Laytonsville, Md. - Ruppert Landscape partnered with Associated Builders and Contractors of Metro Washington (ABC) to host their summer networking event on Wednesday, July 11, 2012, at Ruppert’s corporate headquarters in Laytonsville, MD. More than 500 people attended the event, including Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett and County Councilmembers George Leventhal and Nancy Floreen.

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.”

ABC of Metro Washington represents the interests of approximately 500 contractors, specialty contractors, and suppliers throughout the Washington metropolitan area who support and believe in the principles of merit shop and open competition. Merit Shop is a way of doing business in which companies reward employees based on performance while encouraging them to reach their highest level of achievement, and in which contracts are awarded based on safety, quality and value—regardless of labor affiliation.
