New Touchscreen Control Panels Added to Frontline International’s Waste Oil Tanks

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, May 22, 2019

New Touchscreen Control Panels Added to Frontline International’s Waste Oil Tanks

Upgraded tech brings ease of use, new features and capabilities

May 22, 2019—Waste oil tanks are not created equal. Tanks from Frontline International already lead the industry, and now they’ve gotten even better with the addition of upgraded touchscreen control panels—featuring easy-to-read displays, new capabilities, and advanced tech compatibility. The sleek interface ushers in a new era of classy, clean, and fine design as part of Frontline’s modern foodservice equipment line-up.

A Frontline waste oil tank is a valuable part of creating a safer workplace, greatly minimizing the risk of accidents and hazards due to oil handling while enhancing sustainability and oil reclamation/recycling efforts. The control panel is how users customize tank functions, adjusting or programming specific settings to get the best value. The new touchscreen control panel signals the kitchen of tomorrow through technology that improves operations by making a tough, messy job easier and cleaner.

The new touchscreen has digital versions of instruction manuals stored for convenient call-up, a self-test mode and other troubleshooting capabilities, and generates reports that are downloadable to a jump drive. Newly designed graphs and icons make it easier for operators to understand data. Other new features include oil usage set points and the ability to track fresh oil in and out.

Using the password-protected touchscreen, users have clear and immediate access to information about system type, tank status, and tank level in an easy-to-read graphic display. Advanced settings control the opening and closing of the collection valve, service intervals, and issue an alert when the tank reaches 75% capacity. As an added safety feature, when 100% full, automatic protections will not allow the tank to accept any more oil.

As always, all Frontline International tanks can be synched to Frontline’s exclusive M3 data management system for remote, web-based access to all features and functions. M3 gives users total control to monitor, measure, and manage oil use—tracking usage by store unit, with the ability to monitor collection volumes and compare statistics on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.

Branded Group Commemorates World FM Week with Scholarship Announcement

Funding for Technical School Student to Help Bridge the Workforce Gap

Orange, CA. (May 17th, 2019) – In celebration of World FM Week, Branded Group, Inc has announced an annual scholarship commitment of $2,500 to a student at Brownson Technical School, an HVAC Excellence accredited school; one of just five in Calif. Brownson’s program is designed to train and certify HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration) technicians in just ten months.

“As a facility maintenance company, we recognize the need for skilled talent in the facility maintenance trades, such as HVAC,” Michael Kurland, Branded Group CEO said. “It is our intention, with this scholarship, to support a Brownson student who is seeking to further their HVAC career. Brownson is an impressive technical school where 89% of graduates find work in the field of HVAC within one year of graduating.”

Brownson is the only school that offers Direct Digital Controls, which are computerized controls for industrial, commercial, and home installations. They offer building performance training and boast a 12,000 square foot HVAC lab, one of the largest in Southern California.

According to the International Facility Management Association, World FM Day is about recognition for the facility management profession. It’s a time to bring the behind-the-scenes heroes of the facilities environment into the limelight and share well-deserved thanks for keeping our facilities healthy, safe and productive.

Although World FM Day is May 15th, IFMA encourages celebrations throughout the month, especially during the week of May 13-17.

Let’s Pave is one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces 2019

Let’s Pave is one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces 2019

OAK BROOK, Illinois (May 16, 2019) – Let’s Pave LLC, a national provider of specialized paving services and solutions, today announced the company has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2019 in the fast-growing private company sector.

The Best Workplaces list appears in the June 2019 issue of Inc. magazine and is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits.

Each nominated company participated in an employee survey, conducted by Omaha’s Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data. All employers were ranked using a composite score of survey results.

The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work including recognition and performance management. With a strong focus on synergy and collaboration, Let’s Pave was among the highest ranked employers out of the nearly 2000 surveyed.

“It’s no accident that our company name evokes collective action. At Let’s Pave, we believe it takes a team to accomplish great things,” said C.B. Kuzlik, president. He continued, “Our team regards each other as family and achieving this honor is a testament to our close-knit culture. I feel so fortunate to work alongside people that genuinely appreciate each other and enjoy our life’s work.”

While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes among winning workplaces including providing health insurance, offsite retreats to relax and recharge, and rewards for length of service.

"With today's tight labor market, building a great corporate culture is more important than ever,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief James Ledbetter. “The companies on Inc.'s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from."

Heritage Parts Announces Exclusive Distribution Agreement with LoggerFlex

Posted By Administration, Friday, May 17, 2019

Heritage Parts Announces Exclusive Distribution Agreement with LoggerFlex

FORT WAYNE, Indiana – May 16, 2019 – Heritage Parts announced today that it has launched a partnership with LoggerFlex, offering exclusive distribution of the company’s smart monitoring devices to US-based chain and institutional accounts and service companies.

LoggerFlex, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, manufactures “buns,” or data recorder-alarm hybrid systems. These units continually measure environmental parameters, such as temperature or relative humidity (RH), at desired intervals. If the temperature or RH exceed or fall below the desired limit, operators will receive a text message and email notification eliminating the need for manual monitoring.

“This partnership is a bit of a departure from our traditional OEM relationships in that we aren’t selling a replacement part, but a solution to help foodservice customers better manage refrigeration,” said Erik Koenig, VP of strategic marketing & product content with Heritage. “As parts experts, Heritage is looking to offer customers these types of innovative products because we know maximizing the equipment’s performance is just as important as maximizing uptime by ensuring the use of 100% Genuine OEM parts.”

Operated by an ultralong-life battery, the LoggerFlex bun stores all records in its internal memory and uploads them in the cloud-based application. The records are accessible on any platform via web-based application and available to view and download in PDF or Excel formats.

“We believe technology should make life easier, not more complicated! Our mission is to make advanced measurement technology easily accessible and simply usable for everyone. We provide smart solutions to make things easier for people in the food industry,” said Arash Aharpour, executive director of LoggerFlex.

He continued, “Heritage Parts, with a valuable treasure of experience, deep knowledge about users’ requirements and vast network of distribution channels, is the best ally for us to fulfill our mission. The synergy from our alliance could help services and products evolve and thrive in alignment with customers’ needs and expectations and increase food safety for everyone.”

LoggerFlex products can be purchased through Heritage at  https://www.heritageparts.com/Manufacturers/loggerflex. For more information on LoggerFlex, visit https://loggerflex.com/.

About Heritage Parts

Founded in 1987, Heritage Parts is North America’s leading provider of 100% Genuine OEM replacement parts for commercial and institutional kitchen equipment. The success of the Heritage Parts Expert team sets it apart due to its unmatched customer service and evolution of technology solutions for the foodservice industry.

DWM Cares Raises Over $20,800 for MS Society

Posted By Administration, Monday, May 6, 2019

DWM Cares Raises Over $20,800 for MS Society

DWM Technician Network Partners with DWM to Sponsor MS Society For 3rd Annual Event

LATHAM, NY -  DWM Comprehensive Facility Solutions launched its third annual Dare to Beat MS campaign earlier this Spring. Through a partnership with their national technician network, DWM Cares (DWM's charitable works committee) raised $20,885 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, bringing the company's three-year fundraising total to $48,570!

With many ties to Multiple Sclerosis, DWM named the MS Society as partner in giving in 2014. Since then,  DWM Cares has been committed to fighting MS.

For donations of varying amounts, DWM technicians sponsored dares to embarrass their favorite DWM employees. Donations ranged from $25 to pie a DWM employee in the face up to a $1,000 sponsorship that resulted in the world's most disgusting pizzas being eaten.

“I am proud of the collective efforts of our employees and their desire to volunteer time and effort toward helping others," said Brian Whitt, Chief Operating Officer. "DWM will continue to support these efforts financially and by encouraging volunteer participation throughout 2019."

"We are extremely thankful to have such great technician partners who supported our efforts in the fight against MS," said Samantha Sommerman, Vendor Relations Lead. "It meant so much to our employees to have such strong support for a cause that is so meaningful to DWM."

The funds raised from WalkMS champion awareness and research initiatives to help find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. DWM is committed to helping find a cure for its family, friends, and employees living with this debilitating disease.

Check out some photos of the DWM Dare Day that raised over $20,800 for the MS Society:
