ZURICH (Reuters) – ABB will sell its Dodge power transmission unit to RBC Bearings Inc in a $2.9 billion deal, the Swiss engineering and technology company said on Monday.

The deal is the first major divestment under Chief Executive Bjorn Rosengren. Deals to sell the Power Grids business and the solar inverter business were completed last year, but agreed before the former Sandvik boss took charge in March 2020.
