The federal government’s grant will be used to upgrade the Frontline machining department, which in recent years had allegedly fallen behind the capabilities across the rest of the company.

Recently, Frontline Manufacturing created a new factory to grow capabilities to contribute to phases 2 and 3 of the LAND 400 program, including a new break press, laser cutter and plasma cutter.

“As a full-service shop, Frontline needed to upgrade its CNC department to keep pace with the improvements elsewhere in the business. The company chose to partner with Samsung and procure a new 4 Axis Machining Centre and a new Multi Axis Lathe with a high speed bar feeder, increasing speed and accuracy, and reducing downtime,” said Daniel Green, director of Frontline Manufacturing.

Frontline founder Matthew Ellis reiterated that “as tool maker by trade, we always like to get our hands on new toys but this is really a lot more than that. These two machines will give the company an enormous boost with the overseas customers from whom we are seeking more business. Having the Commonwealth behind us in this long and arduous endeavour is a massive support”.
