ABB is a global leader in power and automation technologies which is represented with 140,000 employees in over 100 countries. With 10,800 employees, the German ABB is one of the largest national subsidiaries with a long tradition which dates back to 1900 in Mannheim. Today, ABB in Germany is headquartered in Mannheim and has generated revenues of 3.22 billion euros in 2014.
At one time, ABB made a great contribution to the electrification of Germany. Today, employees are co-designing the energy revolution, from energy-saving power units to offshore wind farms - a broad portfolio of resource conservation and renewable energy solutions is helping to protect the climate and make the energy turnaround not only in Germany possible. With ABB technologies, energy efficiency can be increased by 20 to 30 percent along the entire energy chain.
There are around 4,000 ABB employees from many countries in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. The rich variety of activities in the region range from the training center, via production facilities, to engineering units and the German Corporate Research Center in Ladenburg. ABB technology is not only found in the traditional Heidelberg mountain railway, for example, but also in the new large power plant in Mannheim.
As an international enterprise we see the diversity of our employees as an advantage and as a valuable asset for our corporate culture. In addition to our engagement in many initiatives to ease arriving and realigning for new experts from abroad, ABB has also signed the diversity charter (www.charta-der-vielfalt.de/en).
