ABB is planning to build a research and development centre and factory in Napier.

Four years ago, the power and automation technologies firm purchased Vectek Electronics, a power electronics company there, which has expanded and now has about 130 staff.

ABB Napier designs, manufactures and sells a range of highly innovative power protection and power conversion products around the world .

The facility is expected to be completed early next year.
