Over the course of many years, Hoppel Fabrication has been diligently expanding our Prototype and Product Development Services. Many businesses have a need for "Working Prototypes" to serve as proof of concept models before investors are willing to commit to an end product. We offer a focused approach to INNOVATIVE DESIGN along with our abilities to design and execute custom metal fabrication, welding skills, combined with many years of experience in research and development we have an exceptional ability to TURN KEY the entire project from start to finish. This methodology has enabled greater opportunities for us to partner with our clients in an effort to better serve their customers and develop products for niche markets within their specific industry. We are happy to announce we have been Officially Awarded 20 Patentsconsidered Inventions of Proprietary Intellectual Property and still have many that are in the pending process.



January 15, 2016 marked the debut of the original prototype SwitchLift Trailer. It serves as a self contained total solution trailer identified as Best In Class for each function it performs. From mobilizing machinery, supplies or equipment with a flatbed body to serving as the best dump trailer you can buy with a dump body. Designed to reduce operating costs while focusing on productivity, you may use your current pickup to tow the Switchlift Trailer enabling you to do more with less. The SwitchLift served as a working prototype for 2016 paving the way for the next design to offer a variety of capacities and accessory options. The next prototype is currently in development for the next generation and set to launch as our next product line in 2017. For more details and specs on this multi functional piece of equipment visit our SwitchLift page.

This area is reserved for our most recently completed project and allows us to shine the Spotlight on our customers. We want to express our sincere appreciation to Damian Kovarik for allowing us the opportunity to design and customize his Mac Truck. He is the owner of Kovarik Excavating and Hauling located in Jewett Ohio and definitely had a vision in mind on transforming his truck into the workhorse it has currently become. Classified as one of our “Heavy Duty Specialty Trucks” it was custom built to Damian's specifications in an effort to meet and exceed the constant challenging demands of the excavating and hauling industry. We want to thank Damian for his continued loyalty and earning his trust as his custom truck fabricator and will reveal another truck that will be entering his fleet very soon !
