GEA set to become a major force in the bakery sector

18 May 2016

Following the recent acquisition of Imaforni, a supplier of cracker, soft and hard biscuit lines, GEA says it has now completed its entry into the bakery market. 

Last year GEA company acquired Comas, a supplier of top-level equipment and production lines for cakes, pies, cookies, layer cakes, pastry, pizza and selected bread applications.

With these two latest additions the company says that it is now able to provide turnkey systems for a wide range of products, from mixing to packaging by using proprietary technology and full line integration. It says that quality, reliability and consistency are key differentiators in this competitive market and it chose to acquire companies with a reputation for high efficiency, especially for high-volume applications; engineering excellence resulting in exceptional reliability and low downtime; and high quality products with absolute repeatability across the range.

The company hopes that this technological pedigree, combined with the operational know-how gained through many years of process experience, R&D facilities and global back-up will be a winning combination within the bakery production sector.
