ABOUT THE COMPANY

AP&G, a manufacturer of products for rodent, insect and mosquito management, was founded in 1952 as Atlantic Paste & Glue in Brooklyn, N.Y., by Moses Frisch, an immigrant chemist from Hungary. Steve Frisch, current president and CEO, joined his father in 1972, after graduation from Brooklyn College. The third generation of the family working at the business today includes Jonathan Frisch, VP of sales and marketing, and Jeffrey Frisch, VP of operations.

In 1977, AP&G introduced the Catchmaster brand, which led to its focus on developing adhesives for pest management applications. Its products continue to be American-made, and the company currently supplies more than 70 countries worldwide.
