The company in its current form was created in 1988, and quickly established a presence in the US through acquisitions as well as organic growth. Westinghouse, Combustion Engineering, Bailey Controls and many other highly respected firms joined the ABB family. In the last few years, ABB has dramatically expanded its US operations with the acquisitions of Baldor (motors, mechanical power transmission), Thomas & Betts (low-voltage products), Ventyx (enterprise software) and PowerOne (solar inverters).


ABB’s success has been driven particularly by a strong focus on research and development. One of its seven global R&D centers is located on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh along with its Smart Grid Center of Excellence and the regional headquarters for ABB’s power-related businesses.


This focus on technology development has produced numerous breakthroughs and industry firsts, many in the United States, from the world’s largest drive at NASA’s National Transonic Facility Wind Tunnel in Virginia to the world’s largest battery energy storage system in Fairbanks, Alaska. ABB has even supplied robots featured in the Terminator and Iron Man films.


Today, ABB stands as a global leader in power and automation, and the US represents its largest growth market. Cary, NC is home to the region HQ.

Demanding work but good people
Written by HSEQ Manager New Zealand ABB Service (Former Employee) from Christchurch on 2 October 2013
Implementing and reporting on HSEQ processes and answering questions from all variety of staff, management allowed me to get on and do my job without much interference. I enjoyed many of the people who worked there. The hardest part was fighting fires all the time and the most enjoyable was dealing with the people.
