Vista, CA. July 1, 2011. Apollo Sprayers International, Inc. has received a prestigious award from MOTOR China Magazine. The Hearst publication is the leading monthly magazine for the Chinese automotive maintenance and repair market. Apollo received the honor for their new Apollo Power Series HVLP Turbine Systems and The AtomiZer™ 7500 Spray Gun as being amongst the “Top 20 Most Innovative and Imported Tools” exported from the United States to China.
Bill Boxer, Apollo Sprayers Senior Vice President and COO received the award in person at the Awards Banquet in Beijing. Says Boxer, “To my immense surprise, satisfaction and pride, we were named #2 of the “Top 20 Most Innovative and Imported Tools” in that marketplace. I accepted the award on behalf of everyone at Apollo Sprayers and Mr. Dong YiPeng, Managing Director of Shanghai Spray Mechanical, Co. Ltd., our honored representative in the China market.”
John Darroch, Apollo President and CEO said, “We are honored to be part of America’s important program of increasing our exports to China since China is the largest export market for American goods outside of North America. Apollo is expanding internationally and we have focused on our exports to Europe, South America, Asia and Australia. In addition we are moving into new vertical markets beyond our traditional woodworking base.”
