PLANO, Texas, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- American Industrial Partners announced today the appointment of Larry Denbrock as President and Chief Executive Officer of acpi™. Formerly known as Armstrong Cabinets, acpi is one of the largest kitchen cabinet manufacturers in North America selling under the Echelon Cabinetry and Advanta Cabinets brands. 

Larry Denbrock is named President and CEO of acpi™

Larry has over 30 years of experience in the building products industry, most recently as President of the ASSA ABLOY Door & Perimeter Security Group, which grew organically and through acquisitions to become the market leader. Additionally, he has held a number of other President and Executive-Level Positions at ASSA ABLOY and Masco Corporation, including Delta Faucets and American Metals. Larry has a BSBA from Central Michigan University and his MBA from Butler University.

Speaking about his new appointment at acpi, Mr. Denbrock stated, "I am excited to come on-board at acpi. In the eighteen months since the acquisition a solid foundation has been established, such as a 35 percent increase in production capacity and the recent re-branding conversion from Armstrong Cabinets to Echelon Cabinetry and Advanta Cabinets. We look forward to translating this into more aggressive market share growth and even better buyer experiences."

Last week acpi announced the launch of two new brands to offer their customers new tools, better product value and more professional customer support. acpi will meet an increasing demand in a market currently challenged by supply and service issues, through the creation of their two new cabinetry lines: Echelon Cabinetry for home builders, dealers and remodelers and Advanta Cabinets for multifamily clients and architects. "These new brands are tailored to meet the unique needs of our customers and the entire acpi organization is committed to meeting and exceeding their expectations."
