ABB Opens Advanced Technology Manufacturing Facility In Senatobia, Mississippi

A leading power and automation technology group ABB opened its new advanced technology manufacturing facility in Senatobia, Mississippi. The company plans to create 200 jobs by its third year of operation, reaching 300 jobs by its fifth year, according to Mississippi Development Authority .

The company located in the 85,000-square-foot facility formerly occupied by Twin Creeks Technologies. The facility will manufacture electrical components for the U.S. market. These components include miniature circuit breakers and the Emax2, the world’s first integrated air circuit breaker and power manager. The breakers were previously manufactured overseas. The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance for infrastructure needs and workforce training.

“We will be manufacturing products here specifically for the U.S. market using advanced manufacturing methods,” said ABB Managing Director of the Protection and Connection Business Giampiero Frisio. “This investment was made in the surrounding Memphis area to have our production facility close to our U.S. headquarters. As a pioneering technology leader, we aim to have the broadest portfolio to make doing business easier for our customers.”

Advanced manufacturing is a major economic driver for Mississippi. I thank the ABB team for strengthening the state’s position as a leader in this sector by locating its new advanced technology manufacturing operations in Tate County,” Governor Phil Bryant said. “The skilled workforce found in North Mississippi will ensure the company enjoys many years of success in Senatobia.”

“The opening is a historic economic development milestone for Senatobia and Tate county as this great company takes the next step in bringing hundreds of new career opportunities to the people of North Mississippi,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough, Jr. “We appreciate our teammates at the Tate County Economic Development Foundation for their hard work which, along with the MDA team, was instrumental in bringing ABB to our state.”
