Who We Are


Our History

In October 1999, APS was developed and launched as a division of Dairylea Cooperative, Inc. under the direction of F. Brandon Mallory, who was serving as an agricultural labor consultant. Mr. Mallory transitioned APS into a successful, independent organization in December 2000.

Under Mr. Mallory’s supervision, APS member clientele has grown from 1 member business in New York to over 100 member businesses in 18 different states from Maine to Georgia to Minnesota.
