Becknell selected to develop APEL Extrusions new headquarters in Arizona

APEL Extrusions, NorthAmerica’s leading independent aluminum extruder and finisher, has selected Becknell Industrial to design and construct its new 323,782-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing facility in Phoenix, Arizona. APEL will expand its west coast operations to Phoenix in late 2022 with plans to move the company’s headquarters to follow. The company intends to hire approximately 200 employees at its new facility.

The new headquarters and manufacturing facility will allow the 45-year-old company to continue its creation of aluminum extrusions that are used in many different applications,
including: consumer goods, HVAC systems, office walls and furniture, public transportation, recreational vehicles, residential and commercial construction, solar and truck bodies. APEL is investing in the most modern and capable extrusion, anodizing, wet paint, powder coat and fabrication equipment available in the industry. This will be the most modern extrusion finishing facility in North America. The company currently has operations in Calgary, Alberta and Coburg, Oregon.

The building will feature 12 drive-in doors, three dock doors, 30’ clear height and two crane bays. Plans call for construction to begin this spring with operations commencing at the end of 2022.
