Why ?

Why do our customers work with us? Architectural Builders Supply (ABS) provides solutions for customers. “Chicago was not built on an 8 week lead time” stated Dick Haskins of Brookwood Builders, a Forest Park based carpentry contractor. “He is exactly right” says Rich Howard, owner of ABS. Howard states “the bottom line is this: Customers call us up and ask for a rabbit to be pulled out of a hat. This is our business model. We deliver for the customer when the time schedule for the job is tight. If we had 8 weeks to deliver the doors and frames, our jobs would be easy, perhaps even boring. But that’s not reality”.
