APN Global acquires AFP - Analytical Flow Products Valve Technology

APN Quebec acquired in June 2017 the AFP (Analytical Flow Products) Valve Technology from Mecanique Analytique Inc with all related patents, assets and the AFP trademark to create their new entity APN-AFP.

The APN Global Group by now consists of APN Canada, a world class machine shop and leading ambassador of the Industry 4.0 movement, S&S Carbide from San Diego, California, a company specialized in the manufacturing of punches and dies and SCC (Southern California Carbide) and AFP.

APN Global has been a long term AFP supplier. Face with a strong growth and a desire to continue to offer high quality products, AFP made the strategic decision to outsource its high volume manufacturing line in early 2016 to APN facility which is ISO 9001, AS 9100 and DQCR certified and also one of the most advanced Industry 4.0 facility in the world. Due to the synergies, the acquisition was consequently a natural step and aligned with APN strategy to diversify its activities in other markets such as life science and the analytical field.

Designed based on a large patent portfolio and knowhow, the AFP product line is consisting of Gas Chromatographic Diaphragm and Rotary valves with accessories which are recognised worldwide and accepted as the reference in the field and a guarantee for future success in a fast growing market.

Joining the APN Global group gives AFP the possibility to invest even more into R&D, new technologies and guarantee at the same time manufacturing capacity to supply the entire Analytical market.

APN Global is majorly owned and managed by the brothers Yves and Jean Proteau. AFP was founded by Yves Gamache and Andre Fortier in 2007. Peter Theissen, since 2012 with AFP, is shareholder of APN Global and the new CEO of APN-AFP.
