Many of the world’s safety-critical processes are monitored, controlled or protected by MTL products and the Group is distinguished by its global network of sales and support centres and by its acknowledged position as a thought leader in this high technology marketplace. MTL has recently developed solutions which enable process control systems to be devolved from the control room onto the process plant itself giving benefits of improved control integrity and cost savings. This has involved the combination of the Group’s four core technologies – Intrinsic Safety, Surge Protection, Visualisation and Open Control Platforms.
