ABB to invest $30m in new plant in Lodz


ABB, the global power and automation technology group, on 11 July announced plans to build a factory of components for power and distribution transformers in Lodz. The value of the project is around $30m (€24.4m).

The 10,000 m2 unit, which will be located next to ABB’s two transformer facilities in Lodz, is scheduled be completed by mid 2013. It will employ 140 people, including machine operators and logistics, purchasing, quality and engineering support personnel. This will bring the total number of ABB employees in Lodz to about 1,000, the group said in a statement. The plant will act as a feeder factory for the Lodz transformer manufacturing units, which make power transformers and oil-filled distribution transformers mainly for the European market.

The project is ABB’s third investment in Poland in recent years, following the construction of factories of electric motors and power electronics in nearby Aleksandrow Lodzki. The Lodz operations also include a centre that delivers prefabricated insulation kits and elements to ABB’s power transformer factories in Europe.
