Kempf opens a new Teflon® coating
line for industrial bakery solutions

Kempf GmbH, a partner of the "Teflon® coatings for Industrial Bakery Solutions" initiative, recently opened its new plant in Rohrbach, Germany, with a certified Teflon® coating production line for high quality baking moulds and trays. Fully automated, the production site has the capacity to coat more than 2,500 square metres per day of bakeware with Teflon® nonstick surfaces for industrial bakeries. The value of the overall investment in the new plant is approximately 3,500,000 Euros, with around 2,100,000 Euros of the total spent on new technical equipment.

"With our state of the art coating plant combined with the excellent Teflon® branded nonstick coatings and the knowledge of our highly skilled employees, we are able to serve our customers with top quality coated bakeware," said Guido Kempf, CEO of Kempf. He continued: "Our focus is always to automate our processes to guarantee the best quality in combination with competitive prices. Our unique selling point is that we can offer the complete package of producing industrial baking trays and pans, applying the latest types of non-stick coating and offering a complete re-coating service."

Initially focused on industrial bakery coating solutions for perforated trays suitable for pretzels (Teflon® coating S16), flat trays and slightly indented trays for buns and croissants (Teflon® coating F34), the facility is working with experts from Teflon® coatings on systems for many other products.

"Kempf has been our partner for more than five years now and a Teflon® coatings licensed Marketer for Industrial Bakery Solutions since 2011. This innovative production site proves the strategic and long-term value of our partnership," said Ian Fletcher, Business Manager Industrial Finishes EMEA at Chemours.

Teflon® coatings for Industrial Bakery Solutions (previously known as DIBS) offer high quality coating system solutions for trays and moulds for industrial bakeries, marketed under the Teflon® brand. Their value is to create new opportunities for industrial bakeries to increase productivity and to improve the hygiene and safety of their operations, whilst simultaneously enhancing the quality and nutritional benefit of the baking products via frequent auditing. Teflon® coatings for Industrial Bakery Solutions are exclusively manufactured and marketed by a network of licensed partners. Kempf is licensed both as a marketer and an applicator.

A family-owned company, Kempf GmbH has specialised in bakeware and coatings for the past 40 years. The company offers a complete range of industrial bakeware like baking and baguette trays (perforated and non-perforated), tin sets, nonstick coatings, baking and storage racks.

All Kempf products are made in Germany. In addition to the main markets in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, globalisation is becoming increasingly important. Exports account for approximately 50% of Kempf production volumes. The company predicts revenues of around 17 million Euros in 2015 and continuous growth for the next years.
