By Catrin Jones05 April 2023
ABB, a global company that focuses on technology innovation, is celebrating the “floor pour” of its newest US flagship campus at 18250 W. Lincoln Avenue, New Berlin, US.
The greenfield location will serve as the US headquarters, manufacturing facility and distribution centre for the Drives and Motion Services businesses. The new facility is anticipated to open in late 2024 and will accommodate 720 ABB employees. Approximately US$100 million is being invested in the project and is expected to create 100 new jobs over the next three years.
“The US is a significant and crucial market for our drives and the services that support them,” said Tuomo Hoysniemi, President of ABB’s US Motion Business Area and Global Drives Products Division.
“We are committed to local engineering, product design, and manufacturing as well as increased capacity and innovative production and warehousing processes. Our new campus will help us better serve our local customers by increasing the availability of market-specific solutions and decreasing the time it takes to serve our customers.”
The business manufactures a wide range of AC variable frequency drives and controls that reduce energy consumption in buildings and industrial applications in the US market.
Currently, the business is divided between two smaller, separate campuses in New Berlin and Wauwatosa. The new campus will include 220,000 square feet of manufacturing space and support offices in addition to a connected 315,000-square-foot distribution centre.
