NTM-GB is an engineering company that develops, manufactures, sells, and maintains refuse and recycling material collection vehicles. By adopting a goal-oriented approach to product development and quality, NTM-GB has evolved into one of the biggest players in the UK Market. However, NTM’s market reach stretches beyond the UK, with the company having a presence in Finland, Russia, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Croatia, and the Baltic states.

The Group’s parent company is based in Närpes on the Finnish west coast. NTM was founded in 1950 by Lennart Nordin and the Group currently has around 650 employees and has subsidiaries in Sweden, Estonia, the UK, Russia, Germany, Poland, and Canada.

The company’s success is based on three strengths: a customer-oriented approach, know-how and quality.

At NTM, we take immense pride in delivering the finest experience for our customers when they purchase any of our vehicles.

Närpes Trä & Metall was founded on 27.4.1950 by Lennart Nordin together with Sigurd Lärka. At the beginning, the wooden products dominated because the metal side manufactured agricultural accessories, as well as repaired machines and cars. For a time, buses were also manufactured at NTM. In the mid-1950s, bodybuilding expanded. In 1954, the first car cabinet was delivered and the series production of cabinets in NTM was the first in Finland to build refrigerators and freezers.

Following success in the Nordic and Baltic regions NTM took the decision to form NTM-GB in 2003 where they soon became one of the market leaders in the supply of compaction and non-compaction refuse and recycling collection vehicles.

After eight years of successful business NTM-GB acquired the British firm ‘Link-Tip’ who specialised in polybody refuse solutions. In 2011, the opportunity to expand the production capacity and product range was seized when the LinkTip Kerbside Recycling Group became available to purchase. This gave NTM-GB its own 25,000 square foot production and installation facility in the heart of the West Midlands, along with the newly created NTM LinkTip Ltd portfolio; adding non-compaction vehicles from 3.5t and the innovative Polybody plastic bodied vehicles to the range.

We continued to grow, and our product range increased to include, ground level demount systems, food waste collection vehicles, lifting equipment, kerbside, side and rear loading refuse collection vehicles (RCV), and in 2008 the company launched the Polybody, the first plastic vehicle range.

Our growth rate in the UK has expanded and we began looking to increase our production capacity and LinkTip Kerbside Recycling and its facilities provided us with the perfect platform to build more body units and increase our large vehicle installation work. As a company we are now able to offer a complete range of products from 3.5 tonne tippers, non-compaction refuse vehicles right up to the largest vehicles in our range, including Front End Loaders and the four compartment NTM Quatro.

Further expansion began with the purchase of a 75,000m2 site in Kidderminster, Worcestershire in 2015. This is where all our vehicles are now produced.

NTM-GB has a vision to be the market leader of refuse and recycling collection vehicles whilst expanding on our exceptional customer service reputation. We value our customers and will endeavour to establish long-term relationships, supplying products which meet or exceed our customer's expectations for quality and service, which will be mutually beneficial for growth and prosperity.

As a business we continue to develop our extensive product portfolio which now includes all vehicle types ranging from 3.5t to 32t.

The NTM Quatro has a unique four-chamber solution in a single vehicle, with each chamber able to collect differing volumes and waste streams at the same time - The first truly four-in-one refuse collection solution.
