ABB CanadaABB has announced an investment of US $13 million in its Installation Products Division Iberville manufacturing facility in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., to increase production capacity and establish a research & development facility at its global center of excellence for cable tray manufacturing. This will support rising global demand, especially in the data center segment, and is ABB’s second multimillion-dollar investment in a Canadian site in the last 12 months.

The Iberville facility employs 300 people, including production, engineering and quality specialists who design and manufacture cable trays for the North American market and international customers. The integration of new automated equipment, ABB robotics technology and an advanced design lab, along with the more than 32,500-square-feet of building improvements, is expected to boost total production capacity of the 102,000-square-foot site by more than 30 per cent. Among the products manufactured in Iberville are Microlectric meter sockets, Superstrut metal framing, and Joslyn Hi-Voltage switches assembled for electric utility customers.

“ABB’s latest investment is part of a five-year strategy to advance our digital capabilities and foster continued innovation,” said Matthias Heilmann, president of ABB Electrification’s Installation Products division. “Expanding production, integrating new technology, and bringing together our product design and engineering teams further strengthens our ability to deliver smart, safe and sustainable solutions to Canadian and global customers.”
