Industrial technology provider ABB revealed plans Tuesday to inject $36 million into its advanced manufacturing plant for electrical components in Senatobia, MS. The company will build a 200,000 sq ft structure next to its existing facility to support production of the firm’s ABB Tmax XT circuit breakers. 

“ABB’s decision to expand in Senatobia just more than two years after opening is a shining example of a public/private partnership benefiting the people of our great state,” Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant said in a Mississippi Development Authority press release announcing the project. “Mississippians are hard workers, and I know ABB’s new employees will continue the company’s legacy of manufacturing quality, high-tech electrical components.”

The plant opened in September 2016. ABB’s Senatobia site also produces ABB Emax 2 breakers, TruONE Automatic Transfer Switch assemblies, and other electrical switch products. 

“Since 2010, ABB has invested over $14 billion in the United States, and the U.S. represents the largest market for our products,” the president of Americas at ABB, Greg Scheu, said in a statement. “We will continue to invest in the products we make here, as well as the people who make them, as we expand to meet customer demand.”

About 50 new jobs are expected to be created as a result of the investment. Construction of the new structure is slated to begin this spring. ABB expects the site to be operational by the end of this year.
