According to information on the ABCD web site, New Pig Chair and CEO Ben Staplefield said, “ABCD Corporation was there with us in the beginning and remained beside us as we grew. When we were hit by a major fire a few years ago which threatened to stall operations, Marty Marasco (ABCD president and CEO) was one of the first people to call me and say, ‘Ben, whatever you need, you got it,’ and Marty’s team delivered. With the great response and dedication of our staff, we were up and running almost before the fire was out.”
