Proven. In FY2011 we earned US$38 billion in revenue with
135,000 employees in about 100 countries.
Committed. Publicly owned with HQ in Switzerland, ABB
formed in a 1988 merger of two engineering companies,
ASEA (Swedish) and Brown Boveri (Swiss), that were
founded in 1883 and 1891, respectively.
Innovative. We provide power products, power systems,
automation technologies and services—and now extend
those innovations and exacting standards to the data
