About Advanced Media Supplies

Advanced Media Supplies (AMS) was founded in 2008 by Trevor Allan after working in the Potting Mix and Bark industry for 18 years. It is a family owned company focusing on providing high quality media made from local renewable resources.

Based in the Hawkes Bay, we are close to the natural raw material supply and with one of the lowest rainfall regions in New Zealand, this enables us to produce a consistent reliable product every time.

AMS take pride in being flexible to customers' requirements and can manufacture potting mix recipes to individual requirements, we work closely with NZ leading fertiliser companies and can develop recipes to suit your application and regional requirements.

AMS takes pride in developing long term relationships with their customers' individual requirements and growing situations.

We have the experience to construct a winning recipe.

We can supply any quantities from 1m³ through to truck and trailer loads working with your existing transport contractor or we can arrange transport for you.
