ABACUS Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electrical recently celebrated its 15-year anniversary. CEO Alan O'Neill hosted long-time industry and media partners that have supported ABACUS' growth through the years.
Founded on April 29, 2003, O'Neill came up with the company name "ABACUS" while looking for a company name that would be alphabetically beneficial for the yellow pages. The tagline, "You Can Count on Us," was a pun off the word abacus, which is an ancient counting device, and is incorporated into the logo.
ABACUS Plumbing started with just two trucks and five employees, three of which are still employed at Abacus, and whom will be honored during the all employee celebration.
The company has been recognized by "Inc. 5000's Fastest-Growing Private Companies" in 2010 and 2011.
In 2012, Abacus Plumbing became Abacus Plumbing & Air Conditioning, revenue jumped from $18.5 million in 2014 to $27 million in 2015, Abacus added residential electrical services. In August of 2017, just before Hurricane Harvey, Abacus moved into its new 60,000 square foot facility near IAH off Beltway 8 and JFK Blvd. Now, in 2018, O'Neill expects revenue to be over $40 million with hundreds of vehicles and close to 200 employees.
