Chicago Metallic Bakeware has purchased pan and coating manufacturer Lockwood Manufacturing.
Per the deal, Brantford, Ontario-based Lockwood’s stock pan business and glaze plants will now be operated by PanGlo. Both the Chicago Metallic and PanGlo operations will be overseen by Robert Bundy who has been appointed managing director for the Canadian plants.
The company plans to upgrade all glaze plants including updating equipment, switching to AMERICOAT Plus silicone release coating and establishing PanGlo service standards. New stock pan selections from Chicago Metallic will be available to Canadian customers through the Brantford, Ontario warehouse. American Pan, manufacturer of custom industrial baking pans, will serve Lockwood’s custom-made baking pan customers.
"We are thrilled with this new venture and the opportunity to build lastingrelationships in the Canadian market and we look forward to offering these bakeries the benefits of our products and services," Bundy said in a statement.
