theme like #13 as well as the Blue/Grey theme as in #20

We like using the initials 'AMPI' but would also be open to some examples with 'AMP Inc'
We also like having the complete name somewhere else in the logo, like #20, #13, #3, #27, etc

Are there any question you'd like answered that may help guide you on your designs?

Hi All,

I am trying to clean up some clutter, while trying to give people rankings and attempting to order these in some way.

We got a big response on #34, #36 and #53.
We ended up not liking the AMP Inc when the Inc was placed where it is in concepts #40 and #45 for example.

Thanks Again!
