Alpha Products International Inc., API Inc. first opened in 1998. We manufactured CATV equipment and created our own brand label of cable television boxes and we maintain FCC license and approval on our equipment. We sold our wholesale CATV equipment company and website www.worldbasesuppliers.com in October 2003. We still manufacture and sell remote controls for the boxes that we sold for so many years. We shipped worldwide each day. We did not sell retail.
May 2001 Alpha Products International Inc. after many months of hard work and development created X-Treme Electric Scooters Wholesale and our website click here After many trial and errors we manufactured our first brand of electric scooters. It was a huge success but no one had any idea of what our success would amount to. Now that we are known in the industry to sell scooters that do not break and rarely need service or parts, we find our self taking on new dealers each and every day. The demand for the name X-Treme grows with each day. We do not sell retail.
September 11th 2001 was a sad day for the nation. Alpha Products International Inc. then saw a new opportunity. The demand for American flags seemed very high. We decided to join in on what we thought would be a business that would end after the flag craze died down. We opened up American Flags Wholesale under Alpha Products International Inc. and we started manufacturing our own flags. We quickly found that their was a real need for wholesale flags. We started by offering just one size flag and we manufactured 10,000 of them. We built a website called www.american-flags-wholesale.com . Before we knew it we were adding multiple size and shaped flags to our inventory.
Now we manufacture all sizes of flags and our inventory consists of around 1/2 Million pieces in stock at any given time. We found that the reason we grew so quickly was due to our strict quality control policy and our top notch quality flags. We now ship anywhere from 1000 to 10,000 flags per day. We are also found at the top of each search engine on the Internet easily by anyone looking for wholesale flags or wholesale American Flags along with many other keyword searches such as hand held flags, 3x5 foot flags and car window flags.
December 2002 we designed and manufactured 25,000 pieces of what we call the strongest car window flag on the market. Our costs were a little higher than our competition for this new design of car window flag that cannot be torn and we were not sure if the market would pay a few extra cents for this high quality flag. We quickly found out that not only would the market bear the extra costs, the demand for this new flag would go through the roof in a matter of 1 weeks time. 1 Week after we received our first shipment we were sold out and we had over 50,000 on back order paid for by the first customers that bought up the first 25,000. Now we manufacture them 100,000 pieces at a time. This was yet another lesson for Alpha Products International Inc. that quality is everything.
July 2002 we realized that our wholesale flag business was doing so well that we needed to start offering Lapel pins wholesale to the public. We then created Lapel Pins Wholesale and a website called www.lapel-pins-wholesale.com We now manufacture the same lapel pins that you see TV news anchors wearing, the President of the United States wearing and many others as well. We generally manufacture each pin in 100,000 lots and we then resell them in quantities of 100 or more on our wholesale websites.
