ABB is investing CA$16 million in its Installation Products Division manufacturing facility in Pointe-Claire, Canada. This enables expanded production capacity to meet the growing needs of customers from coast to coast.

“ABB’s investment is part of a five-year strategy to integrate new digital processes and automation across our operations,” says Matthias Heilmann, President of ABB Installation Products Division. “With our customer-first approach, this enables us to further innovate our products and manufacturing capabilities to meet the specific needs of the Canadian market.”

The expansion will create over 40 full-time jobs in the upgraded 65,000-square-foot facility to deliver the legacy Canadian brands produced by ABB’s Pointe-Claire facility. These include Marrette® wire connectors, the NuTek® series of non-metallic thermoplastic boxes, and Snap-it® plastic fittings. The site also produces Carlon® PVC products and other components used in a range of Canadian product lines.
