APEL Extrusions Eyes Phoenix, Arizona, Headquarters and Operations Center

Calgary-based extrusion manufacture APEL Extrusions will locate its new 323,782-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing facility, purchasing 22.6 acres of land, in Phoenix, Arizona. The company intends to hire approximately 200 employees.

APEL will expand its West Coast Operations to Phoenix in late 2022 with plans to move the company’s headquarters to follow, according to Arizona Commerce Authority. The new facility will feature 12 drive-in doors, three dock doors, 30’ clear height and two crane bays.

“With our expansion to Phoenix, APEL will have the ability to serve every West Coast city in two days or less by truck and further compress our already industry leading lead times,” says Mike Flynn, President and COO of APEL Extrusions. “By installing the most advanced extrusion and finishing equipment in the North American industry, APEL will become the benchmark for those customers seeking the best in product quality, service and on-time performance from their extrusion supplier.”

The Phoenix facility was strategically planned to help APEL better serve its West Coast customers and open the possibility of new customers and markets in the Southwest and points further East that have not been able to be efficiently reached up to now.

"Arizona is thrilled to welcome APEL Extrusion's high-performance manufacturing facility to our state - the company's second location outside of Canada," said Governor Doug Ducey. "With our growing supply of skilled talent, low cost of doing business and strategic location, no state in the country is better suited to meet the needs of advanced manufacturers. My thanks go out to the Arizona Commerce Authority, the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, City of Phoenix and all the partners involved in this exciting announcement, as well as to the team at APEL Extrusions for choosing our state. We look forward to partnering in their success for decades to come."

APEL Extrusions is a full-service extrusion manufacturer that specializes in aluminum extrusion and finishing. The company was founded in 1972 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and since has expanded its presence to Coburg, Oregon. With its headquarters and production facility in Alberta, and factory in Oregon, APEL services both western Canada as well as the western United States.
