WHO WE ARE AND WHERE WE CAME FROM
UTM was founded in 2000 with a mission to provide a safe training ammunition that would allow military, law enforcement and professional training organizations to ‘train as they fight’ in immersive and authentic training environments and disciplines. With this in mind, the original zinc round was introduced to the market with such success that UTM was sold in 2003 to its current owners, JEB Engineering Design Ltd (to then form the UTM World Holdings Group), a precision engineering and high volume manufacturing firm whose founders also had a passion for weaponry and accuracy. The new ownership put their exceptional engineering skills to work and developed a completely new and improved aluminum round, replacing the zinc ammunition.
The new design, quality control, craftsmanship and engineering advancements proved more than successful when it was tested by the US military and achieved a 99.8% reliability and safety rating in 2007 and every year since – making it the highest rated non-lethal training ammunition on the market, with the added benefit of being fully U.S. EPA approved land fill safe, low emission and non-toxic primers available – resulting in a major US Department of Defense contract for their Close Combat Mission Capability Kit (CCMCK).
Having created an extremely advanced non-lethal training ammunition, UTM understood their products had far wider implications on how militaries, agencies and professional organizations trained. With unparalleled technology, training methodologies and products – field tested and proven – the UTM System is the most effective, immersive and greenest in the industry. A truly integrated solution where industry professionals can train as never before.

The UTM training concepts utilizing NLTA are not just applicable to scenario training, but across the board to include live-fire, combatives and tactics. Their mission was, and still is, to change how people are training industry-wide, through proven real-world immersion methodologies, specifically designed to be easily adaptable and utilized throughout the training cycle – beginning with the fundamentals of marksmanship through the practice of advanced skills in a dynamic environment with stress inoculation. The system allows for cross discipline training exercises, such as integrating firearms into combatives and tactics training, to maximize the effectiveness of the overall program – allowing trainees to actually face ‘real scenarios’ they will encounter in the line of duty – not static targets and ‘virtual’ weaponry.
