In May 2020, ABB’s Motion business area announced that it was reviewing how it served customers in Western Canada. Next month, ABB will enhance its operations by consolidating its regional call centers and warehouses in Edmonton. ABB sales and commercial office will remain in the Vancouver area.

In order to meet increasing demand, ABB will go ahead with the consolidation of a new larger logistics operation to house Baldor-Reliance industrial electric motors and Dodge® mechanical power transmission products in Edmonton and transfer distribution and order handling activities by November 2020. The move will provide our customers with a greater variety of inventory and a larger operations support team that will have the means to deliver a wider breadth of services to our customers, in a timely manner with the quality of service they’ve grown accustomed to.

ABB is strongly committed to the British Columbia market and the sales team will remain located in the Greater Vancouver area. Together with its local channel partners and distributors, ABB continues to develop its product offering and solutions to better serve and deliver added value.

Advanced Sensing Solutions for Cost-Effective Machine Building

Omron IOLinkSensing technology has a major presence in manufacturing machinery. It provides the foundation for maintaining consistent quality and detecting any lapses in machine performance. If subtle changes in the physical properties of a machine can cause it to fail, then the sensors responsible for detecting those changes can save manufacturers lengthy downtime and repair costs.

In addition to helping cut maintenance costs, sensors also present an opportunity to make the machines more cost-efficient. Whether through their resistance to harsh chemicals or their ability to reduce the overall machine footprint, the right sensors can make a huge difference.
