We’re Committed to Helping You Make Good On What You’re Owed
These five words are more than our corporate tagline; they encapsulate the essence of what we do at ABC-Amega. From empowering credit professionals to make better credit-granting decisions to collecting on the debts our clients are owed around the world, we operate with a strong commitment to service, quality and innovation.
This is ABC-Amega. Who we are and what we do. We look forward to helping you make good on the debts you’re owed without settling for anything less than extraordinary service.
After more than 90 years in the commercial collections industry, we’ve collected a bit more than unpaid debt. We collected expertise and we put it to use for our clients each and every day.
