OPERATIONS AND COMPANY PHILOSOPHY
AMIGA Technologies is a 100% daughter company of ESCOM. We are
located in Bensheim, 40 miles southwards of Frankfurt and a few
miles away from Heppenheim, where ESCOM has its offices.
To be good in making, selling and promoting the Amiga, one has to
like the Amiga and stand behind it. We at AMIGA Technologies think
that our team has to be made of Amiga specialists who believe in
what they are doing and that's the way we go. Once completed, our
staff will be of about 50 people, working in sales, production,
marketing/PR, accounting and finances, human ressources, support
and especially development of new hardware and software. We think
internationaly because we are an international company. People from
all parts of the world are joining our young and dynamic team. In
our offices, English is more often spoken than German.
Production and quality control are high priorities to ensure total
customer satisfaction; We only work with the best part providers
and most reputable assemblers to assure the high degree of
reliability we want for our systems.
Distribution and logistics are also important keys to successful
operations for us. Our worldwide distribution is centralized in the
Netherlands where we have the infrastructure needed to provide
Amigas to the world. In each country, we have a distribution unit
to assure the relay and proper support needed locally. This can be
as a subsidiary or with a distribution and sales partner, depending
on the needs.
The Amiga market has a high potential and first of all is a
worldwide market. The multimedia market is even bigger and it is
our market of choice. With the high potential of our technology in
this aspect, we know that we have the best chances to become an
important player very soon. In the United States, where the number
of local Cable Televisions is increasing rapidly, the Amiga is an
appreciated system for broadcasting applications. Amigas are used
in Hollywood to make films and productions like Babylon V or
Seaquest DSV are some examples among others. Companies use our
computers with multimedia authoring systems, which quality and
power is unmatched on other platforms.
Third party support on the Amiga is excellent and numerous. We know
that we have creative and productive partners who make the Amiga a
better system every day. We want to work together with these people
and build up fruitful partnerships with them. We allready have
signed agreements with SCALA software to bundle our systems with
their outstanding multimedia authoring system. The Amiga can now be
used as a powerfull multimedia workstation out of the box.
Our technology, development and what we can make out of
Power to the user is our goal at short and long term. Going RISC is
a priority for us. Porting our operating system to a new generation
hardware technology in a user-friendly manner is the best way to
keep our loyal customers and gain new ones. For the short term,
implemanting the fast 68060 processor from Motorola is an evident
move we will do quickly. Again, here we hire the most excellent
technicians and have the best partners to achieve this ambitious
endeavour. The future of home computing resides in intelligent and
integrated high-technology devices like set-top-boxes which combine
user friendliness, powerfull hardware, communication skills and
online services. All we need is coming very soon : the
communication highways, the online service providers, pay TV and
home shopping. All this bundled to our technology will enable us to
bring new and exciting products to the customer at extremely
