Wood cooking plank manufacturer Flame Grilling products opened a 3,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution center in Waldoboro, ME. Nowadays, demand for Maine hardwoods in the restaurants both local and international and culinary industry are on the rise, that’s why there is a need to expand the area.
The 10-year old firm which says it invented oval frilling planks and introduced $100million grilling market to Northern White Cedar grilling planks, also plans to open a plant in Florida.
“Our new 30,000 sq. ft. facility will enable us to grow with our customers by expanding our drying capacity, adding new production equipment, and expanded shipping and processing capabilities,” says Kenneth Theobald, president.
While the market is dominated by the traditional variety of hickory and mesquite, “the demand for our exotic woods is growing by leaps and bounds,” says Theobald. “We want to be in a position to supply this growing demand well into the future.” says Mr. Theobald.
