ABW – Appliances A Better Way Since 1968 Our Story

The ABW Appliances story began in 1958 when Mr. Dhyani came to America to find a better way of life for himself and his family. In 1968, after completing his MBA, he began an overseas moving company. The company's services expanded to include appliance sales and exports.

From One Generation to The Next

His son, Bob Dhyani, took the company in a different direction in the late ’80s. Still selling appliances – but with a focus on selling luxury appliances to homebuilders. He converted the existing Silver Spring, MD warehouse into a luxury appliance showroom.

The appliance showroom became an excellent resource for builders, trade partners, and homeowners to experience the latest trends in kitchen design and appliances. This success led to multiple ABW Appliances showrooms emerging throughout the DC and Baltimore metro areas.

ABW Appliances Today

Remembering it was Mr. Dhyani who came here to find a better way of life today's, ABW strives to deliver Appliances A Better Way. Every day we make each step in a client's appliance journey the best. When we were not happy with the appliance service our clients were receiving we launched ABW's service, repairs, and parts department. To help clients understand today's smart appliances we launched use and care classes. To help trade professionals complete CEU credits we launched accredited ventilation classes and more. To cater to the area's leading builders we built a team of industry experts and launched BDG-ABW's Builder Development Group. Our showrooms have become experiential appliance destinations. ABW's Chef Chris is on hand to demonstrate live appliances while dishing up gourmet bites.

Mr. Dhyani’s one-man journey to find a better way of life has evolved into a company comprised of trusted industry experts delivering superior appliance customer services from start to finish every day. ABW – Appliances A Better Way since 1968.
