ABB in brief
Part of the ABB Group, ABB in the UK is headquartered in Warrington, Cheshire and employs 3000 people operating from around 20 locations nationwide.
We supply around £1bn of power and automation solutions, products and services annually in the UK to clients in a wide range of market sectors.
Like our global parent, the company in its current form was created in 1988, but our history goes much further back.
ABB’s success over many years has been driven particularly by a strong focus on research and development, through its network of corporate research centers around the world.
The result has been a long track record of innovation. Many of the technologies that underlie our modern society, from high-voltage DC power transmission to a revolutionary approach to ship propulsion, were developed or commercialized by ABB.
Today, ABB stands as the largest supplier of industrial motors and drives, the largest provider of generators to the wind industry, and the largest supplier of power grids worldwide.
