Client Testimonials

On behalf of Hoosier Racing Tire, I would like to personally thank you and the other fine folks at APV who acted quickly to ensure that we would continue to receive the Q-0410 inside tire lube. You and your company should be commended for quickly addressing this issue and fulfilling our needs. We have always had a very positive relationship with APV and I anticipate a long and mutually beneficial relationship into the future. Thanks again for making us your number one priority and getting us through this shortage.

DaVinci has been producing roof covering materials for more than 10 years and has a strong reputation for high-end, weather resistant roof tiles with the aesthetics of real slate or shake. When we required a coating technology that would sustain the look and durability of our products longer than any roof tile in the industry, we looked to APV’s R&D team to meet the challenge. They assessed the performance requirements and chemical properties we needed for our unique product and engineered an entirely custom coating. The APV product has performed well and has helped sustain our competitive advantage in the building products market.
