Celebrating 26 years of Friendship, Teamwork & Community

Korean Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Association of New York (KARA)

Our partnership began twenty-six years ago, and it only grows stronger. In fact, today, ABCO continues to be KARA’s main supplier of HVAC/R equipment, and a primary resource for their technical information.

KARA, for those of you who don’t know them, is a group of Korean-American HVAC/R contractors who work together to share and promote knowledge and industry expertise. They also create a valuable business network for their members.

This year, KARA’s annual celebration was held once again at the stunning Kum Gang San Manor in Flushing, NY. On Friday, January 17th, over 250 members and friends, including 50 ABCO attendees, gathered at the festivities, where they feasted on traditional Korean foods, while also enjoying drinks, singing and dancing. The evening commenced with a welcoming speech by KARA’s president, Ho Youn Ryou. ABCO’s own Hugh Drumm was also one of the evening’s standout speakers. In addition, honors were bestowed, awards presented and prizes from tea to TVs were won in the generous annual raffle.

To all our friends at KARA: thank you for being such special partners, and for creating such a special night. We look forward to a successful 2020 and beyond.
