ABB opens robotics production + development centre in CR Approximately ten months after the start of construction, ABB's robotics centre at the Ostrava Airport Multimodal Park in Mošnov is now operational. The total investment exceeds CZK 300m. The project will initially create approximately 120 skilled jobs. According to ABB, the new facility has strong synergies, particularly with the unit developing and manufacturing modular robotic cells mainly for the European market, and equally with the industrial robot repair centre, which is increasingly taking on competencies within ABB on a global scale. The Ostrava centre is part of ABB's network of global robot repair and overhaul centres, which also includes Auburn Hills (Michigan, USA) and Shanghai (China).
