AMN interviews AP Emissions leadership about their growth, work ethic, and why they have no intentions of slowing down.

CEO Vange Proimos bought AP in 1998. He and his son Pete run the business together now. Bringing the right products at the right time is something AP strives to do. This and their focus on consumer/employee fairness sets them apart from many other companies. “We are 95% vertically integrated and can pivot to any individual customer’s needs, quickly and effectively. . .” Pete tells us. Fairness encompasses the company and their new website has made it easier than ever to support.
