About Apeks

Apeks Supercritical: Engineering subcritical and supercritical CO2 applications since 2001.

Apeks Supercritical has been designing and manufacturing botanical oil extraction systems that utilize subcritical and/or supercritical CO2 as a solvent since 2001.   Systems range in size from our smallest 1 liter benchtop system to our 40 liter production system and are fully automated for “lights out” operation.  We are veteran owned, have several degreed engineers on staff and all of our systems are proudly built in Johnstown, Ohio with as many American made parts and components as possible.   We have more than 350 systems being used in extraction applications across the US with more systems being added daily!

Customer focused, Service driven

Make every customer feel like they are our only customer” is our corporate philosophy.   We recognize the importance of customer orientation, and in addition to our headquarters in Johnstown, OH we also have a fully staffed service center in Denver, CO!

Veteran Owned, Veteran Operated and Made in the USA

Apeks Supercritical is proud to have more than 15% of it’s workforce employed by military veterans!  We proudly offer a 5% discount off all production systems to our active duty US military personnel (valid ID required) and US military veterans (DD-214 required)!

The President of Apeks Supercritical, Andy Joseph, is a 2 time Navy Achievement Medal recipient and served aboard the USS San Francisco (SSN-711) home ported out of Pearl Harbor Hawaii as an enlisted nuclear propulsion mechanic.  While on board, he learned principles of mechanical operation for all of the nuclear and support plant systems, machining, welding, and of course, discipline.  No one makes it through the Nuclear Navy without understanding two words – integrity and discipline.  Those words demonstrate how the US Navy has never had a reactor accident in the 60 years that nuclear reactors have been on ships and submarines.

This experience continues to be the foundation for all of the systems we build.

Growth on the Horizon

Even though we just moved into our brand new 17,000 sq ft manufacturing facility, we have already been planning for the next phase of our growth.  We have more than 8 acres available for building and site expansion, and did the initial site work to support our Phase 2 expansion – a 48,000 sq ft growth plan.  No date is set for the expansion to start, but once the need is established we are ready for our next major growth step!
