ABB announced today that it is relocating its global Process Automation division headquarters from Norwalk, CT to Houston, TX, effective August 1, 2007. This move brings key division management closer to numerous oil and gas, petrochemical and energy industry customer facilities and headquarters in this region.
"As part of our ongoing commitment to best serve our customers, we are relocating our global Process Automation division headquarters and management team to Houston. This will allow us to be closer to the management and operations of some of ABB's largest customers. This move complements the well-established ABB engineering, service and support teams which already exist in Houston," said Veli-Matti Reinikkala, head of ABB's Process Automation division. "This move also underscores our continued focus on growing our business in the North American market."
