Owner & President
As president of Arizona Polymer Flooring (APF), Daniel Owen oversees operations, business development and strategy, customer service and product development. Daniel brings a unique perspective to the helm of APF, having worked in nearly every department and position within the company. His parents, Dean and Carol Owen, founded the company in 1985. They exposed him to the industry at an early age, and he flourished from the time he swept the plant floors to his current role as president, which he assumed in 2012.
Daniel started his career at APF in the production department in 1992, performing general labor and quality control. He also served as a chemical processor and pigmenter as the company grew and refined its product lines. On the side, he worked as a concrete coating subcontractor, acquiring a deeper understanding of raw materials and chemistries used in the industry.
Daniel transitioned into technical sales and contractor training at APF four years later, where he gained invaluable knowledge of the challenges contractors face and the solutions required to meet their needs. He also started playing a critical role in the formulation of new products during this time.
In 2006, Daniel was promoted to vice president. In this position, he implemented new business systems and procedures, production practices, customer service practices, environmental initiatives and dynamic marketing campaigns – all of which contributed to APF’s most significant growth phase to date and positioned the company as an emerging industry leader nationwide. Additionally, he has been intimately involved the development of several new product lines, including CastorCrete, Cem-Rez and the Polyurea 5000 series.
As president, Daniel is focused on bringing additional value to long-term customer relationships and expanding APF’s footprint into new vertical markets.
Daniel resides in the Central Phoenix area with his wife, Leane, and their two boys. In his spare time, he enjoys weightlifting, concerts, dining out and following the Arizona Cardinals.
