Although we started out in 1967 as a small operation, today we are a medium-sized company with a subsidiary in the United States (AMG of North America), with many agents and bases on five continents.

Whereas we used to work under the roof of an old mill in Burgstall in Wuerttemberg, AMG today has become a company with modern management, generously dimentioned shop, administration and sales rooms in Affalterbach in Swabia, SW Germany.

Whereas we used to concentrate on modifying engines and suspensions, today we make changes to the whole car including all its technical and optical aspects.

A whole range of possible modifications opens up as ways to meet such high technical and aesthetic standards.

This process is so complete that it covers every conceivable desire a customer can have, no matter how exotic. AMG customers are always individualists, whose high standards have been expressed most aptly by the English writer Oscar Wilde: "I have very simple taste, I am always satisfied with the best."

Everything that applies to Mercedes cars also applies to AMG's modifications: logical conclusions instead of compromises. And just as the mark of a Mercedes is quality, the particular characteristic of a Mercedes modified by AMG is its individuality.

As long as it appears reasonable aesthetically and technically, AMG will modify anything the customer want to have modified... and everything to the highest quality standards. "To continue to improve on good features without ever being satisfied with what one has achieved" is AMG's working principle The same principle that made a medium-sized international enterprise out of a small operation in only a few years.
