APC Group, Inc. Announces Frito-Lay Includes Arctic Leashes to North America Facility Standards

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - October 20, 2010) -  APC Group, Inc. (OTC: APCU) announced today that Frito-Lay of Plano, TX has included APC Group, Inc.'s Arctic Leash into their Warehouse and Distribution Center Facility Standards. Frito-Lay will be providing Arctic Leashes at the ends of single loaded parking stalls, in the middle or on the island for double loaded stalls, and at loading doors where delivery vehicles may be left over night.

Frito-Lay North America runs about 50 food manufacturing and processing plants and approximately 1,700 warehouses, distribution centers, and offices.

Ken Forster, President and CEO of APC, commented, "We are very pleased to have our Arctic Leash watertight cord reels included within Frito-Lay's Warehouse and Distribution Center Facility Standards. I remember the day Keith Massa called me from Frito-Lay Corporate after seeing the Arctic Leash on the History Channel's show, Modern Marvels, and inquired about the Arctic Leash. I was very curious why Frito-Lay in Texas would want an Arctic Leash. As I recall, Keith commented that with many fleet diesel vehicles in the U.S. and Canada, he believed the Arctic Leash would cost effectively reduce the time wasted while waiting for diesel vehicles to warm as well as reducing green house gases and lowering emissions affected by cold starting of vehicles regardless of the location." 

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.

APC Group's mission is to be the undisputed leader in the innovative design, marketing, sales and distribution of water-tight retractable power cord reels and proprietary extension cord products and accessories. The company markets and distributes products through media attention, conventional advertising, independent sales representatives, distributors, Web sites, and mass retail department stores and chains throughout the United States and Canada.
