Office Of The Secretary Of State
March 22, 2011
As Secretary of State, it is with great pleasure that I offer my congratulations on your 75th year in business.
In today's competitive business environment, a family business cannot grow and prosper without doing something right. The fact that over 90% of Abt's business comes from repeat or referred customers is proof that you have done many things right. Your competitive pricing and your desire to satisfy customers has grown your company to over 1200 employees and made you the premier place to shop for those in the Midwest.
As a family owned business in your second and third generations, your ability to expand in even the toughest economic times in an overwhelming testament to your goal of "complete customer satisfaction." On behalf of the people of Illinois, I offer my sincerest congratulations on reaching this impressive milestone.
Best Wishes for a wonderful 75th anniversary and for continued success in the many years to come.
Secretary of State
