Us, who we are and where are we going
Architectural Panel Products Industries, LLC. was founded in 1991 and is a well-positioned manufacturer of pre-finished and unfinished high-quality architectural grade panel products incorporating both domestic and exotic veneers from around the globe. Our extensive procurement network provides us the ability to meet design expectations at competitive prices. The incorporation of our extensive knowledge and flexible production capabilities, as well as high-quality machinery, allows customers’ access to incorporate extensive production details and gain design and production efficiencies from them.
Using our broad range of U.V. Environmentally Friendly Finishing Technology, APPI has the means to control color such as “piano black or white”, or a myriad of other striking colors. For wood products, our ability to include and mix any stain is in our control for each client. One of our more striking capabilities is the production of high gloss finishes resulting in a sheen of 94 plus. This very unique capability provides design capabilities that are remarkably high quality at a competitive price and in a fraction of the time normally required to produce this type of finish. While the high gloss is unique, APPI does possess nearly all normal sheens from 10, 20, 40, 60, 80 as well. These finishing capabilities can be included on most all substrates from lightweight veneer core plywood, balsa cores, Honey Comb, and foam cores, to all forms of particleboard, medium-density fiberboards of all types. To compliment all of our finishing applications APPI has matching edge banding AND SOLID LUMBER products that will finalize the details needed to incorporate the use of prefinished materials.
Nevermore than in today’s market has it become more pertinent to empower sustainable forest products in our designs and production. For this reason, APPI is certified FSC and is a leading manufacturer of prefinished wood veneered panels using products that meet this very critical certification. Beyond this, we have a strong relationship with leading suppliers of Composite veneers using sustainable and replanted Italian Poplar and African Obeche using superior low formaldehyde processing.
APPI has primarily serviced the Ultra high-end Marine industry and some regional millwork clients. However, the future of APPI is moving into new industries and new geographical territories, and we want that future to involve you. Industries that fit well into our wheelhouse are aerospace, commercial and residential millwork, Architectural & Design, exhibit and store Fixtures, Furniture, components, and RV’s just to name a few.
As part of our cutting edge approach to a new distribution and independent factory representation model, we intend to introduce online quoting with 24-hour turnaround on most requests, specification tracking to ensure credit is always placed with the proper sales entity, support from our Marketing team to provide complete prepared email blasts for your distribution into your network, fast around for sample requests, video presentations, and AIA CEU presentations for any scheduled lunch and learns and complete collateral materials to assist with sales. As always you will have full access to our team of knowledgeable professions in-house.
