ABCO Celebrates 70 Years
Expo offers hand-on experience, networking opportunities
LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y. — ABCO HVACR Supply + Solutions hosted its 2019 ABCO Expo on March 13. Celebrating ABCO’s 70th year, an energized gathering of more than 3,500 HVACR manufacturers, contractors, builders, engineers, students, and instructors attended to engage with over 180 exhibits and product demonstrations, and to network with each other.
As Mitsubishi Electric’s premier distributor, ABCO introduced the advanced CITY MULTI® N-Generation VRF equipment that delivers high efficiencies and heating capabilities in a smaller footprint. The new, high-efficiency Hyper-Heat PUMY Series was also featured at the expo.
American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning showcased its Silver 16 and Platinum 19 Low Profile Series, designed to perform in the tightest of spaces, as well as the S8X1 and S8X2 single-stage furnaces that are rated with two-stage outdoor systems. The ABCO/American Standard Residential Package Deals, an exclusive ABCO resource, were also released at the show.
“As we celebrate our 70th anniversary, I credit our success to the trust ABCO has worked hard to build over those many years,” said ABCO CEO Michael Senter. “I also acknowledge our teamwork and friendships formed to strengthen that trust.”
ABCO University “Tech Talks” featured at the show covered a range of the industry’s most important new developments from Chemours, Heatcraft, Mitsubishi Electric, Emerson, ZoneFirst, and Russell/Kramer.
Parker/Sporlan proved that seeing is believing with ZoomLock. Hordes of contractors and students got to experience the “flame-free revolution” with a hands-on demo of the 10-second copper fitting connection, no brazing necessary.
Luxaire, Mueller, Scotsman, Honeywell Intl. Inc., and other industry leaders were also on-hand to meet and present their new products.
In addition, ABCO customers and partners showed their community support with the Make-A-Wish raffle that raised thousands of dollars for children with life-threatening illnesses.
