ABB Automation in South Africa to distribute ABB analysers in Africa

April 2000 News

A full range of ABB process analysers will now be available direct from ABB Automation's analytical division and will be supported by a well-equipped service and repair centre based in Midrand, Johannesburg.

ABB Automation in South Africa, part of the globalised technology group, ABB, reached an agreement with Setpoint Process Analytics, a member of the Setpoint Technology Group, who successfully distributed the ABB Process Analytics products in South Africa for a number of years.

Last year the analytical division of Hartmann & Braun was integrated into ABB Automation in South Africa with the acquisition of Elsag Bailey Process Automation. This has paved the way for the incorporation of ABB Process Analytics direct into ABB Automation's analytical division in South Africa. The division will now offer a broader range of products and its customers will have direct access to the manufacturer, says Urs Leuenberger, Managing Director, ABB Automation.

Cooperation between the two companies will continue in the future recognising ABB's technology leadership and the prominent market position that Setpoint Process Analytics holds in the industry in Southern Africa as a systems integrator.

"Setpoint Process Analytics has established a prominent installed base, providing a service which includes systems integration; sampling analysis and technical support of products. We will continue to offer a high level of customer support," says Leuenberger.

ABB in Southern Africa employs 3500 people in most SADC countries. The group is involved in large electrical engineering, industrial and technology projects throughout the region.

ABB is a globalised technology and engineering company, serving customers in power transmission and distribution; automation; oil, gas and petrochemicals; building technologies and service; and in financial services. Power generation customers are served by the joint company ABB ALSTOM Power. The ABB Group employs about 165 000 people in more than 100 countries.
