ABB Breaks Ground New U.S. Calibration Hall

ABB has begun the construction of a new 12,000-square-foot calibration hall in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Accordingly, the planned new facility is adjacent to its existing 200,000-square-foot manufacturing facility.

The investment will strengthen the company’s calibration capabilities and provide customers with high levels of quality and accuracy in ABB’s full range of flowmeters. Moreover, it will also further increase the company’s “Made in America” offering.

Solidifies U.S. Manufacturing Footprint

High-accuracy flowmeter calibration enhances measurement performance. Thus, helping industrial customers to become more energy- and resource-efficient. US plant operators across industries can accurately measure in and outflow as well as raw and produced materials. For that reason, enabling them to control their processes in a more precise and efficient way.

“With today’s groundbreaking we are on a path to improve our ability to meet the growing demand for instrumentation in the North American market,” said Jacques Mulbert, President, ABB Measurement & Analytics. “With this important investment, we will increase and strengthen our US manufacturing footprint.”

The new calibration hall will begin operations in early 2025. Moreover, the site will benefit from the strong track record of innovation, commitment to quality, efficiency, and proximity to customers of ABB’s Bartlesville factory.

The Bartlesville factory is one of ABB’s flagship North American locations. Moreover, ABB recently announced that it is consolidating North American instrumentation manufacturing under one roof in Bartlesville.

The US remains ABB’s largest market by revenue, and the current investment adds to over U.S.$14 billion ABB has invested in the US since 2010.
