APL has been committed to communities of New Zealand for more than 45 years, and is proud to have a wide range of sector and sport sponsorship relationships.

We’re behind the Vantage Black Sticks Men and Women, Kiwi rowing pair Eric Murray and Hamish Bond, Magic netball team, the Chiefs rugby team, the Avantidrome and Cycling NZ.

Supporting success in our industry is also part of APL’s sponsorship programme, as one of the Waikato region’s biggest employers. We are the primary sponsor of the New Zealand Institute of Architects Graduate Development Programme and ‘Design’ lecture series. APL is also a major sponsor of ADNZ (Architectural Designers of New Zealand).

APL has a keen interest in motorsports, with Altherm sponsoring the New Zealand Jetsprint Championship, the Altherm Jetsprint Team and Josh Coppins Motocross Team, Vantage sponsoring New Zealand rally drivers Emma Gilmour and Ben Hunt.

In the building sector, Altherm, First and Vantage brands have joined the Apprentice of the Year competition (through the Registered Master Builders) as a national supporting sponsor. Altherm is also naming rights sponsor for New Zealand's richest architectural prize, the Home NZ Magazine Home of the Year award.
