Apecs was established in 1991 in Moscow and, in the past 25 years, it has steadily grown to secure a leading position in the global marketplace, by designing and manufacturing a large range of high-quality hardware for the lock and architectural hardware industries.

Our own laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art technologies ensure that Apecs products are manufactured in compliance to the highest standards of Europe, China and the United States. Our professional relationship with testing organisations in Russia, where testing standards exceed UK specifications, allows us to produce door hardware that stand outs and builds confidence in our customers.

Apecs appreciates the pressures of the modern market and with offices in London, Moscow and Beijing we are able to efficiently fulfil our customers needs. In spite of our global outreach, we remain an independent, family-owned company and we value a close working relationship across the three continents in which we operate.

Using our advanced manufacturing techniques and a strong network connection to industry specialists, we are able to supply a range of products to our customers in a timely and cost-effective manner.
