Fresh Metal provides sweet deal for chocolate hoppers

January 9, 2018

Full-service sheet metalwork manufacturer, Fresh Metal, has provided a series of large stainless-steel hoppers to be used by one of Britain’s biggest listed food companies, which manufactures brands that appear in 95% of British households.

In total, six large metal vats have been manufactured, each measuring 1.5 metres wide and 1.6 metres high. The hoppers will be filled with melted chocolate and situated in 2.2 metre-high frames, to create sweet treats for supermarkets across the country.

After drawing up the designs from a sample provided by the client using the latest CAD technology, Fresh Metal cut the shapes required out of sheets of stainless steel using its state-of-the-art laser cutting machinery. These laser-cut panels were then pressed and rolled in Fresh Metal’s press department, before being welded together to create the final form.

Charles Corner, managing director of Fresh Metal, said: “This project was a really exciting one, as the chocolate hoppers we manufactured will be used to create products sold in the majority of UK supermarkets.

“We continually strive to create the highest-quality products at cost-effective prices, along with providing unrivalled service. As this project proves, we truly are a one-stop-shop for reliable, innovative sheet metalwork.”

Fresh Metal specialises in providing a full sheet metalwork service, from laser cutting and pressing to fabricating, powder coating and assembly.
