If you're a little more curious about who we are, where we came from and the ABP culture, read on and check out the ABP Promise as well.
Once upon a time, way back in 2001 - when Internet Protocol (IP) was fresh and SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) was a new and emerging technology - ABP Technology was born. Many experts thought IP technology wouldn't last and didn't have much clout compared to the proven Analog solutions. Only the foolish or daring would leave behind the safe, reliable technology of TDMA, Digital Telephony or coax-based analog CCTV for IP-based solutions. Well Robert Messer, ABP Tech's CEO, may have been both because he started a company based on the promise and potential he saw in IP technology and coupled it with a distribution model based on selecting a narrow portfolio of new leading products, state-of-the-art distribution center and value-added services needed for deploying new emerging technology safely and profitably. And look where we are now! IP technology isn't only mainstream, it's continually being improved to make advances in workplaces and homesteads alike that were only dreamed of in previous generations. And that's the magic of technology.
So it turns out that Robert knew what he was doing when he put all his chips down on IP technology. Perhaps he got lucky; or maybe, just maybe he's a true thought-leader for the industry and really has a knack for finding and answering the industry's pain points - at least that's what we believe. We follow that vision daily in everything we offer to our Technology Partners - from our best-of-breed portfolio to our customer experience and support. Interesting enough even our business model as a specialty distributor is different than our industry peers with ABP being a lot more focused on a strong long-term and two-way relationship with our partners.
