AMC-SCHOU's history started in the early part of last century. Aarhus Motor Company was established in 1925 as a Ford car dealer in the centre of Aarhus. The need for specialised machines for the reconditioning of combustion engines arose and in 1938 production of the first machines was started. After successful export sales, a separate company, Aarhus Machine Company (AMC) was established in 1951. AMC continued with the design, production and sales of crankshaft grinding machines, cylinder block boring and milling machines and cylindrical grinding machines etc. In 1980 Aarhus Motor Company closed down due to a recession in the car business but AMC continued as a separate company. In 1998, AMC-SCHOU AS moved to new, purpose-built, premises covering 9,000 m2 in Galten, 20 km west of Aarhus.
In 2012, Bestech Group succeeded in the buyout of AMC-SCHOU. And in 2014, AMC-SCHOU had moved into a new factory covering 6,000 m2 in Zhangjiagang ,China, which is close to Shanghai. AMC-SCHOU AS has delivered approximately 16,000 machines to more than 100 countries and is known world-wide for high quality and after sales service - The Benefits of Precision.
