“Engineering” is skilfully creating, directing and managing with precision.
“Engineering” is seen as being robust, sustainable, reliable and fit-for-purpose.

How we help you
Are you frustrated to be pulled into everyday operations that you thought you had delegated?
Just can’t get your own work done?
If you can’t take a holiday or weekend without having to worry about the business or never catch up on things that take your business forward instead of just “operating”...
Our Leader Liberation Planning Service can solve this for you.
Do you need productivity improvements?
Struggling to make them happen?
Can't get team and boardroom buy-in?
If you feel stuck between “we’ve always done it this way” and your knowledge it can be done better, safer and more profitably...
Our Production Improvement Service can take the load.
Do you need to reduce your operating costs, solve your biggest problems, generate new ideas for your business, build the skills of your team and somehow find more time for your workforce…
Whether you need occasional technical or business advice, mentoring for you or a team member, need industry insight or just a trusted critical friend,
Our custom Manufacturing Support Service can provide you with that sound experience on tap.
Do you have a project in mind, but not the design you need to make sure your suppliers can provide it? On time? On budget? With minimum disruption?
If you need project design details that your own clients, management and project team can relate to.
And get behind,
Our Front End Engineering Design [FEED] Service delivers confidence and clears away confusion
Why choose MATL
● Your team are actively involved in, and engaged with, any solution-building
● You benefit from ideas and solutions from within, and outside of, your own industry
● You get freedom from frameworks, jargon and pre-defined equipment
● You’re provided with an easy-to-understand structured approach, not a magic wand
● You’re released from being tied in to day-to-day operational decisions
We’re focused on your business identity and the strengths of your people. We get the best out of what you have by bringing together your capability and our experience.
Working with you
We are proud to be independent of any equipment manufacturers or specific solutions. We don’t bring you a ready-made solution before we’ve helped you to understand and define the actual problem.
Anything we propose must be:
- Right for you.
- Something you can manage yourselves without being forced to be dependent on a third party.
- Understandable by your own people.
We’re Engineers. Our intent is always to be clear and concise. We hate jargon, abbreviations, industry buzzwords, corporate-speak and secret codes.
We ask if we don’t understand, and we encourage you to do so too, so mistakes don’t get made.
Human in attitude and interest
Our priority is to ensure that your people are included, their needs and concerns are taken into account and that their skills are engaged to benefit your company and their development.
Your team will be keen and capable of overcoming problems, making improvements and spotting opportunities. However, they may lack the confidence, the time or the language to bring them forward.
We develop a strong, trusting relationship with your team and develop their ideas with their buy-in. This results in you having a willing team to move ahead, solutions that they want to own and an increased confidence to be proactive.
Wide range of industries
Every business is unique, so their solution should be too.
With our experiences drawn from a huge range of industries (water, chemical, food, materials handling, energy, machinery), we are able to provide bespoke engineering solutions for your unique circumstances.
You are the expert in your own business and industry; let us be the window to ideas that you may not have seen before.
We genuinely want to help you
Our mission statement is:
We help overwhelmed business owners get the most out of what they have, by bringing together their capability and our experience.
From operations to strategy, we provide solutions, not just answers.
From our initial contact, we’re excited to move you forwards.
We will provide you with engineering solutions so you can get the most out of your business.
As we work together, we will also flag any other opportunities that you may not be aware of that would benefit your business.
We are always looking at your bigger picture and how we can help you maximise your business.
