|ABL Facilities in Tyler, TX
ABL Services was founded in 1979 by George Gregory. Prior to founding ABL Services, Mr. Gregory had an extensive background in surface coal mining where he gained experience in all aspects of mine equipment maintenance and mine electrical service. Seeing opportunities for improvement, especially on dragline bucket rigging components, Mr. Gregory founded ABL Services with the intent to manufacture value-added, quality parts to benefit mining operations. Starting as a small, one-man machine shop, ABL has grown to include two locations which include 60,000 square feet of production plants on 12 acres. ABL’s home office in Tyler, Texas serves customers throughout the world and is staffed by a dedicated team of experienced employees including sales representatives, office personnel, engineers, machinists, welders, fabricators, electrical technicians, truck drivers, and a host of support personnel. ABL remains dedicated to Mr. Gregory’s core principles of manufacturing quality parts that address our customer’s needs and providing excellent customer service based on the highest ethical standards.
