The next Asheville Downtown Association member mixer is taking place at The Foundry Hotel. At Advanced Business Equipment (ABE) we’re especially excited to sponsor this event, in a venue that successfully merges the best of the old and the new.

Formerly part of the Asheville Supply & Foundry Co., which manufactured steel for the Biltmore Estate and other Asheville buildings, the building’s origins can still be seen in the original brick facade and large windows of the The Foundry Hotel architecture.

Says ABE president Kevin Jackson, “A business can’t sustainably grow and be healthier than its surroundings. In sponsoring this event, we celebrate both the achievements of the Asheville Downtown Association in support of a vibrant and healthy downtown, and the tremendous, plurennial achievement of turning this historic area into a viable business."

“Member Mixers are great way to highlight a downtown business and they provide an opportunity to get to know other members,” says Nicole Bentley, Director of Membership and Sponsorship of the Asheville Downtown Association. “We are excited to have three of our members (ABE, The Foundry Hotel and Benne on Eagle) showcased for the February event.”

ABE has been growing steadily in Asheville and the WNC area since our beginnings in 1981, never losing sight of our responsibility as a corporate citizen to help strengthen the communities in which we live and work by sharing our success. We hope to see a strong turnout at this ADA gathering!
