Our expertise and knowledge


In 1954, the company produced its first shaper called Sprint. This was a real revolution in the bakery world as at that time bakers had to shape dough by hand. The challenge was to automatically reproduce manual moulding.

The Sprint shaper was a horizontal shaper with a fixed table extension. Since then, MERAND has developed a complete range of shapers, dividers, intermediate proofers, scoring machines and automatic bread lines.

Its experience of almost 70 years is a tremendous asset serving bakers all over the world.

The entire MERAND team works with one goal in mind:

The optimisation of dough shaping. From the engineers in the design office, to the sales staff, technicians and production operators, their scope of action is focused on dividers, shapers, intermediate proofers and scoring machines.
