ABS has opened its new global headquarters in City Place Drive, Spring, Texas.
“This is a significant milestone in our 157-year history and reaffirms our commitment to provide industry-leading safety and practical technology solutions for marine and offshore industry challenges,” said ABS Chairman, president and CEO, Christopher J. Wiernicki.
The state-of-the-art global headquarters will be home to the ABS cyber and digital laboratories. These technology acceleration centres bring together employees, clients, industry and academia to develop, test and apply smart technology solutions, which enable informed decisions in the face of fast-moving environmental requirements.
“A five-year journey that started as an idea has now culminated in a building reflecting our leadership position and our continued vision for growth. Our building provides open and inviting spaces where we gather with industry partners to collaborate and engage in advancing innovation to directly support our safety mission,” added Wiernicki.
“It has been an honour working with ABS to bring this transformational building to fruition,” said Dean Patrinely, managing principal of Patrinely Group. “ABS is a first mover and we are proud to have you as a leader in our development. Your presence sets the pace, bringing technology and innovation to CityPlace and further establishing it as a destination for modern, industry-leading companies.”
The new world headquarters is a 10-story, 326,800-sq-ft building housing employees from ABS and its affiliated companies.
