We Help Alleviate Stress for General Contractors
We operate a fab-shop for component package assembly, pipe spooling and control group pre-fab, which results in a higher-quality installation, regardless of difficult weather or job conditions.
We understand the special considerations and protocols that come with using ammonia refrigeration. We have experience designing, installing and maintaining ammonia systems for a variety of different customers, needs and settings.
We have the in-house designers, mechanical capabilities and industry knowledge to plan and design the right industrial refrigeration system for your organization and situation that fits within your budget.
We have designed and installed refrigeration systems for millions of cubic feet of cooler and freezer space for cold storage warehouses and food distribution centers. Plus, we offer remote monitoring so you can keep an eye on temperatures no matter where you are.
Layton Construction, Apex Partnered on White Claw Facility
At Apex, a lot of projects we take on are owner direct, meaning that the owner/organizer of the project hires us directly — but that’s not always the case. On projects that involve new construction, for example, we’re occasionally brought on by the general contractor(s). This was the case for a new White Claw brewery expansion in Glendale, Arizona. Layton Construction, who was tasked with building additional cold storage space, contracted Apex to handle the refrigeration equipment.
But it wasn’t just a standard HVAC project. The brewery needed an explosion-rated refrigeration system since the hard seltzers are brewed with ethanol, a highly flammable gas. That required us to install ethanol sensors 12 inches off the floor because if there was ever an ethanol leak, the facility would be at risk of catching fire — or even exploding. We also hung cooling units with explosion-proof motors from the ceiling. That way, if one of the ethanol sensors ever did go off, a damper would automatically open and the cooling units would act as exhaust fans, blowing the ethanol out of the top of the factory. Because this was a highly specialized cold storage project with real risks involved, Layton knew they could trust Apex to get the job done safely and effectively.
