ABB extends service network in China

Nov 30 2018

ABB Turbocharging has established a branch office of ABB Jiangjin Turbo Systems in Zhoushan.

Thanks to its superior geographical position and the booming development of China's marine industry and economy, Zhoushan is now responsible for over 35% of the total shiprepair work for the country, making it the premier shiprepair centre in China.


With the rapid growth in the demand for efficient and convenient services from customers, ABB saw an opportunity and reached a co-operation agreement with Zhoushan Xinya Shipyard, an important hub for ABB, the company explained.


This branch will offer customers the benefit of ABB’s original spare parts and services, and more convenient access to maintenance and repair for all ABB turbochargers, regardless of the model types and use. With the new location, the time previously required for repairs and maintenance will now be significantly reduced.


“ABB Jiangjin Turbocharging System Zhoushan Branch is the first legal entity established by ABB in Zhoushan,” said Jiang Haibo, ABB China’s head of industrial automation division. “It will be a valuable addition to our sales and service network in Zhoushan and the entire south-eastern coastal Yangtze River Delta region.


“It will help ABB remain closer to the needs of the market and serve our customers faster and better, as well as in the delivery of ABB’s mission ‘In China, for China, and for the world’.


"We are very optimistic about the future of Zhoushan. By leveraging ABB’s technical advantages in Internet of Things and digitalisation, through active participation in the construction of key projects and the economic development of Zhoushan, we are confident to achieve a ‘win-win’ collaboration,” added Haibo.


As well as offering geographical benefits to customers, the branch will also provide greater access to customers to fully utilise ABB’s digital offerings through its support network.


“ABB Turbocharging is committed to providing customers with high quality and accessible services and products, which encompasses the delivery of innovative and digital solutions. These solutions, be it products or services, enhance the equipment performance, increase operational flexibility, and reduce operating costs (OPEX),” said Allan-QingZhou Wang, ABB Jiangjin Turbo Systems head.


ABB Jiangjin Turbo Systems sales and service network will serve both domestic and international customer, including branches/subsidiaries in major coastal cities, such as Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Tianjin, Dalian, Qingdao, Zhoushan, as well as service points in Shekou and Fuzhou in co-operation with local shipyards, in a bid to optimise resource utilisation and service footprint, expand network coverage and improve service responsiveness.
