Home > Company Profile
API has been working in the research, development and production of customised thermoplastic compound materials and elastomers for a vast range of sectors since 1956, over 50 years aimed at customer satisfaction.
What makes API truly unique in a context of compound producers is that it offers a complete range of TPU, TPE, PU and the latest biodegradable elastomers to clients who demand tailor-made solutions and exceptional performance.
The API R & D department conducts ongoing research and product customization. Researching and perfecting usage suitability is the core concept underpinning the philosophy of our work.
This is expressed through the development of polymers and their derivatives which precisely meet the needs of both transformers of semi-finished plastics and end users. Our team of qualified, experienced and highly-skilled technicians in API is also able to proactively predict future needs that are likely to emerge by constantly monitoring trends and the pressures of an incessant demand for innovation from the market. State-of-the-art equipment, the fruit of engineering within the company itself, combined with production capacity and flexibility and a high degree of reliability and reproducibility are the hallmarks of our business.
Ongoing and constant product research goes hand in hand with the continuous research we carry out aimed at protecting the environment, both within the Company itself as well as outside it.
Careful selection during the formulation of the various families of polymers and basic additives enables the preventive removal of harmful or potentially dangerous components and facilitates the safe reuse of process waste and recycling of materials at the end of their useful life. API employs a Quality Management System certified in accordance with the ISO 9001 Standard and an Environmental Management System certified in accordance with the ISO 14001 Standard.
API has always paid close attention to preventive measures, to ensure the safety of its workplaces and products. In June 2013 we achieved OHSAS 18001 certification in accordance with BS OHSAS 18001: 2007.
