Get to know APS | James Racowski

by By Brandy Welvaert

Each month we introduce you to a different APS staff member here on the blog with a feature we call "Get to Know APS."

When you purchase an alternator from APS, you can count on our very own James G. Racowski to help make your project come to life. Jimmy is known for his humility, often taking little credit for his work -- but the truth is that he is a master of his craft!
