Project, Electrical, Mechanical, Control and Automation From Concept to Completion

Midland Automation Technology Ltd (MATL) was formed in 1993 and is a family-owned and well-organised limited company with many years of electrical, controls and automation experience in the industries of water and wastewater, biomass handling, energy from waste, chemicals, pharmaceutical, packaging and food. We also have resource available to develop Technical Reports, detailed drawings, 3D models, Operational Manuals and Maintenance Programs, and Training Packages.

Our aim is to be professional, approachable and flexible. We build up strong and long-lasting relationships with clients, but provide the level of confidentiality that should be expected from our type of business.

Our services can provide either a comprehensive support to supplement in-house resources at a range of levels and at various points in the project cycle, or a complete design solution from initial concept through to construction completion and beyond. Regardless of the role we play in a project, we are always keenly aware of the need to manage cost, time and quality.

Credentials and Focus

Our efforts have been successfully focused within part of contractor organizations to drive information management to a level where consistency of quality is targeted, unnecessary duplication or design errors eliminated, changes become less necessary due to earlier planning and an audit trail becomes a reality.

In terms of the delivery of a project, accurate information and assessment at an early stage ensures that delivery is on time, savings can be made, errors can be designed out rather than fixed at commissioning and the project is a winner. We are certified and actively operate systems both to ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015
