Cummins Appliance has merged with ABW Appliances to become ABW's sixth location and first Baltimore store. Founded in 1928, three generations of Cummins provided quality appliances to neighboring families and businesses. Building on nearly a century of service to the community, Cummins begins a new chapter as ABW Appliances Pikesville.

"We're doing this to improve service, improve turnaround time, and increase product availability to better serve our customers," says Howard Cummins. "But," he adds, "I won't miss the early mornings and late nights."

Howard and his furry assistant, Teddy Bear, were well-loved personalities within the Baltimore community for decades. After a year of working with ABW to ensure a smooth transition, Howard finally retired in April 2022.

Like Cummins Appliance, ABW Appliances is locally owned and founded by family. ABW's mission is to provide products that power home, a better way. ABW is the trusted appliance source for builders, designers, and homeowners who want top-quality appliances and premium service. Says Ryan Simon, CEO, "We are thrilled to welcome Cummins to the ABW family. I am working closely with Howard to offer excellent products and service that Baltimore-area clients expect."

Founded in 1968, as American International Exports, the company began selling luxury appliances to builders in the early 1990's. Originally known as ABW Appliance Builders Wholesalers, the company is now known as ABW Appliances A Better Way. ABW Appliances has six locations across the DC, Northern Virginia, and Baltimore metro areas, including experiential showrooms, stores, and a clearance outlet. Showrooms have live demonstration kitchens, coffee service, and expert sales consultants ready to help. ABW Appliances encourages giving through company-sponsored charity events. Find ABW Appliances in Arlington and Ashburn, Virginia; as well as North Bethesda, Pikesville, Silver Spring and Jessup, Maryland.
