Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, today announced that Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc. has installed a Boon Edam Tourlock security revolving door at its new corporate office in Chambersburg, PA.

For the first time in nearly 30 years, all administrative departments, comprising 80 plus employees, of Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc. (“Martin’s”) are located in one building, a new corporate headquarters recently built adjacent to the current bakery on 1000 Potato Roll Lane. This recent expansion is the 8th time Martin’s has expanded its facility. The Phase 8 building project includes the following improvements:

  • A new corporate office, approximately 43,000 square feet
  • Approximately 145,000 square feet of warehouse space
  • Air conditioning in the new warehouse and bakery
  • Major site work creating new entrances and truck traffic flow on campus

An essential component of the newly-constructed building is the walking bridge that connects the corporate offices to the bakery. All employees will enter the bakery through the administration building using the new Boon Edam revolving door. This is a security and safety improvement, but it is also a cultural commitment that Martin’s employees are working together to bake the best products and provide the best sales distribution support in a safe environment. The safety and security of the bakery premises is required by regulations that food production companies like Martin’s must strictly adhere to.

The Martin’s Facilities Department wanted the quality of its entrance to reflect the quality of the company and its excellent bread products. A Boon Edam Tourlock revolving door was chosen for the primary entrance to the building because it is secure using radio frequency identification and it has the all-important ability to reject tailgating attempts.

“Keeping food safety and general manufacturing processes in mind, we want to know who is on the bakery floor; security is part of the policy and something that is always top-of-mind,” commented Kevin Franzoni, Facility Manager for Martin’s. “We liked the Boon Edam door because the company specializes in these type of doors, and it requires RFID access to enter.”

The new building opened in July and the entrance was installed at that time. The Human Resources Department provided training and orientation for employees on door operation. “The Boon Edam entrance addresses our major concern about tailgating, we’re pleased.” said Franzoni.
