Designed and assembled in the USA
In the 1950s, the company founder, George Bunn, was driven by the goal of making it simple and fast to brew a quality cup of coffee. He relentlessly designed, hand-assembled, tested, modified, and perfected prototypes.
Since then, the company’s equipment solutions have dramatically evolved, but one aspect of product innovation development has remained a part of our DNA: every equipment model is designed and/or tested by BUNN professionals in offices and labs in our Springfield, Illinois headquarters. Today, the company has a full portfolio that is rich with industry-leading, customer-driven patented solutions.
Many of our products are labeled "Assembled in the USA." What does this mean? The majority of all commercial equipment models are assembled at facilities in the USA. Some of the components for our products are also tooled in these same facilities. We strictly monitor suppliers of the components that are necessary to source from third parties to ensure they do not waiver from our safety and quality standards that result in the reliability for which BUNN has become known. Our company mission is to be the best provider of beverage equipment and services worldwide.
ISO Registered Quality Management System
BUNN strives for the highest level of customer satisfaction by utilizing a robust Quality Management System which encompasses all processes to design, manufacture and deliver products with the BUNN label. This Quality Management system is independently audited and certified to the ISO 9001:2015 Standard.
BUNN corporate headquarters is located in Springfield, Illinois, USA, where employees strive for total customer satisfaction through superior equipment and unmatched customer service with support from four additional United States locations, as well as warehouses or offices in Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Germany, China, UAE, and the United Kingdom.
History Behind the Brand
Over 170 years ago, Jacob Bunn opened his grocery store in a developing Springfield, IL, USA, and a young Abe Lincoln was one of the first customers. That venture grew into Bunn Capitol Wholesale Grocery Company and was later managed by George R. Bunn who founded a beverage equipment division in the late 1950's. Bunn-O-Matic Corporation was officially incorporated as a separate entity in 1963, and since that time has been at the forefront of dispensed beverage equipment manufacturers with a long list of innovations.
Today, the company remains privately held and family-owned. Arthur "Hy" Bunn has been the President and CEO since 1988, assuming overall management and leadership of the worldwide beverage equipment company that his father founded. During his tenure, the BUNN portfolio has evolved from a coffee focus to include dispensed beverage equipment for espresso, tea, juice, granita, filtered water, and many other specialty beverages. Founded upon five generations of family entrepreneurship, BUNN has become a partner you can count on for profitable, reliable beverage equipment and outstanding post-purchase support wherever customers are served.
