At the recent AGM, members of the Automated Material Handling Systems Association (AMHSA) voted to appoint Scott Chambers as the trade body’s new President.
With over 30 years’ experience as an entrepreneur, hands-on structural engineer and technology enthusiast, Scott Chambers has been Managing Director of Mezzanine International Group, one of the largest mezzanine flooring firms in Europe, for over 15 years. He is also Development Director of the Mezzanine Systems Division of Mezzanine International’s parent company, US-owned engineering construction giant, MiTek. Commented outgoing President, Martin Elliott, “Scott has a wealth of experience and is highly respected in the industry, so his appointment has been widely welcomed.”
Scott Chambers commented, “I am both honoured and excited to take on the role of AMHSA President. With unprecedented demand for intralogistics automation right now, AMHSA has a very important role to play – particularly in maintaining standards and ensuring that there is sufficient recruitment and training in the industry to meet this demand.”
Beginning his career in a structural engineering consultancy as a structural draughtsman and then a steel designer, Scott soon moved into business development. After a period as National Sales Manager for a structural engineering company, he founded his own mezzanine flooring business in 1991. Within just 10 years, he took this originally home-based business to become one of the leading trade suppliers of mezzanine flooring in the UK. His passion and experience as an entrepreneur led to the 2004 business expansion into Europe and the opening of Mezzanine Europe GmbH in Germany in 2016. Scott continues to drive the mezzanine industry forwards through creative innovation. Away from the office, he is passionate about his family, high-performance cars and football.

Scott Chambers takes the reins at an important time for AMHSA, as the association prepares for the industry’s largest UK event, IMHX, which will take place at Birmingham’s NEC from 24th to 27th September. “AMHSA will once again be hosting its ‘Meet the Experts’ seminar series in the AMHSA Pavilion,” explained Scott Chambers, “giving visitors insight on a number of hot topics in the field of logistics automation. It’s a great opportunity for end-users to come and meet AMHSA members, ask questions and discover more about the benefits of automation.”
