Carburettor makers, of Aston Cross, Birmingham
of Witton, Birmingham (1924)
1911 Amac carburettors were fitted to many of the motorcycles shown at the Olympia Show
1913 The company advertised its products as Aston Motor Accessories Co
As a result of the 'amal-gamation' of two or three organisations (notably Brown and Barlow and Amac) in the years immediately after the First World War, the Amalgamated Carburetters (AMAL) company and trademark was formed in order to manufacture and market carburettors and associated products.
1993 Sold to Grosvenor Works in North London: a family run business specialising in supplying components to various fuel systems companies. Grosvenor then began revitalising the AMAL product range by commencing a programme of re-introducing some of the more popular ranges of obsolete product.
2003 the business was sold yet again, this time to the current manufacturesr, Burlen Fuel Systems Limited. BFA, who also produce both SU, Solex and Zenith products have over recent years gained a high reputation for continuing to produce carburetters and spares keeping a vast range of British classic vehicles alive.
BFS have continued to invest in AMAL product by further increasing the range of popular obsolete back into production.
