Finn represents the very highest standards of coating and polishing of chocolate confectionery.

We remain market leaders in belt coating and polishing and benefit from unrivalled customer loyalty of which we are very proud.

Today with hundreds of belt coaters in reliable daily operation globally, we continue to set standards with machines that increase production and lower the labour costs and training in panning environments.
