Our heritage

Our heritage has formed our spirit – today and in the future

Our heritage stems from our long and rich heritage of innovation - from our roots in ABB – and forerunners, Asea and BBC. Our customers value the deep insight and expertise we bring to their projects - much of which has been layered up over time.

Whilst are proud of our rich heritage and past achievements – be it ‘worlds-firsts’, ‘longest’, ‘largest’, ‘fastest, ‘highest-voltage’ etc. - the most important heritage is our company spirit, which lives on strong today. It's our permanent hunger for the next and the constant anticipation of future customer needs that continues to drive, inspire and excite us.
