WHO WE ARE
Manufacturer. Distributor. Merchandiser. Partner.
For over 50 years, API (Atlantic Pacific Industries) has been a leading manufacturer of exceptionally engineered products, including both functional and decorative cabinetry hardware.
In addition to its precise, quality manufacturing, API offers premium distribution services, merchandising support and analytics tools, making it uniquely positioned to help its customers unlike any other manufacturer.
As of 2016, we were pleased to launch additional products under the API family of brands.
Historically, API’s brand in the market has been AP Hardware, our functional hardware line. Today, AP Hardware is joined by Giuseppe Viennese, our designer line, and Sofia Home, our custom, made-to-order luxury line.
Our grandfather Joseph Wiener founded API in 1967 as an all-purpose hardware distributor. With a focus on establishing personal relationships with our customers and providing them with value, our company soon built up a loyal client base in the Greater Los Angeles region.
Under the leadership of the founder Joseph’s daughter, Susan Siegel, and enterprising grandson, Michael Siegel, API has continually broadened its base over the past five decades, ranking among industry leaders in customer service, quality and pricing.
Today’s CEO Michael Siegel is dedicated to maintain the original values that grew API — remaining family-owned and operated, provide personalized service to its customers — while innovating with product development, distribution, analytics tools and unique services that provide increased value to API’s customers.
We’re very proud to be a third-generation family business that's been stocking shelves with quality decorative and functional hardware in southern California. We look forward to growing with our customers over the next 50 years.
