Abacus Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electrical is now officially open in Austin, Texas. Abacus has served generations of Texans as one of the leading home service providers in the state since 2003, and is excited to start helping Austinites with all of their plumbing, air conditioning and electrical needs.
Abacus' grand opening celebration was held on May 7 at its new Austin headquarters located at 2105 Denton Drive in North Austin and streamed online via Facebook. Abacus' founder and CEO, Alan O'Neill cut the official grand opening ribbon. "We're just super excited to be in Austin. It's an amazing town, it's a great place to be and it's an even better place to come for work," O'Neill said. "We've been in Houston for 18 years and we felt it was time to spread out wings a little and as we looked around Texas we thought, what better place to be than Austin."
O'Neill spoke about the incredible partnerships that Abacus has already established within the Austin community. Among them is Abacus' partnership with Austin FC and the announcement that Abacus will serve as the organization's official plumbing, air conditioning and electrical partner. Alison Roscoe, vice president of corporate partnerships with Austin FC, was in attendance and presented Abacus Plumbing with the team's first official, signed Austin FC jersey to mark the beginning of this partnership.
Duane Moore, general manager of Abacus in Austin, said, "I'm thrilled to be launching with two great partners; Austin Pets Alive and Austin FC. We're already having extraordinary results and our main goal is to provide five-star service to all our fellow Austinites.
Abacus is also a strong supporter of the work Austin Pets Alive (APA) is doing in the Austin community. A representative from the non-profit was also in attendance and Mr. O'Neill presented a $1,000 donation to APA as a symbol of their growing partnership and support. Austin Pets Alive was able to bring a dog that is up for adoption to the grand opening that goes by the name of "Charlie Brown", which O'Neill noted is the same name of the first employee he ever hired to work for Abacus and who to this day continues to be a valued employee with the company.
O'Neill also unveiled an official grand opening proclamation plaque from Governor Greg Abbott. Abacus guests, employees and partners were able to mingle and enjoy lobster rolls from Garbo's Fresh Maine Lobster food truck and were in attendance as a lucky viewer of the virtual ceremony was names as the winner of two tickets to a much coveted Austin FC home game.
