Our Beginning

APG began in the early 1970′s when two employees of UMI Company Inc. (UMI) designed and developed a steel cash drawer. In 1978, APG was formed as a separate company for the assembly, marketing, and sales of the cash drawer product line.

Our Journey

At the end of the first year, APG had ten employees and leased a 7,000 square foot space in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.  As the business grew, APG eventually expanded to 14,000 square feet at that location. In the fall of 1993, APG moved with the Atlas Manufacturing painting facility, a sister company, into a 40,000 square foot building. This facility has been expanded to 60,000 feet and is now dedicated solely to APG’s manufacturing and delivery of cash drawer products. In 2008, UMI sold a majority of its interests to a group of private investors and the APG Management team, and became APG Cash Drawer, LLC.  The top management team in 2011 has over 85 years of combined experience in the company.

Our Reputation

During our history of more than 30 years, APG Cash Drawer has built a reputation as the supplier of choice for the most discriminating and demanding buyers in the industry, with the most durable and dependable cash drawers in the industry.  APG has won a significant number of industry awards, has been recognized as the leader in the industry in a variety of ways, has become a trusted partner to the largest systems integrators and solution providers in the industry, and has more products installed in the convenience, hospitality, and gas service station industries than any other cash drawer manufacturer.  APG recently shipped (March 2011) its 3 millionth cash drawer, and its products can be found in a variety of retail environments, including:
