|Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) is a national trade association for the construction industry which actively promotes the merit shop form of construction. From a modest start by six Baltimore contractors in 1950, ABC has enjoyed a growing membership, now totaling more than 23,000 firms nationally and over 800 in the Wisconsin chapter, each dedicated to the principles of free enterprise. These beliefs translate into a healthy, competitive and professional climate, the results of which are proudly reflected in ABC member’s construction accomplishments.
ABC is the fastest-growing construction trade
association in the country because ABC supports the sound merit shop
philosophy at the heart of the free enterprise system. The merit shop
is a force for the economy and efficiency in construction, regardless
of organizational affiliation. The merit shop is union and open shop
firms working side-by-side, free of interference, providing on-time,
on-budget construction with safety, quality and cost effectiveness as
our goal. ABCs pursuit of free enterprise in construction has set the standard for all other associations to follow.
Throughout the country, ABC is an effective force in business development, education, labor relations and industry legislation. ABC is comprised of general contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, and associates who believe in the merit shop form of construction. Today, merit shop contractors perform over 70 percent of all construction nationwide.
