About us

MST Parts Group is considered the UK leader in the earthmoving spare parts market and is the trusted supplier to most of the major earthmoving machinery operators working in the UK.

Our Manufacturing Department also designs and builds some of the world’s largest buckets and attachments.

For some 50 years, we’ve demonstrated our unshakeable commitment to earth moving. The bedrock of our approach is made up of five pillars:

Quality Products

For many years, we’ve been the authorised distributor of choice for some of the world’s leading manufacturers. We’ve invested time and effort in nurturing new relationships in order to continually add to our list of products.

We’re also a manufacturer in our own right, building heavy duty mining and dredging buckets through our manufacturing division HSM. Now part of the ITR agroup and family, USCO SPA §our industry-leading position offers the most extensive stock in the UK and worldwide, with the additional financial benefits to our customers of dealing directly at source.

Service and Repair

We operate four stock and service depots in Durham, Glasgow, Guildford and Birmingham. Together with our broad team of sales area engineers and internal sales support, we’re able to offer nationwide coverage. Helping to get machinery back on track with minimum downtime and cost guaranteed.

We work at pace to respond to our customers’ needs in earthmoving machinery. Supplying undercarriage, wear parts and rubber tracks, services and repairs in a timely and professional manner. First time. Every time.

The Right Teams

Our family values have been the guiding light for our business over some 50 years. We recognised early on that exceptional customer service could only come from recruiting the most skilled and expert individuals on the ground and across the UK. An ethos that continues to this day.

Bigger Together

In 2014, we became the UK’s sole authorised distributor of ITR undercarriage parts which brought together ITR’s world-leading components with MST’s exceptional approach to customer service.

In 2019, our partnership was consolidated further when ITR, part of the global USCO Group, acquired MST. We’re now part of USCO ITR’s Worldwide Team, which is considered the global leader in the manufacture of undercarriage, GET and repair parts.

Working to its company mantra ‘Team Builds Power’, ITR offers MST customers access to the world’s most extensive range of innovative parts plus world-class support through its thirty strategically located global distribution centres.

Keeping You on Track 

Our products offer outstanding quality and reliability which guarantee superior performance. You can be assured of maximum value and wear life with the added peace of mind that you’re dealing with a worldwide market leader.

Our Story

50 years and counting…

MST’s beginnings were humble ones. The founding owner, Ken Whitehall, established the business as a steel stockholder in Walsall, the West Midlands in 1963.

The company began manufacturing undercarriages after moving to the banks of the River Tyne in the North East in 1971. Our first service centre in Washington, County Durham served local plant hire and civil engineering companies.

Our early focus on quality and expertise has continued to be the catalyst for the company’s growth over a 50-year period.

For an ever-burgeoning UK and global customer base, MST is the first port of call for machinery spare parts. From the smallest mini excavator to the world’s largest mining machines, our expert team can tailor solutions that meet the needs of a constantly evolving world of earthmoving.

In 2014, we became the UK’s sole authorised distributor of ITR undercarriage parts which brought together ITR’s world-leading components with MST’s exceptional approach to customer service.

In 2019, our partnership was consolidated further when ITR, part of the global USCO Group, acquired MST. We’re now part of ITR’s (USCO’s) Worldwide Team, which is considered the global leader in the manufacture of undercarriage, GET and repair parts.

The partnership offers huge benefits for our customers through optimised lead times, reduced logistics costs and access to exemplary after-sales service.

Today, our bedrock of family passion and pride continues under the management team headed by the great grandson of the original owner, Rory Whitehall.
