Our Team


Daniel Rushton, Managing Director
Dan took over ownership of A.I.S in December 2017. Having spent the last 15 years as a mechanic, starting as an Apprentice Mechanic and moving through to being Regional Service Manager for a well known Agricultural company, the challenge of business ownership and the prospect of creating a legacy for his family saw him take up this opportunity.
