Who We Are

Meet the lean team behind APCS

We are a Texas-based company that offers world-class specification-driven products, systems, and solutions to architects, engineers and contractors, with the ease of doing business with a firm that understands the industry’s requirements, challenges and opportunities.

Each member of our team excels in his/her field and is focused on delivering outstanding customer service and meeting the company’s contractual obligations. “We do what we say we’ll do” is a core principle at APCS. As an independent manufacturer’s representative company, APCS assists architects, engineers, and contractors every step of the way, from early design assist through post-sales support. And being representatives – not dealers or distributors – there are no markups or additional costs to the buyer, since purchasing takes place directly between contractor and manufacturer.

A true spirit of service is not easy to find these days. All of us at APCS strive to exceed the expectations of architects, engineers, and contractors, finding creative and cost-effective solutions for your cladding and structural connection challenges. Call us at (210) 862-6431 or email us at info@apcs-sales.com for prompt attention and service.

With over 20 years in the construction industry, and having held director-level positions with international companies for over a decade, Victor J. Yakin launched APCS with a simple philosophy: Offer world-class products, systems, and service to American architects, engineers, and contractors, with the ease of doing business with a local firm that understands our industry’s challenges and opportunities.

Victor’s industry experience ranges from the establishment and direction of a specialty glazing contractor in the 1990’s, to a decade as National Sales Manager of Halfen Anchoring Systems, to Director of Business Development for Oldcastle, Inc.

During these years Victor developed a network of world-class manufacturers, fabricators and producers, with which he established long-term relationships and friendships that endure today. A technical background (BSME and a CSI/CDT certification) and decades of experience in sales and marketing in the construction products industry have culminated in APCS, founded in 2012.
