Frontline Finishes Expansion of Flagship Plant
In response to dramatic increases in international and domestic equipment sales as well as growth spurred by new initiatives, Frontline International has completed an expansion project doubling the size of its headquarters in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. With the facility now totaling 30,000 square feet, the company anticipates customers will realize immediate benefits from the increased space, including faster product turnaround and faster delivery.
The expansion touches virtually every aspect of Frontline’s business, highlighted by significantly larger fabrication and welding departments and vastly increased warehouse space. The expanded manufacturing and warehousing capacity positions the company to better respond to the needs of customers globally.
“We’re excited about our current growth trajectory,” says John Palazzo, president of Frontline International. “Customers globally are responding to our message of safe, sustainable, and profitable cooking oil use. This larger facility helps us serve our customer base even better than before and gives us the capacity to continue reaching into new markets. We will continue growing strategically to anticipate demand.”
Frontline moved to the Cuyahoga Falls location in 2010 after previously being based in nearby Barberton, Ohio. At that time, company officials mindfully designed the plant to be modular to easily respond to future growth. Palazzo anticipates additional expansions in the future as demand for Frontline grows and new programs such as OilCare, a turnkey initiative that bundles cooking oil management services with fixed monthly equipment leases, continue to gain popularity.
