Becoming a ABCS
I apologize in advance if my post is astoundingly ignorant, as I am sure it is. A friend of mine has a company installing HVAC stuff, and mentioned he always buys Johnson Controls through a ABCS. He thought it was some kind of license to sell wholesale JCI controls, and thought it might be a good business for me to look into. Upon initial research, I can't really find any information on becoming a ABCS, and I'm not even sure what it is, beyond job posting and a few mentions on this forum and independent contractor websites. It seems there are JCI employees who are ABCSs and then independent shops who are licensed to re-sell JCI products. If anyone could clarify what exactly a ABCS is, and if they are indeed independent companies who are licensed, I suppose there are requirements/certifications necessary to becoming one? Nothing was obvious on the JCI webpage about becoming a vendor.
I have experience in wholesaling other products, so just doing a little research on the controls business. Again, I apologize for my ignorant post, and lack of using the correct industry terminology. Just trying to figure a few things out, Thanks for your time.
