We've been around for a good while, but we're just getting started.
Read below to find out a little bit about when we got started and what we're trying to do.
Established in Butler, Pennsylvania in 1968, api has grown to 20 locations serving Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and West Virginia. Specializing in the full breadth of collision center supply from disposable wipers and rags to full-frame anchoring systems and the latest in refinish coatings technology, we are a true full-service distributor.

Employing over 130 people including 24 full-time salesmen, three full-time technical representatives and two full-time heavy equipment professionals, api has the capacity and experience to serve any size collision facility. From a one man shop to a state-of-the-art fast track production facility, we can bring a level of professionalism and experience that is unmatched. All of our upper management, including principals, keep their finger on the pulse of the industry by maintaining their own accounts. Simply put - We're there for you.

Evolving with the industry and pushing it to the next level has always been our philosophy. Whether it is scheduling I-CAR classes in our conference center or hosting an array of educational seminars designed to address specific collision center management techniques, we feel it is important that our customers have the best training available.

The collision industry has changed as much as anyone could have guessed in the last 7-10 years. Gone are the days of guaranteed success as long as you had an open sign on the front door and a pint of paint on your shelf. By aligning yourself with the correct people who bring years of knowledge and more service that can be billed on an invoice, you'll stand a better chance of success in a challenging and ever-changing market.

If you'd like to learn more about our company, feel free to stop in at any one of our locations, or you can always give us a call at 1-800-659-5160. We're open M-F, 8:00-5:00pm and Saturday 8:00-12:00pm.
