At the beginning in 1978, APG was specialized in installation of complete turnkey projects. The performance requirements led to the design of a range of professional loudspeakers. The quality of these speakers spoke enough to establish the brand APG as one of the best. For a time APG was integrated as a division of the biggest independent European audio distribution company. In 2004, after a management buy-out, APG recovered its independent status and strategy.
In 2020, Active Audio and APG established Arbane Groupe. With Active Audio and APG, the Arbane Groupe enjoys a unique position in the professional audio market; offering a range of solutions, from public address to professional loudspeakers for events and fixed installations, while providing its customers with the flexibility of a company on a human scale.
APG is continuing in its drive for excellence and controlled growth, based on the development of a new line of innovative products, a global strategy and core values of ethic and respect for its customers, its suppliers and its environment.
More than 35 years have left their mark on APG's history with creation and achievement of acoustic and electronic innovations: Appolito's baffle (1982), coaxial loudspeakers (1991), ISOTOP™ driver, Bandpass and K-Horn loads, cone drivers' dynamic protection.
