MTM is a privately owned family company that commenced operations in 1965 with a primary focus on manufacturing tools for the automotive industry. Four years later, the company commenced manufacturing automotive components for Chrysler and has not looked back.
Since then, MTM has grown and consolidated its operations to encompass design, engineering and manufacturing capabilities that supply door checks, automatic gearshifts, inside and outside door handles to all three of Australia?s current vehicle manufacturers including Holden, Ford, and Toyota.
The company?s South Oakleigh manufacturing facility is currently outfitted with power presses and injection moulding machines to enable self sufficiency in supplying all components required for the in house manufacturing process.
MtM?s innovative approach is echoed across all facets of MTM?s operations and is particularly evident through the application of lean design disciplines that have led to the company being recognised as a world leader in the automatic gearshift and door check markets. Around 3 million door checks are exported annually to the USA. Additionally, strong exports are enjoyed across the Middle East and China. Future contracts include India, South Africa, South America and Thailand.
MtM is also branching into manufacturing non auto products in the areas of safety, water conservation and vehicle security.
It is their strategic approach that has enabled MtM?s success in non-automotive and automotive business to secure increasing sales in a globally competitive market. MtM has recently been inducted into the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame.
