ABB recently relocated its Americas headquarters in Cary, North Carolina. The company’s corporate office for the Americas region has been headquartered in Cary since 2009, but the new move relocates the office to 305 Gregson Drive. ABB is the building’s sole tenant.
“With this move, we will continue to call Cary and the Research Triangle region our home. It is important to minimize the impact on our local employees while delivering a modern concept facility in line with ABB’s culture and needs as a technology leader,” said Greg Scheu, President of ABB Americas Region. “North Carolina is an energy and technology hub and will help ABB lead the digitalization of America’s power grid and manufacturing resurgence.”
The new building highlights ABB’s new branding, provides more modern facilities, including open spaces for collaboration and teamwork, new technology and networking tools, and updated interiors with more natural light. The facility also features a customer experience center, an ergonomic office environment, where everyone’s desk converts to a standing position at the touch of a button, and other amenities such as a dedicated, larger eating area, an outdoor patio, and showers.
ABB has a significant and growing presence in the Research Triangle market and across the state. ABB employs about 900 people in the Triangle and nearly 2000 across the state including ABB’s Power Grids division and its Corporate Research Center, both located at North Carolina State University’s Centennial Campus.
