ABC Keystone Facility

July 26, 2021

By: Kristi Pronovost, Director of Marketing & Communications

When there are member needs to be met, ABC Keystone steps up. The board of directors and committee members are directly responsible for driving the association forward and having the foresight to anticipate future needs.

The most tangible representation of this commitment to forward-thinking is our training facility. When you drive up to headquarters today, you are greeted by a 31,000 square foot facility that is often filled with the sounds of hands-on apprenticeship training in the shop, career development classes in spaces such as the state-of-the-art multimedia room, and possibly even middle school and high school students attending career exploration events and pre-apprenticeship classes respectively. The Chapter’s initiatives have been well-served by the new facility, and it almost seems this is how it has always been.

But this certainly isn’t the case. Do you remember the days of apprenticeship classes held in the basement? Some of you likely do, and you may have attended those classes yourselves. At times, classes were even held in a portable trailer in the parking lot when needed. Back then, the Chapter’s capacity to accommodate the growing need for training was quickly becoming limited. The stories of creative class locations make for an important part of ABC Keystone’s history, but those solutions were not the future. The future was a $5.2 million expansion that would nearly triple the footprint of the facility allowing for exponential growth of education, training and outreach, a necessary step to meet the workforce development needs of the members. On May 8, 2014, the Chapter broke ground in pursuit of that mission.

Less than a year later, on April 8, 2015, the Chapter officially opened the doors to the brand-new facility that you see today. As we reach the completion of the Capital Campaign pledge receipts, we want to take a moment and thank the 80+ member firms that helped to support this undertaking. We have achieved a 98.6% collection rate* on capital campaign pledges, which is astounding and is a true testament to member commitment and the value placed on education. Your Chapter facility was built by members for members. The association is you, and you are why the Chapter continues to be successful. We extend a sincere thank you for stepping up for the future!
