Hostess Brands Revives Emporia, KS with Technology Transplant

Baking and Snack
To pull off what was called “the sweetest comeback in the history of ever,” Hostess Brands needed more than revitalization … it needed reanimation. Three years after flat-lining, the company’s flagship bakery in Emporia, KS, now cranks out more than 9 million individual Twinkies and almost as many CupCakes every week in a state-of-the art facility that’s in constant motion, outputting products with speed and precision. …

Following the installation of two Auto-Bake Serpentine systems; E.T. Oakes mixing, depositing and cooling equipment; and Delta, Kliklok-Woodman, Pearson and Propack packaging and robotic technology, Emporia now produces more than 50% of total company output for Hostess. And that includes all Twinkies.
