MTL Advanced is a dynamic contract manufacturing specialist in the metal sector based in Brinsworth.


As part of WEC Group, one of the largest subcontract engineering and fabrication companies in the UK, we utilise state-of-the-art cutting, CNC machining and automated welding/fabrication technology to provide a range of services for customers in the UK, Europe, Middle East and Asia.

Based on a 13 hectare site on Grange Lane, Brinsworth and operating from a 300,000 sq. ft. facility, we have invested over £8.5m in new manufacturing technology and floorspace since 2016. This includes robotic welding technology, dynamic laser cutting machines and an industry-leading  surface treatment plant.

The business has also increased employee numbers by 110 to 245 in the past 24 months and is expecting to reach 300 in 2018 as we strive to close the worrying engineering skills gap and boost local job creation.

This growth is supported by a number of long term contract wins in the prolific rail, defence and construction sectors. We are also an established major exporter of components and fabrications manufactured from specialist materials such as wear resistant steels, high strength steels and armour plate in both steel and alloys.

As we are committed to working with/supporting local businesses and the community, we have created long standing relationships with many local companies over the years. We are an official Corporate Sponsor of Rotherham Titans Rugby Club and a Corporate Partner of Rotherham Hospice, supplying laser cut stainless steel leaves and bark pieces which feature etched messages for the unique ‘Tree of Life’ sculpture.

As part of the wider Yorkshire community, we also recently teamed up with The Yorkshire Society to manufacture steel laser cut plaques which will be erected on the buildings of companies founded in and still operating in Yorkshire.
