Ruppert Teams Up with ABC Metro to Host Summer Networking Event


Laytonsville, MD – Ruppert Landscape partnered with Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Metro Washington to host their summer networking event on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 at Ruppert’s corporate headquarters in Laytonsville, MD. More than 550 people attended the event.

ABC’s Metro Washington chapter has been holding its Summer Networking Event at Ruppert headquarters for nearly 19 years. 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.

“Our involvement with ABC affords us the opportunity to interact with other contractors and customers who are serving our industry,” said Bob Jones, president of Ruppert’s landscape construction division. “We are pleased to be involved with an organization that does such great work on behalf of our industry and keeps us informed on local, state and national issues impacting the building and construction industries.”

ABC of Metro Washington is the pre-eminent advocate for fair and open competition and the merit shop philosophy, and the premiere construction association in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area. The merit shop philosophy 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.
