It is said that the best way to predict the future is to create it.
This has certainly been ABB’s approach when it comes to developing new technologies and techniques to solve our customers’ challenges, proven by us recently being recognised as a top 100 Global Innovator for the fifth time in ten years. This spirit of innovation is at the heart of everything ABB does – the ABB Measurement & Analytics business alone files about 80 patents every year and can draw upon the strong foundations of a century of technology development history, including many world-firsts.
Our pressure business is no exception. Our factory in Ossuccio, Italy, where innovative technology reigns supreme, is our global center of excellence for pressure instruments. It is fully responsible for defining strategy for ABB pressure instruments, from innovation, production through to the supply chain.
Many of the best ideas and technologies often emerge from a process of co-creation and collaboration, where companies like ourselves actively involve others – whether suppliers, customers or third parties – in developing new approaches and solutions to problems. This new model of innovation helps us to broaden our perspective and see challenges from multiple viewpoints in a way that would not be possible if we were just working on our own.
