ABB acquires full ownership of CGM
01 September 2015
ABB has acquired the remaining shares of Swedish company, CGM AB to become its sole shareholder. CGM provides control room design and ergonomic solutions for maximum control room operator effectiveness.
ABB says that the acquisition complements its 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.
“By combining ABB's control system with CGM’s control room design and equipment, operators will have the best possible working environment from which to maximise efficiency and productivity,” said Ilpo Ruohonen, managing director of ABB’s Control Technologies business unit “This offering strengthens our control system portfolio and contributes to the evolving internet of things, services and people.”
CGM will become part of ABB’s Control Technologies business unit.
