Why APA?

Membership in the APA saves you time and money, particularly if you are a small or medium sized company.

“Right now I’m not big enough to have a compliance department, but the APA provides me the latest regulatory information and is available as a resource for answering questions.  Annual dues are far less than one violation penalty.  APA membership is an investment in my company’s future.”
Steve Marson, Central Maine Pyrotechnics, Hallowell, ME


“APA’s relationships with officials in Washington, D.C. and around the world are invaluable in assisting its member, especially international manufacturers. Whether it’s expediting an EX Approval or dealing with an unexpected shipping issue, the APA staff knows how to resolve the issue promptly.” 
Jim Shih, Sunny International
