Our Core Values Shine During Founders’ Celebration
Every June, ABC Supply hosts a Founders’ Celebration, a time for honoring our founders, Ken and Diane Hendricks, and celebrating everything and everyone that makes ABC Supply so special.
Each of our more than 760 locations and our National Support Center celebrate in a different way. Some branches attend a ball game or spend an afternoon go-karting, and others host a cookout for associates and their contractor customers.
At the National Support Center, a picnic is held, where associates, family, and friends eat delicious food, play games, and enjoy an up-close look at the ABC Supply Indy Show Car. The Show Car also makes its way to branch celebrations across the country, giving associates and our customers a chance to get their photos taken from the driver’s seat.
No matter how a location chooses to commemorate the Founders’ Celebration, they have some fun while celebrating ABC Supply’s Core Values. These values began with our founders’ vision for what a great company should be, and they shape who we are at ABC Supply and how we conduct business with our contractor customers.
Our Core Values:
- Respect – We know that people in our industry are often underappreciated, so we strive to give hard-working contractors the respect they deserve.
- Opportunity – We value opportunity because each person’s success enriches us all.
- Work Hard, Have Fun – Together, working hard and having fun opens doors to achievement. The Founders’ Celebration is one way we have fun with our customers and associates.
- Entrepreneurial Spirit – Our associates are encouraged and trusted to think creatively and be innovative in finding solutions for our contractor customers.
- Family – We care for people beyond our business relationships and organizational ties, and strive to maintain an emotional connection with our customers.
- Give Back – Giving back not only expresses gratitude for our blessings, it makes our communities better places to live, work and grow.
- American Pride – We are proud to be an American company and believe that our success can only be possible in the free market of the United States.
We’re happy the Founders’ Celebration gives us the opportunity to share the pride we have in ABC Supply with you, our customer, further strengthening our business relationship. After all, our contractor customers are part of the ABC Supply family.
