APMEX Improves Ranking to #42 Top Internet Retailer

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK--(Marketwired - May 19, 2016) - APMEX, Inc. was recently listed by Internet Retailer® as #42 out of the Top 500 Internet Retailers in all of North America and remained #1 among specialty e-retailers. This is the second consecutive year APMEX has been listed in the magazine's top 500, increasing its rank from #46. APMEX was ranked #1 specialty e-retailer in 2015 as well.

Each year, Internet Retailer® releases their list of top 500 e-retailers in North America. APMEX made their private-company holdings public for the first time in 2015 to be considered in these rankings. In 2016, APMEX is ahead of many familiar names such as Land's End, Cabela's Inc., Nike and many more.

"Our wide assortment of over 10,000 products includes not only bullion items, but semi-numismatic and collectible pieces as well and is a big part of our success," APMEX Chief Executive Officer Ken Lewis said. "We also work hard to be relevant in online search, share valuable educational material online to assist in the buying decision and continue to leverage technology to provide a best-in-class shopping experience and wow the customer with how we execute to maintain our 98% customer satisfaction approval rating."

APMEX was founded by President Scott Thomas when he began selling his grandfather's old coin collection. The business has grown from a small shop in Edmond, Oklahoma to the former Federal Reserve building in downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Being in the heart of Oklahoma City, APMEX is a 'hidden gem' within the community. With more than 200 employees, APMEX handles every aspect of the business, from operations to product preparation and shipping, directly from their facilities. Providing this kind of service is one of the many ways APMEX stands out from its competition.

"It is a great honor to be recognized by Internet Retailer® Top 500 for the second year in a row and to move up within the rankings. We work daily to improve our customers' shopping experience and take great pride in being an innovative e-commerce industry leader," Vice President of Digital Marketing Jean-Marx Mantilla said. "We enjoy the work we do and look forward to the future as we look for more ways to surprise and delight our customers with new digital experiences."
