Engineers and Technical Staff
The Schneller Aesthetic Engineers and APL Lab team are always looking for ways to innovate and expand services to customers. The make up of our team includes two Aesthetic Engineers and seven technicians. Together, they have more than 50 years of experience developing and producing a wide range of colors, finishes and textures to fit your unique brand needs.

This provides you, the customer, with fast, accurate proofing and prototyping of design reproduction and laminated materials with all appropriate documentation.
We recognize that color can be subjective and is all about personal preference. To satisfy your needs, we enhance visual color evaluation by using specialized equipment, like color measurement devices and software for formulation and quality control, to digitally measure and communicate colors –whether it be across the same material or a range of our materials.
Often, our sampling shows you different ways of arriving at a design solution, helping you speed up the decision-making process.
