YKK AP America and Erie Architectural Products (Erie AP) have announced 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,” says 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.”
“This latest enhancement to Erie AP and YKK AP’s strategic relationship demonstrates the powerful combination of a quality product company like YKK AP working together with a specialized facades business like ours,” adds Ramsey Fadel, executive vice president and general manager of Erie Architectural Products. “With expanded access to the best product portfolio in the industry, we have strengthened our position to help our customers be successful in winning contracts on high-performance facades.”
Erie AP engineers, manufactures and distributes its ENVIRO|FACADES curtainwall systems across the U.S. It provides design assist collaboration services, in-house engineering services, performance validation, manufacturing and technical support to glazing contractors.
