ABB's history in Malaysia began when the first power generator was installed in 1904 by MFO Oerlikon. Today, most of ABB's operations are consolidated under ABB Malaysia Sdn Bhd which was established in 1973, with its head-office based in Subang Jaya, Selangor.
As a leader in the power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customer to improve their performance while lowering their environmental impact, ABB integrates high technology products from Europe and the United States of America, with cost-efficient engineering and manufacturing capability in Malaysia. The transfer of ABB’s leading technology began in 1981 with the substation business and today, it includes industrial process automation, robotics and drives systems.
