The foundation of the businesses that make up ABARTA, Inc. began in 1933 and grew to become a diversified, privately-held and well-managed organization. ABARTA is one of the top 10 largest independent Coca-Cola bottlers in North America, with franchises centered in Cleveland, OH; Allentown/Bethlehem, PA; and Buffalo, NY. It owned daily newspapers for many years, until divesting its last newspaper, The Press of Atlantic City, in 2013. ABARTA also owns an ethnic frozen food division, named Kahiki, which is based in Columbus, OH.
Energy is the final leg of the company stool and operates under the dual names of ABARTA Oil & Gas Co., Inc. and ABARTA Energy. ABARTA Oil & Gas is focused on the bedrock of our energy division, our shallower, conventional operations based primarily in Kentucky and West Virginia. ABARTA Energy was created more recently to focus on our unconventional shale opportunities.
Today, ABARTA, Inc. is an 84-year old family business led by the third generation of ownership, with a proven record of accomplishment and partnership across a number of industrial segments. We are extremely proud of our reputation for excellence, integrity and long-term stability and growth.
