Frontline doubles size of flagship plant to meet ‘dramatic’ increase in demand


Frontline has completed an expansion of its flagship plant in Ohio, in response to a ‘dramatic’ increase in international and domestic sales.

Frontline International has doubled the size of its headquarters in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio to 30,000 sq ft, which will allow for faster product turnaround and faster delivery to meet its recent demand growth.

The expansion includes larger fabrication and welding departments and vastly increased warehouse space.

“We’re excited about our current growth trajectory,” said 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 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.
