MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A technology company whose roots dates all the way back to 1898 had its ribbon cutting ceremony for its new lab in their headquarters in the Mid-South.
Thursday, May 18, 2023, ABB Installation Products, once known as Thomas and Betts, opened its Robert M. Thomas Innovation Center, named after the inventor and co-founder of Thomas and Betts.
The test lab was first in Southaven, Mississippi. Due to demand for creation and new technology for their customers, they moved the lab downstairs in their Ridge Lake Blvd. building in a new renovated area.
“It gives us a chance with our engineers, product managers, and customers, now to have a lab and machine shop in our town to be able to quickly develop, manufacture, and launch meaningful new electrification products that truly do impact our customers,” said Ralph Donati, Executive Vice President and General Manager of ABB.
ABB makes technology we use on a daily basis on earth and in space. One of their cable ties is currently on the Mars rovers.
