APCO is looking for some new attractive color designs for future wings. The chosen designs will be used in serial production models.
"Setting Future Standards" is not just a slogan.
We at APCO are happy to announce that we have further upgraded our production facility with state of the art Laser cutting technology. We have added a new Laser Cutting Custom Machine 10[m] long and 2[m] wide.
This new laser cutter will allow us greater flexibility and faster delivery times in the very near future. The advantages of this laser are not limited to time saving, but also accuracy in cutting, which translates to a cleaner, better performing wing.
The options that have now opened to us with this new laser cutting machine have encouraged us to start a new program in APCO:
"Personally Signed Wings"! - with every new wing, we will offer the option of a personal signature which we will laser cut and apply to your new wing. For more
