He has chosen to return to Baker Perkins after eight years working for other companies in the industry.
Gerard worked in a similar role at Baker Perkins for five years until 2011. His appointment follows the recent return of David Welch as chief engineer for the biscuit business at Baker Perkins.
Gerard says, “We have completed new design projects in key areas, including a patented servo-driven wirecut, a new rotary moulder, a sheet forming and cutting system, the new HiCirc oven, and an encapsulation system for filled cookies and bars. They can transform performance, minimise costs and add brand new products to a range.”
The Baker Perkins’ range of TruClean™ forming equipment is designed to meet stringent standards of hygienic design, which not only enables cleaning to be more effective but also faster, reducing downtime and speeding up changeovers.
