Founded as a family business in the heart of the North American breadbasket, Bundy Baking Solutions has become a global industry leader serving many of the worlds largest and most successful bakeries.
Russell T. Bundy Associates, Inc. was founded by Russell Bundy in 1964 to engage in the purchase and resale of pre-owned bakery pans and equipment. RTB originated in Columbus, OH and later relocated to Urbana, OH due to the need for additional space and growth potential.
Our Founder, Russell T. Bundy
Russell, one of the most prominent people in the baking industry, began his career with Ekco/Glaco—then a leading manufacturer of baking pans and coating services. By age 25, Russ had risen to become the companys national sales manager. His entrepreneurial spirit soon beckoned him to launch RTB, what would eventually become part of Bundy Baking Solutions and its six family brands. In 2006, Russell was honored as an industry leader by being recognized in the inaugural class of inductees into the Baking Hall of Fame.
One of his long-time passions has been to collect the memorabilia and historical artifacts of the baking industry. He has created a remarkable museum dedicated to his collection, which is housed in Urbana, OH. The Bundy Baking Museum is indeed a fitting tribute to the industry that has fueled Russ entrepreneurial passion for more than 60 years.
+ Pan Glo
In 1975, the first Pan Glo plant was opened in Urbana, OH to provide bakeries with quality pan cleaning and recoating services. Tom Bundy, president of Pan Glo, joined the family business in 1976 and has since worked in nearly every aspect of the operation, from shipping and receiving to sales and marketing.

The Bundy family then ventured beyond reselling pre-owned pans into manufacturing new. In 1985, Gilbert Bundy led the formation of American Pan to meet a growing worldwide demand for high quality, custom baking pans.
