About the sponsor

Situated on the Lunenburg harbor, ABCO is a world-class manufacturer with four distinct engineering branches including Food Machinery, Marine, Environmental, and Industrial. Each division designs best-in-class products at the ABCO location.

With 75 years’ experience, locally owned ABCO remains committed in providing long term, exciting employment opportunities. ABCO values a good attitude, loyalty and the motivation to exceed client expectations. We have a brand new 24,000 sq ft facility and we are seeking an NSCC student who shares the goal to learn and grow with ABCO. We hire for a variety of roles and offer a comprehensive benefits package. ABCO will require an on-site commitment (no remote opportunities at this time) and the NSCC student therefore must be willing to commute to the ABCO operations in Lunenburg or reside in the Lunenburg County area.
