ABB has won Manufacturer of the Year at the Motion Control Industry (MCI) awards.

The award recognises ABB’s commitment to developing variable speed drive (VSD) and electric motor technologies and services that save energy, improve productivity and reduce plant downtime across all motor-driven applications in all industries.

Kris England of ABB, who collected the award, said: “ABB is one of only a few manufacturers of both VSDs and motors, which enables us to supply perfectly matched motor and drive packages.

“We also invest heavily in developing next generation motion technology, we offer comprehensive life cycle services to maintain the reliability of our products, and we have application knowledge across multiple industries from food and beverage to automotive.

“I believe this is why we are recognised as market leaders in the supply of motors and drives. The award of Manufacturer of the Year is testament to our success in serving these diverse industries.”

The award win is the second in as many months for ABB, which, in March of this year, won Supplier of the Year at the Pump Industry Awards.
