On January 1, 2015, A&P Tool rebranded itself as APT Manufacturing Solutions. A company of 20 years doing work in the manufacturing sector is focusing its vision on assisting manufacturers overcome obstacles to everyday problems.


"Over the years, we've realized that we are no longer a "tool" company, but rather a solutions provider to the manufacturing industry. Our new brand embodies the fact that manufacturers have obstacles to overcome, and we can help. Our deep and diverse engineering and manufacturing expertise allows us to make your business stronger, from manual machining all the way to robot automation. It's important to know that this new brand is not the result of a buyout or any other significant change that would impact the values that A&P Tool has stood by for years. We are the same great company, with the same great people, operating at the same degree of excellence as we always have. We just want to make sure our name aligns with who we truly are - and we're excited to be the solution to your manufacturing needs for years to come," Anthony R. Nighswander - President
