ABB appoints IPD as preferred distributor

IPD and ABB have announced a strategic partnership that will officially commence on 1 September 2020.

The agreement will see IPD act as its preferred distributor in Australia for low-voltage power distribution and control products to the electrical wholesale market.

IPD has more than 60 years of experience servicing wholesalers, contractors, switchboard manufacturers, OEMs and utility customers in Australia. ABB’s wholesaler customers will benefit from IPD’s large-scale distribution network, which provides greater availability and accessibility to the products customers need, when they need them.

The agreement also specifies that IPD will support ABB with customised distribution boards using ABB components. ABB will continue to support customers and facilitate their needs through IPD to provide the boards to customer requirements.

“ABB is a world-leading manufacturer of products and solutions for the electrical market. We are proud to be partnering with them to further support the wholesale channel in Australia,” said Michael Sainsbury, Chief Executive Officer at IPD.

“This initiative will enable IPD to combine the world-class products and solutions of ABB with IPD’s best-in-class pre- and post-sales support and inventory commitment, to ensure our customers enjoy a fantastic experience when procuring equipment for their needs.”
