The company history of ABEL Gruppe
ABEL Gruppe: in more than 100 years from electrical engineering to future-oriented technologies
How do you turn a one-man electrical company at the heart of Upper Bavaria into a Germany-wide technology company with over 700 internal and external staff members? In hindsight it was a consistent path the family company took since its founding year 1912. Much may have changed in the meantime, but the company's values have remained the same - as well as its passion and pioneer spirit. Company founder Dominikus Abel and his son, Hermann Abel I., brought electricity to the region and supplied customers with electricity and electrical appliances. The development into a transregional company came when Hermann Abel II. took over the company in 1968. Together with his brother Walter he shifted the company's focus to radio technology and soon turned ABEL into the market leader in Southeast Bavaria. Since 1993, ABEL has been concentrating on services for radio access networks and electrical engineering, acquiring competence in automation technology for commercial and industrial applications, building services engineering, as well as power engineering and energy supplies. In 2002 ABEL expanded its portfolio to include photovoltaics and biogas plants.
