MTL Group to work with BDO Sheffield office
Business advisory firm, BDO’s Sheffield office has been selected to support Yorkshire-based MTL Group as the manufacturing firm prepares for growth.
BDO Sheffield recently merged with PKF at the beginning of April 2013, and will now work alongside MTL, who specialise in advanced metal products to sectors such as defence, recycling, construction, rail, and offshore and renewable energy.
MTL operates out of a 300,000 sq ft facility in Rotherham as well as a dockside site in Blyth, Northumberland.
BDO secured the deal through a competitive tender process, to provide audit services and business advice to MTL, while the firm hopes to expand its exports and presence overseas.
Manufacturing specialists and partners Craig Burton and Chris Humphreys led the BDO team with support from Rachel Heath.
Craig Burton, audit partner at BDO LLP in Sheffield commented: “MTL is a dynamic and ambitious business that has set its sights on growth. It operates in sectors that provide real opportunities to such an innovative company, such as offshore wind and defence.
“We are very much looking forward to working with the management team going forward, providing audit services to support the company’s growth strategy.”
David O’Hara, group finance director at MTL Group, said: “Choosing a new adviser to support our expansion plans was a big decision. We wanted to work with a proactive team that knows our market and is committed to a genuine partnership approach.
“BDO’s experience of working in advanced manufacturing and the sectors we supply to is impressive, as too is its international capabilities. We believe they will play an important part in our future success.”
