Who We Are

Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) is a national association representing 21,000 merit shop construction and construction-related firms in 69 Chapters across the United States. ABC's membership represents all specialties within the U.S. construction industry and is comprised primarily of firms that perform work in the industrial and commercial sectors of the industry.

Our Mission

The mission of ABC is to be the voice of free enterprise within the construction industry, encouraging open competition based solely on merit, regardless of labor affiliation.


Our Objective

To provide members with an organization to deal with issues on an industry-wide basis. ABC's activities include:

  • Government representation

  • Education
  • Workforce development
  • Communications
  • Technology
  • National & chapter awards programs
  • Employee benefits
  • Information on best practices

ABC was founded in 1950 when seven contractors gathered in Baltimore, MD. to create an association based on the shared belief that construction projects should be awarded on merit to the most qualified and responsible low bidders. Their courage and dedication to the merit shop philosophy spread rapidly, and within time, ABC became the fastest-growing association in the United States.

Today, ABC is recognized as one of the leading organizations representing America's business community and the U.S. construction industry. We look forward to welcoming each of you to our ABC family and to the home of merit shop excellence. Thank you for visiting.
