ABEC is a community initiative to create business and employment in the Arklow area of County Wicklow.

The people behind the centre behind you. 

A private limited company with charitable status, ABEC directors were all handpicked from prominent local businesses, the Chamber Of Commerce, the Local Enterprise Office and Wicklow County Council. Their mandate was to help us to build a centre of enterprise.

Somewhere that small businesses could begin their journeys without excessive cost.

A home where like-minded business people could help each other through mentoring, support and trade.

That vision is now a reality with ABEC’s 34,000 sq ft. centre on a 2.5 acre site just North of Arklow Town at Kilbride Industrial Estate.

Today ABEC provides affordable offices, office pods and light industrial units to start-up and growing businesses. We also have state-of-the-art training and meeting rooms, valuable business support services and can arrange mentoring and coaching through an extensive network of contacts to help get your business to where you want it to be.

Together with the companies working here, ABEC is proud to provide employment for over 100 people in south Wicklow.
