As the official Partner Country of HANNOVER MESSE 2019, Sweden took center stage this year at the leading world trade fair for industry. So, in honor of its Swedish heritage, ABB AG - a firm fixture at the fair since the 1970s - was proud to present its smart industrial solutions not just at its own stand, as usual, but also at the Sweden Co-Lab Pavilion, where the exhibitors demonstrated their commitment to co-creation and innovation. One example of ABB AG's innovative prowess on show was the first emission-free shuttle service. During the trade fair, visitors had the opportunity to go on smooth, noiseless rides across the vast expanse of the exhibition grounds using this eco-friendly transportation service, which ABB ran in conjunction with fellow Swedes from Volvo.
ABB also offered an insight into its pioneering partnerships in Hannover and exhibited technologies that are at the heart of its transformation into a focused leading technology company for the digital industry. ABB AG has simplified its structure and is now divided into four divisions, delivering innovative solutions in electrification, industrial automation, drive technology and robotics & production automation. Each of these divisions, which play a leading role on their respective markets, aims to achieve maximum proximity and speed so it can act as the sole interface for customers.
