Apollo Sprayers International, Inc. was founded with a singular mission–to provide the perfect finish. For over 48 years we have led the field in highly innovative Low Overspray HVLP products for Class A fine finishing.

Today, our state-of-the-art factory in Vista, California (USA) manufactures expertly engineered HVLP products using the latest techniques and sophisticated HVLP technology. Apollo President and CEO, John A. Darroch, succeeded his father in this family owned and operated company. Many staff members, including Bill Boxer, Senior Vice President, have worked with Apollo for 30 years or more. This leads to a long term and consistent vision and mission on the part of the company. Proof of our philosophy shows in more than 48 years of success and innovation.

Our High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) systems have revolutionized spray finishing with many key benefits. A major reduction in overspray yields a measurable savings on coatings and a safer work environment. Exceptional spray precision makes the whole job easier, and the results are absolutely flawless. Apollo Sprayers HVLP opens spray finishing opportunities that were impractical or impossible previously.

Every product we make is designed to meet or exceed the toughest air quality standards in the world. California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) accepted independent laboratory tests on Apollo Sprayers equipment. When the results were in, it was demonstrated that Apollo HVLP technology exceeded all of the established standards with certified 80% to 90% transfer efficiency. This interprets to a 40% – 50% savings on coating consumption.

These HVLP products are used for industrial and commercial finishing applications, primary and secondary, and in the UV sunless tanning industry, as well as in the quality-oriented home workshop. New uses develop all the time. Our ongoing commitment to research and development ensures that all Apollo Sprayers products provide the newest, most efficient and easiest-to-use HVLP technology.

We maintain constant research and development, using precision manufacturing that conforms to all TrueHVLP principles and continuously develop and test the most powerful turbospray motors in the world.
