A look at ABE's commercial/industrial division

As a leader in residential sales, installation and service, ABE Doors and Windows is very familiar to consumers around the valley. A part of our business that may not be quite as well known is our commercial/industrial sales and service division. But this group is just as important to those who rely on it. The commercial/industrial division delivers every day on the individual needs of our business and government customers.

The market here is broad - retail and wholesale corporations, service companies, local municipalities, warehouse operations, industrial plants and more. They need quality products, foolproof installation and round-the-clock access to expert service. With ABE Doors and Windows they get it all.

According to Gary Conrad, commercial/industrial sales and service manager, his customers need a range of doors and accessories as varied as the products and services they provide. "We do garage doors, roll-ups, rolling service doors, rolling steel fire doors, counter doors for kitchens, dock shields and shelters, and much more," he said. "We also install as retrofits a lot of steel-framed hollow metal entry doors."

"ABE Doors and Windows is a long-established distributor for Raynor Garage Doors and Cornell Iron Works, which build commercial sectional doors and rolling door products, respectively," Gary said. "We also represent other leading manufacturers of doors and accessory products."

In new or retrofit installations, he said, several critical advantages guide customers' selection of ABE Doors and Windows. "They're concerned about the quality of the products. They want a very service-oriented provider. They need good lead times, and with us they get same-day service and 24-hour emergency service."

"We try to put ourselves in the customer's place," he said. If there's a problem with a door not closing, it can't wait a few days." Getting there promptly and handling things correctly the first time makes all the difference.

A.B.E. is Going Green

Earth Day - born April 22, 1970, when 20 million American citizens took a united stand and became consciously dedicated to creating permanent change that would protect and preserve the world that we live in and thrive from - has become one of the largest civic observances in the world.  Since 1990 Earth Day has gone global, and this year more than 1 billion people in 192 countries took part in the 42nd Anniversary of Earth Day.  Earth Day 2012 focused on uniting communities in their efforts to spread awareness and make positive eco-friendly changes in order to mobilize the Earth.

We, here at A.B.E. Doors & Windows, are always striving to better ourselves - whether it is professionally as a business serving others within the community, or by personally challenging ourselves to learn from our experiences and willingly accepting positive change in order to grow.  We have taken an active interest in educating ourselves and fully support the fight to create a clean and healthy environment.  Since 2008, we have been diligently recycling all of our paper, aluminum, plastic, and glass products on a weekly basis.  Within the last month, we have also decided that we will be going paperless, wanting to conserve paper-use and diminish waste.  In order to do this, we have purchased high speed scanners and are transferring every paper document that passes through our office onto the computer.  Not only does this eliminate clutter, but it makes all documents easily accessible.  Now, when we ask our customers to provide their mailing address, we are also giving them the option to share with us their email address as well.  Online communication is not only a faster method of communication than mail delivery, but it is convenient for both parties and will greatly decrease the amount of paper that we use over time.

These changes, though they may seem insignificant in comparison to all that is taking place every day, are just another positive step forward in making our business and community a better place.  Being conscientious about caring for our environment is much bigger than A.B.E. Doors & Windows:  it reaches out and encompasses the world around us.  We are just a small piece of the puzzle; but when we are combined with the many other individuals, organizations, businesses, and governments, who are working to protect and preserve our earth, it truly radiates hope for future generations to come.
