ABCS has a rich history in the boiler controls industry. Our pattern of steady growth and success gives us confidence and determination to sustain our position as the best in the business.
In 1987, ABCS began servicing small companies in the Chicagoland area and has expanded its services to facilities across the United States. ABCS entered the boiler industry when Johannes (Hans) Burrink recognized a business opportunity when his current employer chose to stop providing service at non-utility steam generating facilities. Throughout the early 1990’s ABCS added more employees to accommodate its growing customer network. The business continued to provide a higher level of expertise with the addition of large equipment sales and general contracting experience.
In 1996, Robert Burrink joined forces with his father and was added to the ABCS team. Robert provided the idea of a potential future owner for the company and an immediate higher level of accounting, management, and general contracting skill set.
These areas of growth have allowed ABCS to contribute its engineering and services on a greater scale. This growth attracted exclusive manufactures representation contracts, which are still maintained relationships today. ABCS is intentional about using the most innovative technology with its offering of expert field service, instrument calibration, efficiency improvement, plant commissioning, and site specific training. ABCS has become a one stop shop for many steam generating plants throughout North America.
