November 7, 2011 – Windsor, Ontario
– Valiant Corporation (a privately-held company incorporated in the Province of Ontario) and ABB Inc. (NYSE: ABB) announced a Strategic Systems Integrator agreement between Valiant and ABB Robotics–North America. This agreement is part of ABB’s Channel Partner Program and will join ABB’s robotic technologies with Valiant’s integration expertise, specifically to serve the heavy industries sector. This is the latest example of a Valiant strategic supplier agreement supporting the company’s global growth and capabilities.

Under the guidance of the Strategic Systems Integrator agreement, Valiant will focus on providing ABB robot based solutions in heavy metal fabrication applications including welding, grinding, de-burring, cutting, drilling, tapping and machine tending specifically in the aerospace, construction, forestry and alternative energy sectors.

"Valiant is exactly the kind of integrator our customers demand, and we are excited to have them join the ABB Channel Partner Program."
