In 2016, AFC turned 90!

First opening our doors in 1926, AFC has grown and evolved over the years to bring our customers innovative products that save time, labor and cost.

Many of these products are still in use today, and the innovation doesn’t stop there! AFC recently launched two new MC Luminary family products: MC Luminary HCF and MC Luminary MultiZone.
