May 24, 2017 – Today, ABB officially inaugurated its new $90-million Canadian HQ and Customer Innovation Centre, which will house 700 employees who were previously spread across six locations in the Greater Montreal Area, plus R&D, manufacturing, assembly and testing for ABB’s “energy value chain”.
“The new campus allows greater collaboration with our business partners and with the academic and research sectors,” said Nathalie Pilon, president of ABB Canada, adding the HQ “is also home to our new ABB North American Centre of Excellence in E-Mobility”, which was created to share expertise with Canadian customers and stakeholders in the field of electric-powered transportation technologies.
“The new headquarters reaffirms ABB’s commitment to Canada as a growth market and an important customer base,” said ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer.
The campus is expected to be LEED-certified Silver.
