MTL Group Limited secures significant contract for armoured hulls

Category: Defence Industry

Mtl Group has secured a further significant order for fabricated and painted armoured vehicle hulls. MTL Group’s customer is a leading manufacturer of armoured vehicles and is globally renowned for producing some of the most advanced vehicles in the defence sector.

Simon Hurst Sales Manager for defence at MTL Group stated “This is a significant multi-million pound export order and MTL was selected as a partner due to its state of the art facility, equipment and hull manufacturing experience. Quality and a competitive offering with the benefit of our Design for Manufacture service gave the customer an enhanced value proposition”.

MTL Group has rapidly become the leading global manufacturer of high quality fabricated hulls. Hurst stated “This is the third significant contract for armoured hulls in the last few months and we have more serious enquiries that will hopefully come to fruition in the coming months”.

Design for Manufacture

MTL Groups Design for Manufacture service takes an OEM’s original design and reviews it with the following principles:

  • Reduce weight

  • Improve protection

  • Lower Cost

This service is now being embraced by many leading global OEMs who have successfully benefitted from this process.

Hurst says "We are seeing an increasing trend where many of our customers do not want to employ a large workforce but can simply turn to us when they need to and walk away when they don't. MTL Group’s recent investment also includes a large format robot welding cell specifically designed for producing armoured hulls. This new equipment enables not only cost savings but also volume production but most importantly improved quality.
