YKK AP America and Erie Architectural Products (Erie AP) today announce an integrated facades solution. Erie AP can now provide expanded access to YKK AP’s product portfolio in a pre-engineered and prefabricated format, serving as a single-source facades supplier for high-performance building projects.
In 2019, YKK AP acquired Erie AP to meet the increasing demands of the commercial construction market. As the industry evolves, the two companies see Erie AP’s expanded scope as a way to help architects, design teams, and glazing contractors create greater efficiencies through fabricated and unitized product solutions to meet tighter schedules and more rapid building close-ins while delivering on high-performance facades for large-scale building projects.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to further serve Erie AP’s customers with expanded access to YKK AP’s high-performance facade solutions in a pre-engineered, prefabricated format,” said Mike Turner, senior vice president of sales and marketing at YKK AP America Inc. “I feel confident that this integration will bring tremendous value to the market.”
