December 13: ABCO Boston Branch Vocational Field Day, EXPO & Holiday Party.

Somerville, MA, December 3, 2018 – ABCO HVACR Supply + Solution’s Boston branch is hosting its 12th Annual Vocational Day, and its EXPO & Holiday Party on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at its 10 First Avenue, Somerville branch distribution center.


At the Vocational Day starting at 9:30 am until 12:30 pm, nearly 300 Somerville and greater Boston area students from 13 high schools and trade schools, plus principals, vice principals, guidance counselors and teachers are expected to attend. ABCO aims to acquaint and engage the area’s students and educational community with heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) manufacturers and contractors about the broad array of available rewarding careers and opportunities.

Peter Donati, ABCO Regional Vice President, said, “Our Vocational Day has introduced thousands of young Bostonians over the years with a ‘golden ticket’ to great careers. With 50% of HVACR professionals who keep our food safe and our homes comfortable expected to retire in the next ten years, we see – and love to show – the next generation all the tremendous opportunities for advancement in our field. Personally, my greatest reward is reuniting with so many young HVACR professionals who thank us for introducing them to the field five, ten or more years ago. But there are so many more fabulous career opportunities still to come.”

ABCO Boston will also host a free EXPO & Holiday Party for HVACR professionals -- starting at 12:30 pm and running to 4 pm. The EXPO will also feature an extensive line-up of HVACR manufacturers’ representatives, plus free lunch, giveaways and raffles.

Peter Donati added, “As always, our aim is to enjoy spending time with our ABCO family – our partners in HVACR contracting, manufacturing and educational instructors and facilitators. Learning, food, fun, friendship and some great giveaways – what’s not to like? It all comes wrapped in our thanks and appreciation.”
