Abel Construction is proud to have several fine facilities from which to operate. Our main office located in Mountville, Pennsylvania allows our staff of clerical, accounting, personnel administration, and project management employees to work in a professional working environment insulated from, but in constant communication with our field operations.

Our field operations facility, located just across the Susquehanna River in Wrightsville, houses a self-sufficient maintenance and dispatch operation. We take great pride in our fleet of equipment and this facility plays a major role in our overall maintenance program.
