Largest Construction Trade Association in the Commonwealth


About Us

The Massachusetts Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors is the largest construction trade association in the Commonwealth, representing over 400 local general contractor, subcontractor, supplier and associate companies. These companies employ more than 25,000 workers throughout Massachusetts.

ABC’s Massachusetts Chapter has spent the past 45 years fulfilling its founders’ mission of promoting and advancing the merit construction industry along with the principle of free enterprise. ABC member companies subscribe to the merit construction philosophy that all construction contracts, both public and private, should be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder, regardless of labor affiliation. Through full and open competition, taxpayers and consumers receive the most value for their construction dollar, and all workers, 80 percent of whom are not union members, are provided equal opportunities to take part in the state’s construction work.

ABC is committed to providing its members with quality services and programs that help them operate more efficiently and effectively. ABC’s education programs are known nationwide for training the finest craftspeople in construction. Our members’ safety records stand high above industry averages. Our contractors are known for their flexibility, their teamwork, their competitive prices and the professional excellence demonstrated by the hundreds of successfully completed projects throughout New England and the country.
