Vetchberry Coil Processing Division
Evolution and Transformation
Vetchberry has evolved in recent years from a highly successful narrow coil processing business into a comprehensively equipped coil service centre, as part of a multi-million pound investment programme in wide coil processing which has propelled it to the forefront of fast, efficient production of stainless steel and aluminium flat products.
The ability to produce these materials up to 1850 mm wide, and in thicknesses between 0.3 mm and 6.0 mm has transformed the supply chain profile and enables the business to reach out to new markets with a unique value proposition, backed by some of the most modern facilities in Europe and unrivalled logistical support from the wholly owned thyssenkrupp Materials Logistics UK fleet of trucks, which delivers on a daily basis to all parts of the UK.
thyssenkrupp Materials UK offers innovative and cutting-edge features driven by our passion to deliver quality results to our clients on time. With our industry experience, cutting-edge rotary slitting knives, high-level skill operators and warehouse logistics, we are able to offer high-quality coil slitting services with the highest standard, efficiency and accuracy. We are able to produce strips in both aluminium and stainless steel and we have the capacity to run small, single runs to larger multiple coil operations. After slitting the coil, our team will recoil the finished material and band the narrow coils.
304 (1.4301), 301 (1.4310), 321 (1.4541), 316/L (1.4401/1.4404), 430 (1.4016), 201 (1.4372)

Vetchberry can supply traverse wound coil in a thickness range from 0.6 mm up to 3.00 mm thick and in widths between 10 mm and 60mm wide, in all grades of steel. With 4 modern traverse winding lines on site and over 20 years’ experience in this type of processing, we can offer you the opportunity to benefit from our experience. Traditional 'pancake' coils at narrow widths often have the disadvantage of restricted outside diameter, resulting in short coil lengths.
For continuous feed applications, e.g. presswork , there is a growing demand for longer running feedstock.
Why stop your production six times to repeatedly load traditional 'pancake coils' when you could do it once with traverse wound coils supplied by Vetchberry?
We can offer 2 inside coil diameters: 16" (406 mm) or 20" (508 mm).
We can also offer in-line deburred edges on certain sizes of traverse wound coil.
Vetchberry offers a complete range of poly-coated surface protection solutions, together with paper interleaving of metal surfaces where appropriate.
Vetchberry produces a wide variety of belt and brush finishes in stainless steel from two coil to coil polishing lines, complete with surface protection capabilities. The output is supplied either for direct delivery from wide coil form, or to feed in-house slitting and blanking production of polished material in narrow coil and cut lengths.
1 Abrasive Belt Polishing Line
1 Brush Polishing Line
Width/Finish: Belt up to max 850 mm wide
Brush up to max 625mm wide
Vetchberry have a dedicated team and in-house mill production facilities to offer temper rolled strip in various hardness ranges and specifications. The mill is capable of rolling a wide variety of thicknesses and tempers to suit the most demanding applications. Material can be supplied with sheared slit edges, and also in deburred/dressed conditions.
A tension levelled product can also be offered where flatness is critical.
Gauge Range: 0.20 mm up to 3.0 mm
Hardness Range: 1/4 hard - 1/2 hard - 3/4 hard - full hard
VPN Ranges: TR 230 - TR 280 - TR 330 - TR 380 - TR 430
We can also offer custom rolled to encompass your specific hardness ranges.
Material can be supplied in sheared slit edges, also deburred/dressed conditions.
Vetchberry can supply a range of dressed edges, including de-burred and fully rounded profiles, on certain sizes from its precision edge dressing line.
There is a growing market demand for safe edged material, and this is something which we can offer.
Cut to Length
Vetchberry has developed its long established expertise in narrow blanking and, over the last five years, has expanded production to cover progressively wider widths in aluminium and stainless steel.
The recent addition of a new wide de-coiling line, complete with precision leveller and output air stacker, enhances a growing market presence with a width capability of up to 1500 mm, enabling further market growth.
5 blanking lines
Gauge: From 0.3 mm up to 6.0 mm
Width: up to 1500 mm
Lengths: 50 mm up to 6000 mm
