About Tom Stanek

In addition to running Abby Industrial, Tom Stanek is the founder and President of K2 Castings, a multi-million dollar industrial parts supplier. Tom also works with recycling facility owners to define needs and execute plans for capital improvements, expansions or new facilities.

He founded Abby Industrial, Inc. in order to better describe what his team does best: serve the needs of Owners through construction CapEx projects. Heavy industrial facilities have unique needs that demand proper attention, whether the focus is on machinery, buildings, or environmental.

Owners need someone who can sit on their side of the table while fostering collaboration with design professionals and capable contractors. The right Owner’s representative translates those needs both ways.

Tom is a U.S. Coast Guard service-disabled veteran, where he served from 1985 until 1992. He holds a BS (with Honors) in Marine Engineering from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. Tom’s work in shipbuilding and repair helped him get started in the heavy metal industrial workspace. In addition, he continually advances his knowledge, including advanced business management training at Ohio State University’s Fisher School of Business. Tom holds safety supervisory certifications in OSHA general industry, 1926 Construction and Demolition, and MSHA Mine Safety and Health as well as radiation safety.

Tom also holds a Massachusetts Construction Supervisors License.
