At NESCO / The Metal Ware Corporation, The Pan Handler® Fish Filleter is an example of one of the unique products that we manufacture here at our facility.

Engineered for ease of use, the Pan Handler is a safe and effective alternative to conventional methods of filleting pan fish. The user simply places the fish body on the guide plate, latches the upper and lower halves together, inserts the special twin blade knife, and then after a few strokes has two beautiful fillets. With compact dimensions of 12” in length x 6” in width x 5” in height, it is portable and easy to store.

We use various fabrication methods to manufacture the components from food-grade materials including ABS, polyethylene, aluminum, and steel. Quality construction is a vital aspect of keeping this device safe to use. We manufacture critical features, such as the spring action grippers and latching mechanism, with close tolerance precision to ensure they perform reliably and are not compromised by premature wear from repeated use. Ultrasonic welding of the plastic body components creates strong joints to exacting tolerances while minimizing the need for mechanical fasteners that are prone to loosen over time.

Each of the many components, as well as the final assembled product, is subject to rigorous test and inspection. Keeping tolerances as close as ±.005” assures accurately fitted parts and the robust construction that is a trademark of the brand name. We manufacture this product at the rate of approximately 2,500 units annually at cost profile that keeps is price-competitive.
