LAYTONSVILLE, Md. – Ruppert Landscape partnered with Associated Builders and Contractors of Metro Washington (ABC) to host their summer networking event last week at Ruppert’s corporate headquarters in Laytonsville, MD. More than 450 people attended the event.

The event allows members and prospective members to interact in a relaxed outdoor setting. ABC members are dedicated to free enterprise, open competition and the merit shop philosophy. They are the builders of schools, hospitals, government buildings, recreational facilities, commercial centers, industrial plants, bridges, roads, museums, and churches.

ABC’s Metro Washington Chapter has been holding its Summer Networking Event at Ruppert headquarters for nearly 15 years. “Our involvement with ABC affords us the opportunity to interact with other contractors and customers who are serving our industry,” said Chris Davitt, company president. “We are pleased to be involved with an organization that does such great work on behalf of our industry and keeps us up to date on local, state and national issues impacting the building and construction industries.”
