Iconic Armoured Mamba Hulls to be made by MTL Group

Leading global armour specialist MTL Group has been awarded a significant contract to supply fabricated armoured hulls to Panzer Technologies for its Mamba Vehicle.

The armoured vehicles which are intended for use in peace keeping operations will be manufactured at MTL Group Headquarters in the UK then shipped ready for final assembly to South Africa.

Simon Hurst Sales Manager for Defence said:

“This is an important order for MTL Group and it makes it even more special manufacturing such an iconic vehicle such as the Mamba”.

The Mamba vehicle has been around a long time and has proven itself over and over again. MTL Group was chosen as the preferred supplier for various reasons. Along with its state of the art manufacturing capability and competitive pricing, MTL Group adds value to THE project through its unique DFM (Design for Manufacture) service.

“The customer liked the idea that we wouldn't just weld the product rather that we would support and provide a DFM review that would enhance the product”

MTL Group’s objective is always to look at areas for design improvement where weight and cost can be removed and ideas to improve protection can be implemented, giving its customers an enhanced value proposition.

MTL Group’s DFM is a proven service and has really taken off with many leading OEMs engaging with MTL Group at the design stage to help them produce more cost effective vehicles that can compete in today's economic climate.

“The key thing our customers like" says Hurst "is the innovation we bring, we are helping designers around the world to improve the integrity of the structure whilst reducing manufacturing costs"

MTL Group will exhibiting its one piece blast floors and IMPAS armour at African Aero Defence 2012 in Johannesburg this September.
