NEWS FLASH! APOLLO AND WOODCRAFT ANNOUNCE RELATIONSHIP
Apollo Sprayers and Woodcraft Announce New Relationship
Introducing Woodcraft Customers to Apollo HVLP Products
Vista, CA. 24 February 2011. Apollo Sprayers International, Inc., is proud to announce their new relationship with Woodcraft, Supply, LLC. John Darroch, President and CEO of Apollo, said “We are absolutely delighted to ally ourselves with a great company like Woodcraft. We have much in common: a dedication to quality, a passion for giving woodworkers what they need most, and a long history of serving those needs. Woodcraft has been going for more than 80 years, Apollo for more than 40, that’s a great heritage that will benefit woodworkers all over the country.”
The Apollo/Woodcraft relationship will roll out over coming months. Apollo’s Senior VP and COO, Bill Boxer, said that Apollo’s strong reputation in powerful HVLP systems was appealing to Woodcraft. Boxer said, “We’ve been working with in house Woodcraft staff, technical and phone support staff to familiarize them with Apollo products and systems, including the new Apollo Power Series, as they become available through Woodcraft stores, their website and their printed catalog from April, 2011.”
John Darroch said that the association between the two companies would be a great asset to Woodcraft customers, “Woodcraft wanted to meet the exacting requirements of dedicated woodworkers, people for whom an excellent finish is absolutely critical.” Apollo TrueHVLP™ turbine systems have continually evolved through Apollo’s close collaboration with coatings manufacturers so that they are exceptionally well positioned to spray both higher viscosity waterbased coatings as well as the more traditional solvent-based coatings.
Bill Boxer added, “The Woodcraft reputation is such that customers turn to them for information and classes in their in-store classrooms. We’ll be working closely to develop an education program to help everyone who purchases an Apollo Sprayer Turbine System or Conversion gun to achieve the finest finish.”
