  • Our experience with ABA has been very positive and knowledgeable. From the initial call we were able to relate our needs and special production application to ABA’s representatives, with full understanding and feedback of our project. During the setup the equipment was easy to install with sufficient information to understand the procedures, maintenance schedules and troubleshooting guide.

  • "We purchased a lid dropper for our operation a few years back.  Although we use the lid dropper to manufacture oil filters and not paint cans the system works very well.  Little or no maintenance is required and any problems that did arise during the installation was quickly addressed by the caring folks at Anthony Barber and Associates.  We ran over 40 million parts on this machine since it was installed in March of 2014.  We were so happy with this unit that we purchased a second unit for another line.  The second unit was just installed a few weeks ago and I look forward to years of service from both machines."
