About API

Quality Is Our Culture

Quality is in the details. When every angle, every spec, and every shape counts, count on API.

Our team understands that the success of your product depends on the quality of your manufacturers. That’s why we proudly back all product offerings with ISO 9001:2015 certification — the only ISO standard that requires certification from independent, third-party auditors. This rigorous certification process involves implementing a Quality Management System to encompass all areas of business, including employee training, operating procedures, equipment maintenance, and technical documentation. All procedures are closely monitored, continuously improved, and updated.

API’s expertise in polarization is backed by industry-best quality certifications and standards. Whether you’re inventorying previous orders or seeking a brand new product solution, you can count on API to fulfill your order using the most stringent quality standards in the industry.

Since its founding in 1960, API has followed a business model focused on integrating overall business strategy with quality assurance. ISO certification supports this strategy by implementing methods that are measurable and foster accountability. Ensuring that all manufacturing systems are documented, have training programs, follow standard operating procedures, are subject to audits, and are repeatable will help promote long-term employee, supplier, and customer satisfaction.
