ABS has its own in-house QC lab to ensure proper quality of the product we sell. This sets us apart from our competition
The first months with Bufab
Our first months with Bufab has been a welcoming and exciting experience. Bufab has the same goals and ideals as ABS, with top priorities being taking care of employees and ensuring customer satisfaction. Bufab’s term “Solutionist” is very fitting for ABS and we are happy to adopt the term. Our teams come together almost daily to resolve and create solutions for issues whether they be internal or external, so it is very comforting for the ABS family to have become a Bufab sister company, knowing that the goals and ideals will remain the same.
The future as a Bufab sister company
We are excited for the future growth and new opportunities that being a Bufab sister company will bring us. Our team is already working on some very nice opportunities in cooperation with sister companies and we hope to see many more opportunities moving forward. Helping each other grow and build sales, while making new friends among the Bufab group, will be a pleasure for all of us. The future is looking bright and we are confident that being part of the Bufab group will strengthen our position in US market.
