The company now has over 70 employees providing emergency troubleshooting, repairs, preventive maintenance, and equipment installations, as well as design build and plan services.

“I have been interested in joining the ABC Board for some time,” admits Angellotti. “Like many though, my job has kept me too busy to take on any new challenges. I never want to commit to something I cannot give my all to and with me stepping down from a couple of local boards I feel the time is right to get more involved.”

She has loved the contacts and knowledge she has gained through her time here at ABC and I am happy to finally be a more active part of this organization.”
Ledbetter credits ABC SEMI Board with serving as role models utilizing share best practices and offer peer mentoring to help cultivate excellence across the trade industry.
