Founded by Joe and Becky Nussbaum, ACP began in a single-wide trailer house in 1986, and the kitchen table of the trailer house became the world headquarters of ACP International. It would be stating the obvious to say we began small. We worked side-by-side, mainly because there wasn’t room to work back-to-back. We manufactured our first fiber splice sleeves in that trailer house, and we were able to do it successfully. Because our costs were low, we were able to do better than break-even our first year. Year after year, we invested our company profits back into the business, adding product lines and equipment.
