ABB to open new logistics facility in Edmonton


ABB’s Motion business area is making some changes in Western Canada next month.

In response to growing consumer demand, ABB will consolidate its regional call centres and warehouses in Edmonton into a new, larger logistics operation to house Baldor-Reliance industrial electric motors and Dodge mechanical power transmission products.

Distribution and order handling activities will be transferred in November.

“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,” the company says in a statement.
