Cable & Wireless, one of the world’s leading communication companies, selected ABB to supply utility communications solutions to improve the United Kingdom power grid. ABB’s management system controls the interconnected substations throughout the UK and enable data from different applications to be combined into a converged network.

ABB maintains a policy to strengthen its relations and effectiveness in the countries in which it operates. This value system led ABB to appoint three new country managers to head its operations in Spain, Russia, and Poland. These suitable managers are citizens of these countries, and intend to provide the best ABB service to their national customers.

ABB’s operations are organized into five divisions that span the globe.  These divisions are comprised of business units focused on particular industries and product categories specific to the area.  The divisions are:  power products, power systems, discrete automation and motion, low voltage products, and process automation.
