Baldor Electric Company is now ABB
Thursday, 01 March, 2018
Beginning 1 March 2018, Baldor Electric Company, a member of the ABB group for more than seven years, will be known as ABB.
“This represents yet another great step in building a market-focused, lean organisation and unifying the ABB brand across the globe,” said Sami Atiya, President of ABB’s Robotics and Motion division, which includes the organisation currently known as Baldor. “With aligning all of our activities under the ABB brand, we are delivering on our Next Level Strategy to unlock value by streamlining and strengthening our portfolio.”
As ABB, the organisation will continue to manufacture, design and market the product brands of Baldor-Reliance motors and Dodge mechanical power transmission products from 15 US manufacturing locations. The organisation will continue to support ABB’s entire US motors and generators business unit, including ABB branded IEC motors, large AC motors, generators and related services from the motors, generators and mechanical business headquarters in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
“ABB has invested over $13 billion in the US over the past 10 years; this is our largest market,” said Greg Scheu, President of the Americas for ABB. “The company will continue to invest in the products it makes here, as well as the people responsible for their manufacture. Our US-based motor and mechanical portfolio will be included within our broader portfolio of ABB Ability digital solutions.”
Starting 1 March, the ABB brand will be applied to all of the Baldor Electric Company’s manufacturing, sales and support facilities, box designs and marketing collateral, invoices and purchase orders.
