Frontier Group Launches New Chemical Processing Line

Frontier Group, an Arizona-based provider of aerospace metal finishing services including NADCAP-accredited chemical processing, non-destructive testing, and welding, announced recently the official reopening of its Phoenix chemical processing facilities. The company began a complete transformation of its Phoenix chemical processing area in 2018, with the objective of upgrading its facilities with state-of-the-art equipment and increasing capacity. Now complete, over $1.5M was invested into the modernized chemical processing line.

Andrew Furrer, President of Frontier Group, commented, “We’re thrilled to unveil our new chemical processing line at our Phoenix facility. It was critical for us to invest significant capital in the highest quality equipment and newest technology available in the market to continue providing unrivalled service to our long-standing customers. We look forward to showcasing our enhanced chemical processing capabilities and supporting the aerospace industry with more expertise than ever.”

Founded in 1979, Frontier Group was formed via the 2018 merger of two established aerospace metal finishing companies, based in Phoenix, AZ and Chino Valley, AZ, respectively. Today, Frontier Group employs 70 people and operates from both locations with facilities that total more than 40,000 square feet of capacity. This dual-location model, unique for the industry, allows the company to offer its comprehensive services, including anodize, chem film, paint, passivation, phosphate, non-destructive testing, and welding, across Arizona, southern California and other states in the southwestern U.S.

Furrer continued, “The renewed focus on chemical processing in Phoenix, in addition to several planned and new service offerings for both facilities, positions Frontier Group for further growth. With accelerated growth, we expect to expand our employee base by more than 20% over the next 12 months. We’re excited by the company’s prospects and eager to continue serving as a high-quality employer both in Phoenix and Chino Valley.”

Frontier Group is owned in partnership by management and Montage Partners, a people-first private equity firm dedicated to helping established businesses reach transformative growth.
