October 15, 2020 – EnCompass Solutions Group (Port Coquitlam, B.C.) and ABB Inc. have partnered on delivering and servicing low- and medium-voltage system drives for Western Canada.
“It is an honour for ESG to work with, and be a trusted partner of, ABB in the Western Canadian market,” said Tim Wright, ESG president. “First being a Drive Service Partner and now a System and MV Drive Partner of ABB is a major milestone in our effort to provide our customers with flexible and comprehensive power solutions.”
Citing ESG’s local presence in Western Canada and its expertise with ABB VFD products is why, ABB says, they were chosen to represent ABB in the field, “and is an important part of the overall ‘Global quality, local availability’ value proposition”.
Based on this partnership, ABB will contribute its full range of voltage capabilities while ESG leverages its knowledge and experience in serving various industries to provide an array of power solutions and services.
In other ABB-related Western Canada news, the company says it will enhance its operations by consolidating its regional call centres and warehouses in Edmonton, while its sales and commercial office will remain in the Vancouver area.
