History of ABC

In 1958 Chicago police officer, James Faust, Sr., saw a need for automotive security systems after becoming aware of the increasing number of vehicle thefts and break-ins. He soon started moonlighting installing these systems. Soon after, the business grew so large that he quit his job on the Chicago police force and officially opened a business known as ABC Auto Alarms.

ABC is widely known as Chicago’s leader in automotive security and has completed over 100,000 installations. The business is now run by the founder's sons Jim and John Faust and has been diversified to include custom audio and video systems, remote starting systems, navigation and car/truck accessories. ABC has been known for quality products, installation and service for over 56 years. ABC is a name you can trust for all your automotive electronics needs!
