Air Advantage Internet business expanding into Frankenmuth warehouse, adding more jobs

Posted: Updated:
FRANKENMUTH (WJRT) -

(07/26/12) - A Mid-Michigan city is welcoming its newest business, one that promises to bring dozens of jobs and faster Internet service.

Air Advantage held a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday at their brand new Frankenmuth warehouse.

The warehouse is located right down the street from their office headquarters on North Franklin.

Air Advantage is all about bringing broadband Internet to rural areas of the thumb.

Some people in those areas still had dial up Internet until they started building towers and running cable throughout the region.

That was back in 200. Fast forward to now, and business is booming.

The warehouse gives them room to grow and put together their equipment.

It's city owned, but it wasn't being used, and Air Advantage is leasing it.

That means the building is now on the tax rolls and Air Advantage can add at least 60 more jobs.

Before they had this warehouse, they had to assemble their equipment outside in all kinds of weather.

Now, they can assemble their gear safely indoors.
