For decades AP has engineered and manufactured a wide range of automotive exhaust and emission systems and components. AP’s assortment of products has grown to include mufflers, exhaust and tail pipes, catalytic converters and related installation and cosmetic accessories. AP has manufacturing processes which meet the needs for high-quality muffler, tube product, and catalytic converter production.
AP engineers design mufflers using state-of-the-art SolidWorks 3-D modeling programs resulting in rapid prototype and production implementation. AP's design process and adaptive manufacturing technologies allow the company to bring to market new products faster in a multitude of muffler configurations.
AP manufactures a vast array of mufflers designed for automotive, heavy-duty, and off-road vehicles. Using either stainless or aluminized steel, AP offers customers muffler design options for virtually any application. The company's muffler assembly lines are designed for maximum output providing enough capacity for any level of production requirement.
Muffler dimensional cross sections range from 4” round to 8.5”x11.5” oval. The design spectrum is unlimited within these dimensional ranges assuring that an effective sound and back pressure solution is matched to AP's customers’ specific exhaust system needs.
Within AP’s production factory sub-component parts are stamped and formed from raw material coils. AP controls the entire manufacturing process from the smallest component to the most complicated assembly. The company's expertise in the entire process from start to finish is what enables AP to be a complete exhaust solution provider.
AP manufactures a vast array of technologically advanced catalytic converters. From research to design, AP utilizes the best manufacturing practices and innovative technologies ensuring its customers are provided with solutions to meet their needs for industrial and automotive emission control components.
AP catalytic converters are designed to be durable and the company's use of stainless steel materials provides a long product life. Premium-grade ceramic substrates are processed in the company's factories to OEM performance and reliability standards. AP research engineers are specialized in material science, surface chemistry, and metallurgy. State-of-the-art production methods, coating techniques, advanced materials, and chemistry, all come together resulting in industry leading designs and emission control solutions.
AP is vertically integrated and manufactures vast amounts of strong steel tubing for use as straight and bent exhaust pipes, tail pipes, and muffler and catalytic converter components. AP forms and bends tubing from 1.50-inches to 5.00-inches in diameter for use in automobiles, light trucks, medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks.
Tube Bending is required in nearly every exhaust system. AP employs many types of bending; mandrel bending and compression bending are most common. Mandrel bending results in a premium pipe product. The process uses a precision mandrel positioned inside the tube during the bending process. The end result is a smooth, aesthetically pleasing appearance as it maintains the full inside tube diameter throughout the bend area. The use of mandrel bend pipes aids in reducing exhaust system back pressure. Compression bending results in some loss of inside tube diameter and is used where high-pressure flow is less critical.
AP is a leading manufacturer of steel straight tubing used in the automotive exhaust system market. The company's exhaust systems manufacturing process begins with steel tubing produced on its high-speed tube mill. Mufflers, catalytic converters, tail pipes, exhaust pipes and components require high-quality, corrosion-resistant, dimensionally precise steel tube.
The process begins with large commercial coils of aluminized steel and stainless steel. The company's in-house steel processing center slits these coils into precise widths which will be form through a series of rollers into the exact tubing diameter required for production or resale needs. AP tubing is electrically-seam welded and precision cut to required length. AP produces a variety of tubing diameters and styles. Diameters ranging from 1.50” to 3.00” are available.
ANSA offers a full line of durable, high-quality factory replacement exhaust system products to satisfy even the most hard-to-fit import vehicle. The company's complete line features direct-fit, stamped or welded exhaust systems and installation hardware that meet or exceed industry standards.

Today’s fleets of medium and heavy-duty trucks along with school buses are older and require more maintenance at a higher frequency due to age and mileage. Whether local delivery or long haul trucks, AP’s Heavy-Duty group has a broad range of exhaust and emission products to assist you in meeting your maintenance needs.
School buses also require constant maintenance and AP has the product line you need for the local school bus district fleet, individually owned and operated buses. Specially designed mufflers, exhaust pipes and accessories are available through AP to complete almost any job in the fleet garage.
AP’s Research and Development department is continuously reviewing and providing the additional products that are needed for today’s needs and the 2007 and up vehicles with emission equipment that must meet the increasingly stringent US EPA and California ARB exhaust gas and particulate controls.
North America’s group of agricultural, industrial, and forestry equipment is both broad and diverse. The unique nature of the market spectrum of equipment manufacturers and its product age, which can be 50 or more years old, requires a mixture of replacement parts that are either unique to the application or may be a group of modified parts adapted over the years to a more universal type of product. When the philosophy is “keep the equipment in service,” this market knows how to adapt.
AP’s agricultural, industrial and forestry group has exhaust products to meet any need you may have. The company's extensive coverage by make and model of agricultural equipment along with a large group of universal mufflers, spark arrestors, spouts, rain caps, and clamps allow for almost any combination of repair.
Today’s exhaust performance market continues to cover a broad spectrum of vehicles. The unique nature of this market is that a product demand is not based on vehicle age or use but instead on an owner’s desire for power and sound.
AP Exhaust Technologies’ performance products cover all highly popular vehicles that are the core of this performance market‘s demand. Whether it is mufflers, exhaust pipes that are high flow mandrel bent or standard bent pipes, cat-back diesel systems, chrome or stainless tips, specialty hangers or clamps, AP has you covered. Both Xlerator and Silverline exhaust products offer performance enthusiast many choices when selecting a performance exhaust system.
