1965 Elias, with the help of his son, Robert decided to devote
himself to his true interest, the refurbishing and designing
of bakery equipment and established Bakery Equipment &
Service Company. His flour tortilla machines were well received in the Mexican
market place which flourished until the Great Peso Devaluation
in the late 1970's.
It was in the mid 1970's that Robert ventured into designing
tortilla machines for restaurant use. The Escamillas successfully
spread sales of tortilla equipment across growing U.S. and
overseas markets where Mexican food was quickly becoming as
standard fare as hamburgers and pizza.
BE&SCO is still family owned and being run by Robert
Escamilla, spreading the mechanical rhythm of BE&SCO's
high quality flour tortilla equipment, capturing the interest of restaurant and
grocery patrons as far as Europe, Taiwan, Canada and South
