"We have been a member of ABC since we started our business in 2008. We find great value in their apprenticeship program, the prevailing wage fringe benefit program through The Contractor's Plan, legal support and networking with other merit shop contractors. We also appreciate the lobbying efforts in local, state and federal government on behalf of the membership."
-Scott Good, Goodco Mechanical, Inc.
“Kevin E. Raker Construction has benefited greatly from our ABC membership. Our chapter staff has helped us educate our Safety committee, field employees, and office staff with many of the resources offered by ABC. We’ve stayed informed of the government affairs that affect our merit shop company as well as network with like-minded companies at the many events scheduled throughout the years. The membership is well worth the annual dues paid.”
-Kevin Raker, Kevin E. Raker Construction, Inc.
"R.H. Marcon, Inc. has been an ABC Central PA chapter member for over 30 years. Our company's founder, Ray Marcon, who previously served as ABC Central PA Board president, recognized very early on the value that ABC brings to merit shop contractors. From the extremely effective education and training programs that ABC offers to the work that ABC does in Harrisburg and Washington to protect the rights of merit shop contractors, we view our ABC membership as essential. ABC was instrumental in working to avoid the establishment of a Project Labor Agreement on the SCI Benner Township prison which allowed us to be the successful bidder on one of the largest roofing projects that we have ever done. Additionally, ABC gives us the opportunity to meet and work with fellow open shop firms to deliver high quality construction projects to owners throughout the central Pennsylvania region. The value that our ABC membership has brought to our organization down through the years has been instrumental in helping to make us the company that we are today."
-Paul Tomczuk, R.H Marcon, Inc.
“ABC has meant so much to the growth and strength of Providence Engineering Corporation. As Associate Members, we are grateful for the opportunity to stand with our Contractor Clients in serving the Industry according to the Merit Shop philosophy. We don’t find another entity that better represents us in advocacy on both the State and Federal Levels, and appreciate the Professional Development Opportunities that our staff enjoy through ABC.”
-Dan Fichtner, Providence Engineering Corporation
“ABC stood out as the obvious choice for an open shop contractor trying to expand their business. The tools ABC has available, ranging from informative seminars, decades of experience, knowledgeable and helpful staff, and the representation of the interests on independent contractors made joining the association an easy decision.”
