ABB donates $180,000 to Queensland flood victims

ABB Australia’s 1,500 employees have raised $180,000 for the Queensland Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal, with the company contributing more than two dollars for every dollar from employees.

“It is important that we unite and provide support for each other in times of crisis, and the immediate response from our employees across the country has been truly inspirational,” said Axel Kuhr, country manager of ABB in Australia.

“We are proud to support the generous spirit of our employees by adding $133,704 to their contributions to bring our total donation to $180,000.

“Our thoughts and hearts go out to the families and local communities affected, particularly those who have lost everything. Our employees will continue to work closely with local businesses to do whatever we can to provide additional assistance for the recovery effort."

ABB’s three facilities located in Brisbane escaped major operational disruption or property damage. The company has had technical product specialists available to assist the local utilities in their challenging task of safely restoring power to residences and businesses in the affected areas.
