AP_About_photoHow do you end up with a line of industrial cleaning products and specialty chemicals that set the standard for an entire industry? You start with a man who knows the details of the industry first hand. My name is Paul Krause and I was born into the chemical cleaning industry. I grew up immersed in my family’s business, and spent subsequent decades there, learning the ins and outs of my trade. While I experienced tremendous satisfaction helping to grow the family business, my exceptional drive, and desire to innovate, planted seeds of restlessness, as I began to envision a better way to serve the industrial cleaning product consumer. Finally, in 1997, with my father’s blessing, and years of valuable experience under my belt, and a Bachelor in Science in Business Administration from the University of San Francisco, I ventured out to start my own company,and founded AP Products, America’s leading industrial cleaning product and specialty chemical suppliers with the most innovative products in the business.

AP Products is a family owned business headquartered in Granite Bay California. 3 generations are involved in the business, with over 70 years of combined cleaning industry experience and a long history of giving our customers the quality industrial-sized chemical cleaning solutions they need, with the care and concern that only a family business can provide. I oversee the formulation of AP Products offerings, working with chemists and consumers to develop unique household cleaning products that are safe and effective.

There are multiple divisions that fall under AP Products, such as AP Clean, a complete source for 100% made in the USA, quality industrial maintenance supplies and AP Silicone, experts in silicone polymers, defoamers, and specialty silicone emulsions.

We have an entire line of cleaning products called Certi Green which exceeds almost every government organization standards and a renewable lubricants line which are all biobased and biodegradable.
