About Total Metal ProductsOur Company

Total Metal Products Ltd have in-house expertise in roll forming, stretch bending and piercing and punching of various components.

TMP’s core foundations are a team of very highly skilled personel, we have ‘in-house’ tool design / manufacture and build areas, this allows us to control projects very tightly and also allows us to react when necessary to customer requirements which rely on us to have complete control of our supply chain solution.

We have over 50 years experience in the automotive industry which enables us to come up with solutions from the basic and simple through to the more innovative high end production solutions. Furthermore, through our associated engineering services team we can also assess feasibility of customer produced component designs, both speeding up product development and also reducing tooling costs. Our core market is the UK – however we have exported to France / Italy / Germany / North America and China.


Total Metal Products Ltd was started by Steven Richards initially as a machine tool service solution and quickly grew to become a bespoke machine tool supplier to the automotive industry. 

This remains our core business, however, Total Metal Products success has also allowed for further expansion and growth into other areas, ultimately resulting in new business formations to control these new areas.

TMP Group now also includes TMP Manufacturing for the supply of aftermarket and low volume manufactured components for the automotive sectors, with customers ranging from OE, Tier 1 & 2.

The FutureWhat Next?

As our history shows that we have continually reinvested in the business and whilst working across the industry we have always remained closely allied to the automotive sector. We have however, over the last 12 months, branched into the aerospace sector. 

We are now also working on our second project for the Nuclear industry.

Total Metal Products is now part of the TMP Group – the group was formed to allow Total Metal Products to focus and grow on its core competences of Design and Manufacture of special purpose machine tools. Whilst TMP Manufacturing’s focus is on component manufacture..
