Cable Products Maker to Double Albuquerque Plant Size
An ABB supplier will be spending $40 million to double its Albuquerque factory. The site will make cable products used by electric utility providers in grid hardening and resiliency initiatives. The new plant will be right next to the current plant. That adjacent plant already employs nearly 450 production, engineering and quality specialists.
Albuquerque Business First reports the zoning request calls for an approximately 93,000-square-foot expansion of an existing 92,658-square-foot warehouse at 6625 Bluewater Road NW. That expansion would include an additional manufacturing area and a customer experience center, among other facilities. The company is looking at the first quarter of 2024 to begin work on the project.
ABB, a global technology firm, first announced plans for the Albuquerque expansion in late March. The expansion could create 55 jobs.
