|50,000-square-foot campus to serve as international hub for APF production, distribution, training and R&D as company continues expansion
PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Arizona Polymer Flooring (APF), a manufacturer of high-performance
flooring products and concrete coating systems, is thrilled to
announce it has relocated into a state-of-the-art, 50,000-square-foot
manufacturing facility in Phoenix.
The mixed-use building, located near 43rd Avenue and Buckeye Road (4565
West Watkins Street), will feature an 18,000-square-foot production
area, 18,000 square feet set aside for storage and warehouse space, and
14,000 square feet dedicated to office space. APF President and CEO
Daniel Owen says the new facility will enable the company to:
Enhance training by offering more interactive presentations and
demonstrations highlighting product value and application techniques.
Improve and streamline operations, including the strategic location of
loading docks that help improve processes for order pickup, truck
deliveries and organizing finished goods.
Increase production output. The additional square footage means APF
can add more equipment, perform more runs at once and accommodate
larger production runs to meet higher demand.
“It’s incredibly humbling to walk through such an expansive and modern
facility. I’ve been committed to the operations and growth of this
company since I was a child, and to see this vision realized is among
the greatest accomplishments of my career,” said Owen. “We have an
incredible team that’s deeply committed to integrity and customer
service, and this facility will enable us to perform our jobs even
better, innovate more and expand further.”
The construction was a collaborative design-build project among APF, Sun
State Builders and Winton Architects.
“We were honored to be selected as the general contractor to deliver
APF’s first design-build project,” said Andrea Piering, senior project
manager for Sun State Builders. “The owners had such clear visions of
what the facility would look and function like, and it was a pleasure to
make those visions a reality.”
APF is best known for industry-leading, high-performance concrete
coating systems for industrial environments, such as military bases,
aircraft hangars, government buildings, hazardous areas, food and
beverage production facilities, healthcare facilities, and other
demanding environments. Last year, APF acquired Super-Krete
International, LLC. Now Super-Krete®
Products, the brand thrives as APF’s decorative concrete and
concrete repair division.
APF has two additional production facilities in Texas and California
that currently support Super-Krete Products. Plans are underway to
expand and upgrade each of these facilities so the company can produce a
wider range of APF products and systems.
“This is an incredibly exciting time at APF. Our rapid expansion is
ultimately the result of providing the highest level of customer service
and developing quality products that customers demand,” said Owen. “No
matter how far and fast we grow, we pledge to remain true to our
original mission and operate with the highest level of integrity.”
