As a next step to the previously announced $16 million investment, ABB in Canada breaks ground for the expansion of its Installation Products plant in Pointe-Claire, Quebec. The facility will expand by 30,000 square feet to 65,000 square feet and once completed in 2024 will create 40+ new jobs. 

Increased production capacity will better meet Canada’s growing demand for safe, smart and sustainable electrification solutions.
