Hoppe appoints new technical manager

Robert Mottram, technical manager in HOPPE's ARRONE team

Leaders of Hoppe have appointed Robert Mottram as a technical manager within the firm’s Arrone team. Robert has nearly 10 years of experience working within the door industry, and has joined Hoppe from Robust UK, where he worked as research and development manager.

“My new role is focused on product performance and ensuring that all fire-rated Arrone products have up-to-date fire test evidence to support certificates,” said Robert. “I have a lot of experience with fire doors and the associated hardware.

“In my previous role, I was involved in the preparation for the regulations that came into force in November 2019 regarding the CE marking of fire-rated external doorsets.

“I’ll be working closely with test labs and independent third-party certification schemes such as Certifire, as well as with door manufacturers to ensure that we have the right hardware and test evidence for use with their products.

“I’m incredibly passionate about training and development so it’s great to be part of an organisation and team that is equally committed.

“I am part of the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers’ (GAI) education committee and I’m currently doing the GAI Diploma in door systems having completed my Certificate in Architectural Hardware in 2020.”
