Editor's note of ABB automation development history in China: since the first steam boiler was supplied to China in 1907, abb automation business has grown together with abb brand, and has occupied a leading position in the field of domestic automation product/system supply, industry solutions and service provision. This paper briefly reviews the 100 year development of ABB automation in China

in the course of more than 100 years' development, abb has accumulated profound technical strength and rich industry experience with its active practice, continuous innovation and pursuit of high quality in the field of power and automation. It has not only become a global pioneer and giant in this field, but also become one of the most famous power and automation brands in the world. In China, since the first steam boiler was supplied to China in 1907, ABB's automation business has grown together with abb brand, and has taken a leading position in the field of domestic automation product/system supply, industry solutions and service provision. Today, abb automation has three business divisions, namely, automation products, process automation and robotics, and 10 production plants in China. Its products cover dozens of categories, including high and low voltage motors, low voltage electrical appliances, frequency converters, instruments and meters, complete electrical equipment, power electronics, control systems, industrial machinery and people, and has set up a number of business units, including oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical, steel and non-ferrous metals, pulp and paper The company provides professional system solutions and services for mining, cement, automobile, ship, crane, turbocharging and other key industries

the following important events are a brief review of ABB automation's step-by-step development and growth in China for more than a century. It may not be possible to directly see ABB's continuous innovation in promoting and ensuring the healthy and rapid development of the Chinese market, nor its outstanding contributions to improving resource efficiency and improving people's living standards. However, it is obvious that ABB's development is closely synchronized with China's economic and social development, and coincides with the government's goals in improving efficiency, saving energy and protecting the environment, And has always been at the forefront of concrete actions

In 1907, abb supplied the first steam boiler to China.
