French bakery equipment manufacturer since 1922.

Company Overview

Since its founding in 1922, BONGARD has been strongly linked to bread and pastry-making history. Oscar Bongard, the company’s founder, started his business by repairing and maintaining ovens damaged during World War I. An engineer by training, he soon began designing ovens. The patented CERVAP deck oven, invented in 1967, is still in production today. In the early 1980s, BONGARD expanded its range of products to include mixing, proofing and conservation equipment. In 2007, PANEOTRAD®, a unique patented process for separating and shaping pieces of dough, revolutionized the bakery industry. This innovative machine saves up to 30% of working time while minimizing flour dust and respiratory issues. Thanks to its diversification and capacity for innovation, BONGARD has become an expert in global bread processing equipment.

Today, BONGARD is a valued partner in the baking and pastry-making industries. The company distributes products in over 140 countries; offers installation and repair support seven days a week, 365 days a year; and provides machine training in their showroom in Holtzheim, France, or in clients’ own bakeries worldwide. BONGARD’S high-performance production is complemented with innovative and energy-efficient solutions. Since January 2023, all their equipment — fitted with INTUITIV’2 and SENSITIV’2, the latest generations of electronic control panels — is progressively being connected to BONGARD CONNECT, a unique system of baking process management that allows remote control, analysis, repair and even the creation and synchronization of recipes.
