MTL Group Wins Defence Contract Worth EUR 4 M

(May 24, 2010) -- MTL Group, one Europe's largest suppliers of processed armour has been awarded a significant contract worth more than EUR4m to supply TL approved armour to a major German OEM for a large scale vehicle programme. The contract will use all of MTL Group's processing equipment which includes large format laser cutting, waterjet cutting, large intricate pressing, automated welding, large CNC machining and painting. MTL Group's ability to supply high quality parts from both armour and high strength materials at a commercially competitive price is now recognised worldwide and significant orders are being secured for this service. Karl Stewart, Sales Director comments "This is a major breakthrough for us in the German market. We had to ensure all the correct qualifications were in place including the rigorous TL audit that was carried out at our manufacturing site in 2009. This has made us the only supplier to have this qualification in the UK". "The other main area our customers are benefiting from is our wide range of stock armour and also our strong buying power from the armour manufacturing mills"
