Ron founded APR in 1986 out of his home in Bel Air, Maryland with a phone and a rolodex. Since then, he has seen the company through 2 financial crises, a dramatic change towards manufacturing components, and an increase of revenue up to our current level of $16.4 million annually. Ron has since passed the role of President on to Brian Kelleher, but still holds a strong sales role with our Northeastern Accounts from Boston, Massachusetts.
Since taking over APR from Founder Ronald Kelleher, Brian has built and managed manufacturing capabilities, partner relationships, and has broadened APRís manufacturing and service offering to include new materials, parts, and solutions. Brian now focuses on managing the growth that APR has attained to achieve new goals for our continued service. Brian operates out of our Lynchburg, Virginia facility, along with regular visits to our various locations.
