“After 35 years of working with some of the best people in the industry, I have decided now is the time to spend more time at home with my family. As a result, I sold the company to Greg Canna, who is now the current owner and President of ABS, effective January 1, 2022. 

I cannot begin to express the gratitude I have for each and every one of you, helping me build this great company over the past 35 years. When I started ABS, it became apparent that my company is only as good as its people. I consider myself very lucky and honored to have had your support. 

I will continue to be involved with ABS, as we work through this transition and I am confident that Greg is the right person to lead ABS and its employees into the future. I will be assuming the role of Chairman of the Board and will still be very present and involved in the business, as we continue to work to expand our footprint in New England.

Thanks again for believing in me all these years and I look forward to what the future holds for ABS and its employees.”

About Greg Canna

Greg Canna began his career with ABS in 1997, becoming the 14th employee. Initially, Greg worked as an applications engineer, which then evolved into roles in project procurement, logistics, and assisting the field technicians, with inspection and validation. Soon after, he rose to a management position, where he began as the engineering manager, and most recently served as the Sales Manager and Vice President.

Since becoming the Sales Manager in 2012, Greg has the ability to anticipate the customers concerns and finds creative ways to solve their energy problems. This commitment has helped shape countless long-term relationships and has resulted in ABS being the preferred energy solutions provider for many buildings in the New England marketplace.

Greg is also committed to those who work tirelessly for our company. He feels extremely privileged for the opportunity to work beside such a knowledgeable, hardworking and talented team.
