About us

A.P.C. traces its roots back to 1973, over 40 years ago...

The firm was started by Francesco Sala, making adhesive nail covers for footwear manufacture. Over the years it has extended to production of reinforcing fabrics, lining, non-slip material, technical foam for padding to use in the footwear and leather goods, furnishing, promotion and cosmetics sectors. So business has developed on both the Italian and international markets thanks to the boost abroad due to globalization in the '90s. The secret of success: putting customers and their needs at the center of the corporate project, the ability to adapt to clients' requirements, personalizing products on demand and trying to satisfy even the smallest details. This is how diverse technical solutions have come about which have won the loyalty of our interlocutors and enabled the firm to grow.
