ABB Expands New Berlin, Wisconsin, Operations

Electrification and automation technology leader ABB will expand its operations in New Berlin, Wisconsin. The approximately $100 project is expected to create 100 jobs over the next three years.

The new campus, featuring 220,000 square feet of manufacturing space and support offices that will be connected to a 315,000-square-foot distribution center, will increase the company’s US production capacity of industrial electric drives and provide additional customer services. Operations are scheduled for late 2024.

“The U.S. is a significant and crucial market for our drives and the services that support them,” said Tuomo Hoysniemi, President of ABB’s U.S. Motion Business Area and Global Drives Products Division. “Therefore, we are committed to local engineering, product design, and manufacturing as well as increased capacity and innovative production and warehousing processes. Our new campus will help us to better serve our local customers by increasing the availability of market-specific solutions and decreasing the time it takes to serve our customers.”

ABB is a technology leader in electrification and automation, enabling a more sustainable and resource-efficient future. The company manufactures a wide range of AC variable frequency drives and controls which reduce energy consumption in buildings and industrial applications in the U.S. market.

“While we make products that help our customers improve their energy efficiency, we are pleased to incorporate features into our campus that will help us reduce our own carbon footprint,” noted Kelly Kling, Site Leader and Vice President of Finance for the U.S. ABB Drives and Motion Services businesses. “Geothermal heat pump and modern HVAC systems will allow us to recycle wasted heat and reduce our energy usage by more than 45%. Improved insulation, rooftop solar panels, and ABB advanced building controls will also ensure that our campus operates efficiently and sustainably over the long-term.”
