NTM was founded in 1950 by Lennart Nordin and currently has around 400 employees. It is an engineering company that develops, manufactures, sells and maintains transport equipment for heavy goods vehicles and refuse and recycling material collection vehicles. By adopting a goal-oriented approach to product development and quality, the NTM Group has evolved into one of the biggest players in the Nordic region. However, NTM’s market reach stretches beyond the Nordic countries, with the company having a presence in the UK, Russia, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland and the Baltic states. The Group’s parent company is based in Närpes on the Finnish west coast, and has subsidiaries in Sweden, Estonia, the UK and Poland.
The company’s success is based on three strengths: a customer-oriented approach, know-how and quality.
Each product must satisfy the operational requirements and special wishes of the customer. This principle serves as a starting point for NTM’s activities and is the reason why all our product development work is carried out in close collaboration with customers. Users receive turnkey products; refrigeration and heating units, tail lifts, etc. are installed in the factory and the product is ready for immediate use upon delivery.
The concept of customer orientation also encompasses a desire to offer the best possible level of service in relation to customer needs.
NTM’s know-how is a combination of professional knowledge, industry experience and dedication.
Since its inception more than 60 years ago, NTM has gone to great lengths to stress the importance of professional know-how. This is achieved by staff continually being presented with new challenges and requirements. We also work to develop a strong team spirit, each member of the team knowing their roles and feeling empowered to work towards achieving the company’s common objective – to develop and manufacture high quality products that are tailored to the needs of customers.
NTM works to ISO standards 9001 and 14001. NTM quality is achieved by applying a goal-oriented process that extends all the way from order to delivery. During the fabrication process, each component or product is put through a series of rolling checks. A thorough final inspection prior to delivery to the customer concludes the process.
NTM’s manufacturing programme
Bodies and trailers are the common denominator for NTM’s product range, which is made up of two different product groups:
- Bodies and trailers for vehicles such as vans, insulated refrigeration and freezer trailers (FNA, FRC), flatbed, enclosed body, container and timber trailers, and equivalent superstructures. All bodies are equipped and adapted according to the specific requirements of the customer.
- Refuse collectors, comprising a wide range of vehicles, from traditional rear loaders to side and front loaders, as well as a number of different variants and equipment alternatives, focusing particularly on units suitable for the collection of material sorted at source. These include multi-chamber vehicles, different types of bin lift and balance systems.
