Emerson opens Americas headquarters

Emerson Process Management 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.
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 per cent 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.
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.
