PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Jun 6, 2012) - APC Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: APCU) announced today that an agreement has been signed with A' La Gate Carte of Hauppauge, NY to include the Arctic Leash OEM for their carts.
Ken Forster, CEO, commented, "We spend a great deal of time and effort working with our OEM customers as they are truly the driving force of our product which we can bank on year after year for ongoing seamless sales. This agreement adds to our list of OEM customers which strengthens our bottom line and provides security for quite some time. We are excited to be a part of something with untapped growth potential at this time, knowing these carts are used world-wide for many applications."
Bob Watson, President of A' La Gate Carte, stated, "By using the built-in Arctic Leash from APC Group on board the A' La Gate Carte, our airport retail customers are significantly expanding the walls of their store. The increased visibility drives more revenue from passengers who walk directly past them parked on main concourse walkways, which are the areas in which consumer traffic is most dense. Instead of being tethered to a hidden position because of an out-of-the-way power outlet, the A' La Gate Carte mobile merchandising unit can be situated directly in the traffic pattern. Retailers appreciate the boost in sales and consumers appreciate the convenience."
A' La Gate Carte (http://www.alagatecarte.com) designs, manufactures and distributes patented mobile merchandising units to consumer dense venues such as airports and stadiums. Retailers, manufacturers, airport authorities and venue organizers can select from off-the-shelf designs or customize their own design based on brand, creative theme, location and product merchandising requirements.
APC Group manufactures and distributes the Arctic Leash™ watertight retractable extension cord reel, the MedReel® and a proprietary line of all weather, indoor/outdoor extension cords under the brand name Arctic Leash™ for home and industrial use. APC Group's flagship products are the hospital-grade MedReel, used in hospital operating theaters, patient rooms and medical carts throughout the world; and the Arctic Leash, used in providing watertight retractable power for any climate anywhere in the world.
