Coming Face-to Face with Your Next Opportunity: 35th Annual ABCO EXPO Showcased HVAC and Refrigeration Innovations.
ABCO HVACR Supply + Solutions hosted its 35th annual ABCO EXPO, the largest independent HVAC and Refrigeration trade show in the Northeast on Wednesday, March 9th, at Terrace on the Park in Flushing, NY.


An energized gathering of 4,000 HVAC and Refrigeration manufacturers, contractors, builders, engineers, architects, students and instructors attended to engage with the nearly 200 exhibits, product demonstrations, many Tech Tips classes—and each other.

“From all over the Northeast—from Washington, DC to Boston— a great number of customers, partners and students came to see all the latest innovations from the industry’s leading manufacturers and suppliers—eye-to-eye and in-person,” said Hugh Drumm, ABCO EVP of HVAC Sales. “Our ABCO EXPO continues to establish and renew relationships and promote the exchange of important information and ideas in an exciting format.”

ABCO CEO Michael Senter stated at the exhibitor luncheon: “ABCO’s success comes from our intensity, integrity, honesty and independence. We are a family at ABCO, and this dedication and devotion to each other helps us deliver a distinct qualitative difference to our customers and partners.”

ABCO is the industry’s definitive source for authoritative information about HVAC/R commercial and residential technologies, products and specifications. Through its annual ABCO EXPO and its many ongoing ABCO University courses, ABCO helps train HVAC professionals in this increasingly technologically advanced field.

An essential component of ABCO training involves attracting and developing students to pursue HVAC careers. These represent important new domestic jobs to succeed in the new economy. Good-paying HVAC/R jobs are in tremendous demand in the New York metro area and throughout the U.S. Recent research reports conducted by the HVACR Workforce Development Foundation state that current demand for HVACR employment—jobs that cannot be exported—far outstrips the supply of HVAC/R workers.

Dramatizing how ABCO and the HVAC/R field has provided excellent careers for multiple generations, Mr. Senter also recognized ABCO employees celebrating their 20-year anniversaries at the company with presents and praise.

In addition, ABCO believes in giving back to the community through a variety of charitable initiatives. At the ABCO EXPO—in partnership with Luxaire and others—ABCO again sponsored a Make-A-Wish Foundation raffle that raised over $5,000 for children with life-threatening illnesses. Since 2002, ABCO and its partners have raised more than $1.5 million for Make-A-Wish Metro New York & Western New York.

ABCO University “Tech Tips” classes at ABCO EXPO covered a range of the industry’s most important new developments. These included:

Luxaire Commercial—Introduction to Luxaire SE control board and LX Residential Package systems;

Luxaire Residential—Luxaire Revolutionary Residential Product Launch: Learn why YOU should take notice;

Mitsubishi—Mitsubishi M&P New Product Update: Whole Home Solutions & WI-FI Controls;

Copeland—Emerson E360: Prepare for Changes Coming to Our Industry;

Chemours—Regulations and New Generation Refrigerants: What you and your customers should know;

Heatcraft—Refrigeration, Regulations and Responsive Controls (QRC): Learn all about the upcoming EPA and DOE refrigeration regulations; the Quick Response Controller from Heatcraft and what it all means to you and your customers.

ABCO EXPO has become the go-to show for major HVAC and Refrigeration manufacturers, contractors, builders and architects. Admission was free of charge. ABCO Applications Specialists, Sales Consultants and team members from all of ABCO’s locations throughout the Northeast were on hand to help everyone stay on top of this rapidly evolving industry.

ABCO HVAC/R Supply + Solutions was founded in 1949 as a company servicing Refrigeration firms door-to-door. Under the leadership of CEO Michael Senter, ABCO has grown into the nation’s leading independent HVAC/R resource, with 18 branch locations throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. The ABCO EXPO exemplifies the company’s ongoing commitment to sharing knowledge and providing outstanding service to its customers and partners.
