AFP operates in the commercial, government and education markets with 106 employees and nine offices in Arizona, California, Idaho, New Mexico, Utah and Washington. The family owned company has served customers in the western United States since the mid-1950s. AFP has had a long-standing relationship with both AAF International and Flanders as the combined company’s largest air filter distributor.
The acquisition will allow AAF Flanders to expand its air filtration services across the western United States.
“AAF Flanders is an industry leader and is steering their ship in the direction we want to go,” said Branden Sparks, AFP president. “So we’re very excited to align our deep experience in the industry with the AAF Flanders team.”
“Our new partnership with AFP will allow AAF Flanders to continue to build up our presence in the West,” said Philip Whitaker, AAF International’s CEO. “AFP has been serving customers for almost 60 years. That’s a terrific resource for us to tap into, and we’re looking forward to combining AFP’s strong distribution network with AAF Flanders’ wide range of products.”
“AAF Flanders has had a long, successful relationship with AFP, so we’re thrilled about this acquisition,” added David Parker, AAF International’s vice president of Commercial & Industrial Sales in Western North America. “Acquiring AFP fits in well with our strategic plan for the West Region, as we continue to expand AAF’s service capabilities in the western United States and work to get closer to our customers.”
