ABB to expand presence in Canada
On September 28, 2022, ABB said that it is spending $13 million to increase production capacity and set up a research and development facility at its global center of excellence for cable tray manufacturing. It is the second multimillion dollar investment in a Canadian site in the last 12 months, and it will support rising global demand in the data center segment.
The Iberville facility has 300 employees who design and make cable trays for the North American market and for customers around the world. Integrating new automated equipment, ABB robotics technology, and an advanced design lab is expected to boost the total production capacity of the 102,000 square-foot site by over 30 percent. Iberville manufactures a range of products, including Microlectric meter sockets and Superstrut metal framing. Joslyn hi-voltage switches are also assembled for electric utility customers.
