About V. M. Choppy and Sons, LLC
V. M. CHOPPY & SONS, LLC has been providing quality fabricating services for over 30 years to the Capital District and beyond. We strive to be at the forefront of the sheet metal fabrication industry, and so we are constantly upgrading our machinery and facilities.

We are a family-owned, full service operation that can handle your job from start to finish, including fabrication, assembly, coating, packaging, and delivery. Our turn-of-the-century 30,000 square foot facility is located in a southern portion of the historic City of Troy, New York, not far from the Hudson River. The present City of Troy was home to the Mohican Indians. The Mohican chief was Uncas, “made immortal in name by the novelist, James Fenimore Cooper, in the “Last of the Mohicans.” ~ George Baker Anderson – “Landmarks of Rensselaer County”
V.M Choppy and Sons also strives to be environmentally friendly.
We have over 400 solar panels installed on our facility roof,
creating electricity to power our shop and reducing our carbon footprint.
In 2014 we produced an average of 4,619 kWh per month.
In addition we avoid, on average, over 12,000 pounds of CO2 emissions per month.
We believe in being a good neighbor and
keeping the skies above Troy, NY that much cleaner.
Vince Choppy and his wife Anne founded V. M. Choppy & Sons in their Voorheesville garage in 1978 when Vince began welding together wood-burning stoves for his friends and neighbors. Two years and 200 stoves later, the business expanded to include aftermarket auto body panels and sheet-metal animal feeders.
Today V. M. Choppy & Sons employs more than thirty fabricators, welders, and craftsmen in a 30,000 square-foot plant on Van Buren Street in South Troy.
When asked the secret of their success, Vince and Anne point to “hard work and a commitment to customer relationships.” Vince feels he has consistently shown clients how to improve product solutions in a more cost-effective way with improved quality. “This is the value-added component that keeps customers coming back and referring others.”
Vince and Anne’s two sons, Vincent J. (Vinny) and Matthew J. (Matt), have been active in the family sheet metal fabrication business since adolescence. Vinny handles estimating and purchasing, and Matt is the plant maintenance, shipping, and receiving supervisor.
