Technology multinational ABB will open its new regional business service center in Tallinn’s Ülemiste City business park on Oct. 11.

The shared services center is part of ABB’s new global business service network. Different divisions of the company have been undergoing reconsolidation, as ABB is reducing the number of its global operational groups from eight to three.

This means that its presence in different countries is reduced in favor of regional shared service centers, one of which will be in Tallinn. The new service center is expected to bring several hundred new jobs to the area.

ABB has been active in Estonia for more than 20 years. ABB AS was founded in December 1991 and has since done business in the energetics and automation sectors. Its Estonian headquarters are located just south of Tallinn in the town of Jüri, where the company's ABB One Campus is located (see image). ABB's Estonian unit focuses on the manufacturing and sale of energy technology, including wind and diesel generators, frequency changers, and renewable energy equipment.
