API goes beyond the standard supplier and will become an extension of your design, estimating, project management, and construction teams. Our firm offers innovative spec and design support, budgeting and estimating services, fabrication, engineering, and field support for your installation team.
We manufacture, stock, and supply many of the standard product lines that are widely used within the industry but we pride ourselves on our customization abilities.

Facts & Figures
In Business Since
Our fully integrated approach to ‘Complete Storefront Solutions” provides our clients with the ability to work with a team of experts who understand the relationships between storefronts, entry doors, decorative metal, sun control, railing and more. When we review a new design or set of plans, we look at the entire project as a collective unit and will then break down each component individually. We examine the purpose, location, and most importantly the design intent of each scope. We provide feedback on what we learned and at times it may include Value Engineering (VE) options we can propose that will help you save money or concerns we have over certain materials and their production lead times. Our goal is help you design and build a project that meets budgets, timelines, and design requirements.
Based on our client’s needs and their project requirements, we have expanded our product lines and manufacturing capabilities. Our campus offers customization and building of entry door systems, metal grooving, integrated CNC and sawing, stainless steel fabrication (including custom curving and bending), 16’ brake and shear capacity, four paint lines (with the ability to finish materials over 24’), and composite panel fabrication.
