APO Coating of Mass-produced Small Parts


In 2002, after four years managing a large coating workshop in the haberdashery industry, Antonio Pozo, a master craftsman vehicle painter and technician, founded APO for the coating of small parts and in 2005 made it into a limited company.

Since then, the team at APO GmbH Massenkleinteilbeschichtung has been enhancing the surfaces of small components and objects for almost all industrial sectors. With our modern machinery and automated processes, we already achieve a capacity of almost one billion coated components per year – and remain open to new innovations.




The team at APO Massenkleinteilbeschichtung can draw on almost 20 years of experience. We take care of your coating projects, components and requirements with care and commitment.

Our production colleagues ensure perfect surfaces and our customer service colleagues ensure smooth processes. We advise you on your concerns, ensure smooth order processing and are happy to answer your questions by phone or on site.
