Because customer needs differ greatly based upon project type and size, API has both a Small Commercial and Large Commercial Division.

Small Commercial

APIís Small Commercial Division caters to the needs of national chains, offering an extensive range of products in addition to exceptional design and project management services. Working with exterior and interior retail chains, restaurants, banks, gas stations, drug stores, grocery chains, hospitality, and more, API has become a single source provider and valued partner to all of our clients. Many chains gain an advantage by purchasing multiple products from our extensive product lines to ensure quality products, consistent finishes, on time deliveries, and more. For example, API supplies many national chains with their storefront, entry doors, panel systems, handrail, roof screens, brake metal, sun control, and more. API has established itself as a preferred supplier with versatile capabilities and exceedingly dependable performance.

For national chains looking to partner with an experienced supplier, API offers a National Account Program. This program pioneered the storefront industry and provides owners the ability to work directly with the manufacturer to procure material which in turn provides cost savings while creating standardization across their brand.

Large Commercial

APIís Large Commercial division (APIC) services the needs of the large commercial market. APIís storefront systems and full range of products can be found on premier projects worldwide. API manufactures (and fabricates, if needed) storefront, curtain wall, entrances, sun control systems (sunshades, light shelves, etc.), railings, ACM and other panel systems and more. In addition, subject to project size and geographic location, APIC can provide a complete turn-key subcontractor price, including installation of APIís product lines. We work with architects and designers to create custom storefront, curtain wall, sun control systems, railings and more to fit specific project needs. For projects of a smaller size, APIC will quote and ship materials to local installers worldwide. Spec API today to receive quality products at competitive prices.
