American Pan UK has become the latest associate member of the Federation of Bakers.

The business is part of the Bundy Baking Solutions group of companies, and supplies industrial bakeware and a glaze and pan maintenance service for the European bakery market.

Bundy Baking Solutions was founded in the US in 1964 as a family business that purchased and resold pre-owned bakery pans and equipment. In 2015, it expanded its pan sales and servicing to Europe with the opening of American Pan UK.

“We are looking forward to strengthening our relationship with the UK’s largest baking companies with the opportunities that our membership of the Federation of Bakers will bring for us as we continue to expand our business in the UK and Europe,” said American Pan UK key account manager Jordan Hughes.

Gordon Polson, director of the Federation of Bakers, added: “We are delighted to welcome American Pan UK as a new associate member, and hope to support them as they continue to grow their business.”

The Federation of Bakers has nine member companies running 34 bakeries in the UK.

Current federation associate members are AAK (UK), AB Mauri UK and Ireland, ADM Milling, Baker Perkins, British Bakels, Bühler, CCFRA, Cereform, CSM (UK), Edme, Energy Management LLP, GB Ingredients, Kaak Group, Kwik Lok, Lesaffre Group, NFU Mutual, Puratos, Spooner Industries, Taste Tech, United Bakery Equipment Co, Zeelandia and Zeppelin Systems.
