Producing a better world

The innovative products we make drive the world’s largest ships, connect remote renewable power sources with consumers and automate complex industrial processes. Our employees focus on using resources effectively in order to help customers use energy efficiently.

Manufacturing at ABB ranges from assembly of customized industrial robots to advanced production of electrical switches and breakers. From generator to user, our products support the efficient use of electric power in industrial, commercial and residential applications.

Why ABB for Manufacturing?

Manufacturing excellence is in our DNA. Our founders wanted to use the latest technology to solve complex challenges and improve the communities they lived in. Innovative problem-solvers through and through, they applied the same drive to manufacturing the products as they did to innovating new solutions to customer needs.

It is that same focus on excellence that keeps the world’s most demanding customers coming back to ABB today. If you share that dedication, you will find a wide range of challenges to test your knowledge and skills.

Our products and processes are based on the latest technologies, so there are often opportunities to pioneer new manufacturing processes. Attention is paid to the smallest details so that our solutions provide high-quality, on-time results for the customer.

Furthermore, we are fully committed to a safer, healthier workplace and a sustainable future for the planet. We place a high value on protecting our employees and the communities we live in, so our first concern is to perform our work in a safe and secure manner.

The exceptional people you work with, the unique projects you tackle and the global scale of our business will give you the skills and experience you need to take your career to the next level.
