ABB Robotics Opens U.S. Packaging and Logistics Headquarters
ABB has officially opened its new Robotics Packaging and Logistics Headquarters, located north of Atlanta in Alpharetta, Georgia. The new facility will serve as ABB‘s dedicated center for robotic automation solutions in the logistics and packaging industries.
With some of the world’s largest packaging and logistics companies based in and around Atlanta, the facility will serve as a hub for collaboration between ABB and its customers and integration partners. Together, this ecosystem will design and develop the next generation of AI-enabled robots to transform the packaging and logistics industry and help US companies meet new demand, build resilience and remain competitive. Training will also be available for ABB employees, customers, and integrators to help them develop skills needed to program, operate and maintain robots in logistics and packaging applications.
As part of a wider $22 million investment by ABB Robotics in the U.S., that will create more than 70 jobs, this is the latest specialist robotics center, dedicated to developing new solutions, products and technologies. It will operate alongside the company’s Lifesciences and Healthcare Lab in Houston, Texas, ABB Robotics’ manufacturing facility in Auburns Hills Michigan and the ABB Robotics Research and Development lab in San Jose, California. The investment furthers ABB’s commitment to addressing the increasing demand for automation in the U.S. as more companies seek to re-shore their manufacturing and distribution operations.
ABB’s new Packaging & Logistics Headquarters in Atlanta follows the company’s investment in the expansion of its Auburn Hills manufacturing facility in Michigan, strengthening ABB’s presence in one of its largest and most important markets. The investments made by ABB Robotics is part of approximately $170 million that ABB is investing across its businesses to accelerate its growth strategy in the United States.
