API CERTIFIED AND DRIVEN TO EXCEL
Our diverse in-house machining capabilities allow Frontier’s products to be manufactured from raw stock in our Houston plant. We have a thorough testing, validation, and factory acceptance-check system that ensures all our products exceed specification and adhere to a rigid quality program, managed by API-certified personnel. Our capabilities give us the ability to control costs and deliver high-quality tools at exceptional prices.
Starting as an R&D facility, we wanted to control as much of the manufacturing process as possible to ensure a quality product. With that aim – we chose our equipment to cover the full manufacturing process to minimize outsourced activities. In fact, the only components of Frontier’s Oil Tools not produced in-house are plastic and rubber components.
With manufacturing established, we then aimed to streamline the efficiency of assembly and factory-acceptance testing through layout, tools, and a mobile FAT platform with closed-loop fluid control for hydro-static tests. This keeps us moving fast in fulfilling customer’s orders.
Our system is maintained by API Q1 certification. At Frontier, our warehouse managers, programmers, and machinist take pride in upholding the strict quality guidelines that API has laid out for us. API standards guarantee quality in our engineering design process.
