As part of a plan to further develop and manufacture robotic solutions in the U.S., Hartfiel’s premier partner ABB Robotics has opened a $20-million expansion of its robotics headquarters and manufacturing.

New ABB Facility

With a 30% increase in facility space, the Auburn Hills, Michigan facility will enhance ABB’s ability to serve as the leading strategic robotics partner for its growing customer base.

Through the new Customer Experience Center, ABB will showcase its leading hardware and software solutions, pioneering the latest digital and AI-powered automation while developing and manufacturing next generation robots.

“Robotics and AI are essential tools for companies in addressing critical labor shortages, localized supply chains and the need to operate more sustainably,” Sami Atiya, president of ABB’s Robotics and Discrete Automation Business Area, said in a release. “The advances in AI-driven software and hardware make our robots more accessible to a wider range of businesses, enabling them to increase resilience and become more competitive. America is now the world’s second largest robotics market, and our production facility will help ABB support existing customers as well as new growth sectors across the U.S. and the Americas region.”
