ABS Celebrates 45 Years in Business

April 4, 2017 Company News

ABS hit the 45 year-old mark today! ABS was originally founded in 1972 by John Dorroh, Hunter’s father, selling calculators and other technologies. Hunter Dorroh, CEO Visionary, took over for his father and has since grown the organization from an 8 person company to a 135 person company with offices and employees in Virginia Beach, VA, Richmond, VA, Roanoke and Huntington, WV.

“It’s amazing to look back over the years to see how far the organization has grown and matured. I couldn’t be happier with the professional development I’ve witnessed in my employees over time.” says Hunter Dorroh, “I’m so excited to see what I know the future holds for ABS. I love that I’m able to wake up every single day and work towards carrying on my father’s legacy. His goal, and naturally mine, has always been to provide exceptional client outcomes and business solutions to make people’s lives easier.  This allows us to continue investing and giving back to our employees, our clients and the communities in which we do business – just like my father has been doing since day one.”

ABS intends on being in business for another 45+ years thanks to our commitment to innovation and relying upon our purposely flexible business structure to allow the organization to quickly and efficiently adjust business offerings based upon shifts in the industry.

Cheers to 45 years!
