ABG Capital has been in business since 1992 in some form or another. Weíve grown from a tiny Mom and Pop company that designed and built databases into a multifaceted technology firm that has been named one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. by Inc. Magazine.
While our name has changed and weíve adapted our products and services, our foundation as a close-knit family business remains. Owned primarily by Brothers Jeff and Jason Tapolci, ABG Capitalís culture still reflects the personality of their late father, Gerard, the companyís founder.
ABG Capital is annually honored as one of the 100 Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania thanks to a focus on people and a culture that allows them to thrive. Our staff, made up of self-motivated individuals with a passion for their work and an uncanny ability to adapt and innovate, has made our business what it is today. Our unique culture polices itself and only allows for team members who fit the ABG Capital mold.
The corporate home of ABG Capital is situated on a hilltop ten minutes from Pittsburgh International Airport and our rejuvenated downtown area. Housed in a modern low-rise building in an upscale suburban office park dotted with fountains and ponds and surrounded by woods, our location is a microcosm of our regionís scenic landscape.
Despite our formal corporate protocol, methodical management discipline and affluent outward appearance, ABG Capital remains at its heart a humble, hard-working second generation family business.
