Established in 1990 by a merger between Moncore Pneumatic Tubes and M.I.L., Advanced Pneumatic Technology Limited (APT) is now the leading supplier of pneumatic air tube systems in Ireland. The company operates manufacturing, installation and service divisions serving three key areas:
- Hospitals and Healthcare
- Industry and Commercial
- Retail and Cash Security
We installed our first system at Louth County Hospital, Dundalk in 1988. The system was of tremendous benefit to the hospital, speedily transporting specimens to the laboratory for analysis and returning reports to the hospital wards. The original system was upgraded to the AC 1000 automatic despatch system in 1997, and then to the AC 3000 in 2007 to serve most areas of the hospital through eleven stations, including pharmacy. To date we have systems operating in 40 hospitals in Ireland and 84 in the UK.
Our industrial installations enable movement of both goods and paperwork – from aircraft engine parts, diamonds, alumina and perfume samples to electronic components and original documents. The cost of installation is quickly offset by savings in time and labour. Lufthansa Airmotive is one company that is achieving enormous savings by using our air tube system.
In 1995 APT designed and manufactured ‘Safe-linK’, a new style of control system for the pneumatic conveyors. The cash tube system was a revolutionary approach and soon made systems available to retailers of all kinds, offering enhanced security and peace of mind. As the company grew from strength to strength we were proud to come first in the Meath Enterprise Awards and fourth in the All-Ireland Enterprise Awards. A year later we were awarded the Ulster Bank/Irish Independent Increase in Business Award for successfully managing the growth of the business.
To date there are more than 4,000 Safe-linK cash tube systems installed nationwide – each providing peace of mind to every retail owner, cashier or staff member that their working day is safer.
The quality of the service provided by APT to all of our customers is a testimony to the dedication of our highly trained staff. We operate a dedicated 24-hour telephone support service to all our customers. Click here to see what some of our customers have to say.
