Abacus Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electrical, is making news in 2023 for its heightened commitment to the Austin community, beginning with the expansion of its Athlete of the Week program with media partner KVUE.
"In addition to the iconic football rising stars that seem to be bred here in the heart of Texas, our Athlete of the Week program will now honor athlete scholars in additional activities such as track, basketball, volleyball, cheerleading, and marching band, among others," said Thos Graham, general manager of Abacus Plumbing in Austin. "The athletes we honor have made a significate impact in their sport or activity while maintaining the educational standards that tee them up for success. Upon being named the Abacus Athlete of the Week, they will receive an Athlete of the Week scholarship check and on-air recognition for their achievements."
Alan O'Neill, founder and CEO of Abacus Plumbing, said, "With parallel tenets to the Athlete of the Week program, Abacus Plumbing was built upon the pillars of honesty, integrity, teamwork, and respect. Our purpose statement was a collaborative effort that incorporated the representative ideas of the managers and employees at Abacus Austin. It reads:
'We are an enthusiastic team of committed leaders in the plumbing and HVAC and electrical industry working together as one. Our purpose is to treat our clients as a family by providing proven options, world-class service, and peace of mind. We will do this with honesty, integrity, and loyalty for our company and the communities we serve.'
We internalize this throughout the organizational fabric of our company and especially as we continue to evolve our community-facing programs in Austin, where we individually and collectively strive to achieve these ideals daily," O'Neill said.
Abacus Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electrical expanded into the Austin market in 2021.
"Back then, only two short years ago, we anticipated that it would be a natural fit and it has far exceeded our expectations," said Mike Myers, director of marketing at Abacus Plumbing.
Abacus has ingratiated itself into the Austin community with perennial support for local non-profit organizations including Operation Blue Santa and Texas Humane Heroes, for example, employee volunteer opportunities, donations of goods and services as well as professional and personal development using organizational mentorship and resources.
"We are only as strong as the communities we serve and that we take very seriously," O'Neill said.
