When our family first pioneered and settled the Oklahoma territory back in 1895, our “word” was a business guarantee. A guarantee of trust, pride, tradition. Many of our values are just as important today as they were back then. Hard work. Fairness. Honesty. They are not taken for granted.
"Our traditional philosophy has not changed over time. At Burford, we’re still producing the best bakery equipment since Earl Burford and son, Charles, invented the first ‘twist tie’ machine in 1961. We’ve built a corporation and reputation on our values, and intend to keep it that way." - Charles Burford
