The Swiss company ABB opened its first European customer innovation centre in Sant Quirze del Vallès (Barcelona). The company specializes in digital solutions for all industry sectors and has been present in Catalonia for over 110 years, where its business has been constantly growing.
Marc Gómez, President and CEO of ABB for Spain and Portugal, says that Barcelona competed with many other locations in the world for the new center: “In Barcelona we can see an unbeatable ecosystem that brings together startups, universities and research centers”.
ABB has made multimillion investments in their Barcelona site over the last few years, including a manufacturing centre for robotic cells. The company employs 500 people in Catalonia and their innovation projects are exported to the whole world.
