History

Originally, ABCO started out as a cleaning company founded by Edmund Clavette Sr. in the early 1970's. The business was eventually taken over by his children where in 1985, they began to phase out the cleaning service end of the company. Soon after, they ventured into selling cleaning supplies instead. Our first facility was on Arch Street in New Britain, CT. with less than a couple thousand sq/ft of warehouse space in the basement of a 5 story building, a small office rental and retail store, and one small box truck. The company grew to a point where a move was needed, and our current location on West Main St. in New Britain, CT. was founded. The business has remained here for over 20 years and has made growth almost every year.

                                                                       

Below is a photo of when ABCO first moved to West Main Street in New Britain, CT. back in the late 1980's. In the beginning, the building was occupied by ABCO, along with several other businesses renting space. By the early 1990's, ABCO occupied the entire property.
