ABB has acquired the remaining shares of CGM AB to become its sole shareholder. Sweden-based CGM provides modern control room design and ergonomic solutions for maximum control room operator effectiveness.
The acquisition complements ABB’s portfolio with the latest technology for enhancing the control room environment, from optimised design to ergonomic solutions with advanced functionality and improved safety standards. Optimum control room design increases the efficiency of operations that run continuously.
A plant control room and its operators will be increasingly important to boost productivity and increasing safety in the next phase of industrial automation, which will be facilitated by smart plants, intelligent machines and networked processes. Advanced control room design helps ensure that technology and an operator’s efficiency are simultaneously in focus.
CGM employs 54 people and is based in Borås and Ryssby, Sweden. CGM will be part of ABB’s Control Technologies business unit.
