About Us

APi Distribution has come a long way since 1926. APi, Inc was founded by Reuben Anderson and his son, Lee Anderson took over the company after his service in the army. After identifying a need for a contracting company and a material distributor, APi Distribution formed its own identity. As an insulation distributor, we are consistently recognized for our excellence in the industry.

APi Distribution primarily began as an insulation distributor, has grown our partnerships and product offering to better meet our customers’ needs and to be a "one-stop-shop". We are a supply leader of insulation, high-performance coatings and specialty building products for the commercial, industrial, residential and oil & gas industries.
