ABB is a Swedish company and a world leader in electrical engineering and automation.
ABB's robotics division has an annual turnover of around €70m in Spain, approximately 10% of the Swiss multinational's revenue in our country, which in 2015 consolidated sales of €703m in Spain, with 2,218 employees.
According to Sami Atiya, president of ABB's robotics division, "With this acquisition, we are moving one step closer to the factory of the future. As our customers' automation processes become more advanced and production cycles shorten, the ability to efficiently automate quality inspections becomes a compelling competitive advantage.
ABB has already made eight acquisitions since 2008. The latest acquisitions were made in 2013, when it bought the Californian company Los Gatos Research (LGR), which specialises in analytical solutions for gases and liquids based on a method called OA-ICOS among others.
