Swiss automation and power technology giant ABB Group is partnering with Chinese telecom behemoth Huawei to develop China’s industrial cloud systems, the two companies announced Wednesday at Huawei’s annual Connect conference in Shanghai.

ABB said it will offer its platform, dubbed ABB Ability, to help industrial customers digitize their manufacturing processes using Huawei’s cloud infrastructure. Launched in 2017, the platform combines industrial machines with industrial internet of things analytics and entered the Chinese market in June that year. ABB’s German rival Kuka, which is owned by Midea Group Co. also has a strong foothold in the Chinese market.

ABB Ability aims to raise production efficiency by offering services including predicting equipment malfunctions before they happen and collecting data during the manufacturing processes, ABB said in a previous statement.

“This collaboration enables us to further grow ABB’s industrial digital solutions in the Chinese market, which represents our second largest customer base,” said Guido Jouret, chief digital officer of ABB.

Earlier this week, ABB broke ground on its new industrial robot factory in Shanghai, with an annual production target of 100,000 units.
