Middleby Corporation recently announced the acquisition of GBT Bakery Technology (GBT), a company based in Lünen, Germany. With a focus on engineering and manufacturing high-grade industrial baking and bread lines, GBT brings in annual revenues of approximately €10 million.

The company offers specialty bread systems, tunnel ovens, conveyor baking systems, as well as dough dividers, weighers, and proofers.

Additionally, GBT provides comprehensive customer service, including project conception and management, manufacturing, assembly, training, maintenance, and service. These systems, products, and services will enhance the capabilities of Middleby Bakery full line solutions.
