Advanced Protection Technologies, Inc.
Advanced Protection Technologies, Inc. (APT) has been designing, manufacturing and selling Industrial, Commercial, Oil/Gas and Residential Surge Protective Devices (SPDs) since 1985. We are a privately held company with no debt that has been under the original ownership for the entire duration. What began as a small company of ten employees, selling to customers in Southeastern USA, has grown to become a global industry leader with over one hundred employees. Each member of the senior management team has been with the company for more than 15 years. APT has eight degreed Electrical Engineers on staff, an exceptionally trained technical sales team and a manufacturing team trained in the latest, state of the art, Lean manufacturing processes.
Surge Protective Devices
APT has the most complete line of Low Voltage surge protectors in the industry, with over 70,000 SKUs, used in applications such as Industrial, Commercial, Residential, Data/Communications and more. Our low voltage products protect systems ranging from 5VDC to 600VAC, including all international voltage systems.
Our products are the number one specified Surge Protective Device (SPD) by oil producers and oil services companies worldwide. APT’s new (1000VAC - 4160VAC) Medium Voltage surge protector, the first of it’s kind in the surge industry, is commonly used to protect medium voltage motors at oil production wells, refineries, water/wastewater treatment plants, and mining operations. There are currently no other UL listed Medium Voltage Surge Protective Devices (SPDs) available in the industry.
Live Training - Earn PDHs & CEUs
For over twenty years, APT has offered IEEE accredited Engineering Seminars where PDHs (qualified and approved by IEEE) can be earned that are recognized and accepted by most states, including the rigorous states, Florida and New York. This course starts with basics and proceeds through advanced topics including UL, IEEE & NEC and is standards-based, not sales- oriented. This may be the most efficient and comprehensive seven hours of Surge Protective Device (SPD) training available. Engineers appreciate the explanation of the science, art and marketing surrounding the surge industry.
Top Notch Customer Service
APT has earned the respect from our clients by providing world class customer service. Frost & Sullivan has honored us for three years with awards for superior service and has ranked APT number one in the SPD three phase market. Our manufacturing processes are ISO 9001:2008 certified. We have two in-house testing labs that are ISO 17025 certified by UL to do portions of UL 1449 testing.
Local Growth & Worldwide Presence
In 2007, APT’s growth strategy expanded from its base in the US Construction Market and began to focus on Alternative Energy, Oil/Gas, OEM and International Markets. APT has developed key relationships and new products that will drive growth in these new markets for years to come. In 2010, APT growth hit 41% over the previous year. Following that trend, in 2011 we celebrated a 10,000 square foot manufacturing floor expansion. Several new positions were created ranging from front office administration to production assemblers to high level manufacturing personnel. We have settled into our new facility and implemented new workflow processes. Expansion continues as a number of new products are manufactured and new brand label agreements are finalized.
Global expansion was achieved when APT opened an office in Singapore to take advantage of the growing Asian markets. We are committed to becoming the number one supplier of three phase surge protectors to the International marketplace. APT’s dedicated network of distributors and agents are currently promoting our products throughout Canada, Mexico, Central America, South America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Our proven track record and commitment to a long term business philosophy has pushed us to the forefront of surge protector manufacturing and distribution.
Private Labeling & Marketing
APT is the industry’s largest private label manufacturer of surge protectors. Past and present brand label partners include Siemens Industry, Schneider Electric & Square D and American Power Conversion (APC). We regularly sell APT labeled products to other industry leaders such as Eaton, GE, ABB, Rockwell and a number of smaller niche market leaders.
