Innovations

Through a combination of innovative product engineering, and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, AP is able to meet customer demands for advanced product solutions for a multitude of markets. Our capabilities in exhaust and emission product development, and production are extensive. AP through the years has been a leader in original designs that has changed the industry. From our unique muffler designs to our OBDII Catalytic Converters, AP has enabled it’s customer to lead the market with robust products that solve difficult exhaust system problems.

New developments in rapid prototyping and the use of SolidWorks computer-aided design systems that are integrated with CMM coordinate-measuring machines for precise dimensional measuring, and CNC pipe benders have increased our speed to market with new parts. Use of such tools facilitates precise engineering designs and allows for flexible and rapid adjustments. Our constant search for process improvements is an ongoing challenge that never stops at AP.

Innovation is not limited to just product design. Just as important is the manufacturing process used to make our parts, and at AP we strive to achieve maximum efficiencies in all of our production processes. Our facilities employ advanced automation, robotics and computer controlled monitoring and statistical process controls as part of our quality management system. Our factories and suppliers are electronically connected for high speed transmission of production and engineering data. This commitment to continuous improvement results in lower costs, improved inventory management, higher quality, and most importantly customer satisfaction.
