The Reading Bakery Systems brands – Thomas L. Green, Reading Pretzel, Exact Mixing and Reading Thermal – offer production lines capable of producing a wide range of snack products, automated continuous mixing systems and oven profiling and consulting services. Reading Bakery Systems’ expertise, innovative research and development and range of equipment is unmatched in the industry. We offer turnkey systems that reliably produce high volumes of snack products and support the installations long after the sale.
Our pretzel and snack expertise dates back to 1947 when E.I. Groff and H.S. Gipe partnered in the founding of Reading Pretzel Machinery and introduced the first commercially-successful automatic pretzel twisting machine. E. Terry Groff joined his father at Reading Pretzel Machinery in 1974, and years of patient innovation led to other problem solvers that are still with us today, such as low pressure extrusion, ultrasonic cutters, hot cookers, 2-pass baking systems, variable heat-flux ovens and multi-pass dryers. Today, Reading Pretzel continues to be an international leader and innovator of pretzel and snack systems.
