ABCO Automation, Inc. was invited by Business North Carolina magazine and Cherry Bekaert LLP to attend this year’s North Carolina Mid-Market FAST 40 awards ceremony. Each year the North Carolina magazine takes nominations for the award; companies on the FAST 40 List must meet exacting eligibility criteria to show three years of sustained revenue and employment growth. This year the honorees celebrated with a golf outing and luncheon held at the Pinehurst Resort, Pinehurst, N.C. “We were thrilled when we learned that ABCO made the FAST 40 List,” says Brad Kemmerer, president and CEO, ABCO Automation. “We could not have achieved this award without a great group of employees, including engineers, project managers, fabricators, machinists, assemblers, and support staff, who enable us to be the company we are today. Dedication to our clients combined with the ABCO family is the best recipe for us to earn repeat business and gain new business.”
ABCO Automation is an automation specialist for robotics, turnkey packaging lines, controls, custom-built equipment, assembly, material handling, inspection equipment, and build-to-print machines.
