APL - Celebrating 50 years

Capturing 50 years in 4 minutes is never an easy task, so we went back to the moments and the people that made it all possible. This is our story - the relationships, the growth, the lessons learned and the simple philosophy that little by little, day by day, we will keep on getting better. That is how we grew, together. Businesses are only ever going one of two ways and we’ve never been ones to go backwards. So while this film looks to the past, it really is a celebration of momentum, bravery, development and what we can achieve as a team. It is also an opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you to all of our people, customers, suppliers and the communities that have made our success possible. There is no such thing as an easy road. Perseverance, trust and real relationships have been key to navigating the ups and the downs. As the film says, we’re “50 years young” and some will argue that we’ve only just begun.
