October 3, 2018 – ABB has announced that the Thomas & Betts Corporation will begin doing business as ABB Installation Products Ltd.
The former Thomas & Betts designs and manufactures products used to manage the connection, distribution and transmission of electrical power in industrial, construction and utility applications globally.
ABB Installation Products will continue to design, manufacture and market the Thomas & Betts electrical product brand names such as Steel City, Iberville, Star Teck, Color-Keyed and Ty-Rap.
“Aligning Thomas & Betts under the ABB brand – while keeping the products and product names that customers know and trust – helps us become a leaner, more market-focused company that delivers higher customer value and shareholder returns,” says Nathalie Pilon, president of ABB Canada.
“A unified ABB retains the best of Thomas & Betts – its authentic and trusted products, valued employees and its commitment to local manufacturing in the communities we proudly serve,” says Alain Quintal, local business unit manager. “Our Canadian customers will get the best of both worlds as ABB and Thomas & Betts share similar DNA in our legacy of innovation, our passion for excellence and our commitment to revolutionizing efficiency through technology.”
A member of the ABB group since 2012, Thomas & Betts is one of 20 ABB-owned brands being migrated to the ABB global brand this year as part of ABB’s strategy.
