Rotherham manufacturer wins defence contract

MTL Advanced is Europe’s largest contract manufacturer of armoured steel structures with projects ranging from piece part kits, turrets and blast floors to fully fabricated, painted and assembled hulls.

In the last three years, it has invested more than £8.5m in state-of-the-art laser cutting, robotic welding and machining technology.

Karl Stewart, director at MTL Advanced, said: “This contract demonstrates the continued growth of MTL Advanced and the confidence our customers have in the team to deliver projects of this type, on time, whilst meeting exacting quality requirements.

“This builds on the success of several recent multi-million pound contracts with NIMR Automotive, which were

delivered on time and within budget.”
