Emerson invests $60 million in new flow measurement facility
CLUJ-NAPOCA, Romania -- Emerson Process Management is expanding the company’s existing manufacturing and engineering services campus in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
The expansion includes a new, 18,800-sq-m flow measurement manufacturing building. This $60-million investment will help meet growing demand for the company’s flow measurement products and services in Europe and other regions.
Additionally, in the summer of 2014, Emerson Process Management moves into a separate, newly constructed $16-million facility on the Cluj campus that will be home to the Regional Project Engineering Center and the European System Integration Center for its PlantWeb Solutions Group. This facility will house up to 600 employees who provide engineering and support services for European control systems and automation projects, plus an initial 100 additional personnel to assemble and test control systems for projects throughout Europe.
The new flow technology manufacturing building will offer calibration, services, and customer training facilities for Emerson Process Management’s Micro Motion, Rosemount, and Roxar flow measurement technologies. This facility will provide modern and spacious production capabilities as well as offices for engineering and customer support services, and fulfill market demands for quality and traceable calibration.
In addition, a state-of-the-art customer experience center is planned that will incorporate training and meeting facilities, along with displays of Emerson technologies. The new facility adds to Emerson’s current European network of facilities, which includes an existing flow manufacturing and service center in Ede, the Netherlands.
“These additional capabilities increase our flexibility and ability to manage our European customers’ most challenging needs,” said Sonnenberg.
The company’s Cluj-Napoca campus currently manufactures Fisher pressure regulators, Roxar flow metering and flow assurance products, Rosemount Analytical products, Leroy-Somer power generators, Control Techniques electrical equipment for photovoltaic power plants, RIDGID tools, and Appleton A.T.X. lighting fixtures and junction boxes for hazardous and adverse environments.
