Press Release

APV Engineered Coatings is pleased to announce it has been included in Paint & Coatings Industry Magazine’s listing of the Top 25 North American coatings manufacturers for the second year in a row.

The annual listing in the magazine’s July issue recognizes companies based on industry sales figures.

APV saw significant growth in 2019, fueled largely by demand for its products in the aerospace, flexible films and industrial textiles, architectural building products, and tire and rubber industries, as well as in its private label and contract manufacturing business.

“We are positioned for similar growth in 2020 and have been on an upward trend since the mid-1980s,” said David Venarge, Chairman, APV Engineered Coatings. “Customers trust our products for their quality and performance, and our custom innovations have been embraced by a wide variety of product manufacturers.”

Among the many products APV manufactures, its leading coatings products include its line of VYNGUARD® topcoats and finishes for woven and non-woven substrates and its line of NeverFade® Façade Restoration Coatings for architectural exterior restoration.

Contract manufacturing and private label services are also a long-standing sector and driver of growth for APV, especially among Fortune 500 manufacturers in the paints and coatings industry, for whom APV is a key resource.
