Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/8/2013, Location: North America

Emerson Process Management, a business of Emerson, has opened its new $30 million Americas headquarters for valve automation technologies and a new, highly automated and sophisticated manufacturing facility in Houston to expand its services for the oil and gas and petrochemical industries. Emerson designs and manufacturers globally recognized valve actuators to help facilities run their processes and operations with optimal, safe and reliable performance.

Over the coming years, Emerson also plans to create 126 new jobs to go along with another $9.5 million capital investment to accommodate anticipated growth.

With the oil and gas industry representing 40 percent of Emerson Process Management’s sales, this new headquarters and manufacturing complex extends Emerson’s presence in Houston, which also includes the new $34 million Emerson Industry Center for Hydrocarbon and Energy that opened in early 2012.

The new valve automation complex encompasses 215,000 square feet of office and manufacturing space. Emerson also has manufacturing facilities in Houston for its Daniel measurement and control products and Rosemount Analytical gas chromatographs. Currently, Emerson employs more than 1,000 people in Greater Houston.

“We are thrilled to expand our footprint in the Houston community,” said David Plum, president of Emerson Process Management’s valve automation business. “Our history in Texas dates back to 1929 and this area remains critical to our growth plans and service level commitments.”

Located in Northwest Houston near the Energy Corridor, the new complex offers close proximity to more than 3,700 area energy companies. The manufacturing facility is the Americas World Area Configuration Center and complements similar full-service facilities in Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East with manufacturing, assembly, integration of control packages, accessory and replacement parts stocking, and testing.

The facility features ‘lean manufacturing’ technology and procedures that provide high-quality products and substantial efficiencies through improved work flow, reduced waste and cost containment.

The new Americas headquarters for valve automation technologies consolidates its sales management, engineering, product development, and administrative functions in support of Emerson Process Management’s growth in North and South America. It also features an Innovation Center that provides leading-edge training with visual technology connecting global experts for presentations and seminars. A demonstration area provides hands-on experiences with Emerson’s range of valve automation products.

The value automation suite of products includes recognized industry leaders BETTIS, EL-O-MATIC, FieldQ, Hytork™, Shafer, Dantorque and EIM.

The new Americas headquarters for valve automation technologies and manufacturing facility are located north of Beltway 8 on Highway 290. The Emerson Industry Center for Hydrocarbon and Energy is located at 6005 Rogerdale Drive off the Sam Houston Tollway (Beltway 8) and also serves as the valve automation global headquarters.

Emerson Process Management, the largest business of Emerson, achieved $7.9 billion in sales in fiscal 2012, an increase of 13 percent from fiscal 2011.
