A Message From Our CEO

I hope this post finds everyone enjoying the summer!  After a cool start we have had a few really good weather weeks in Michigan!


Our business has continued to strengthen as the year has progressed.  After a strong finish to the first quarter, we achieved new sales records in both May and June!  We are experiencing continued strength in our core markets and are having good success closing new business.


I am excited to announce the addition of Wayne Simpson to our management team as plant manager of our Livonia facility.  Wayne comes to AP with 25+ years of engineering and manufacturing leadership experience.  Wayne spent the last 18 years with the Jackson Michigan Gerdau Steel Producing Mill in various roles from Senior Project Engineer to Rolling Mill Manager.   Wayne has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan.


As I mentioned in the April issue of the Hostile Duck Digest, we are focused on strengthening our operational systems and processes.  Our new on-time shipping tracking system is working well providing us with clear visibility of committed ship dates.  I am proud to say that as of the writing of this article, we are 100% on time with our shipments in July!  We are also implementing new processes and systems aimed at improving manufacturing flow in the factories.  This new process will improve turn time, create a robust continuous improvement process and “unleash” additional capacity.
