Baketech, Tucker, Ga., plans to merge into AMF Bakery Systems, Richmond, Va. Baketech is the wholesale baking industry’s supplier of continuous proofers, ovens and coolers.
“As Bob Miller and I approach our retirement, we were concerned about the future of our company and how to best position it to continue leading the industry in both technology and service,” says Geri Walker, president of Baketech. “The two of us, along with Stephen Smith, who will continue working for many years, were particularly concerned about our customers as well as the people who work at Baketech. We concluded that AMF was the best place to ensure the legacy we have worked over 20 years to create.”
