Emerson has opened an Engineering and Development Center within the recently expanded Asia Flow Technology Center operated by Emerson Process Management in Nanjing, China. By facilitating local development of innovative products in Asia, Emerson will strengthen the company’s capabilities in supporting customers in this rapidly growing region with process automation technologies and solutions, including alternative fuel capabilities.
“We’re excited to add these new additional capabilities to our already very successful global center of excellence for alternative fuel metering production,” said Phil Fathers, Global Director of Alternative Fuels, Emerson Process Management, Micro Motion. “With additional resources focused on the engineering and development of tailor made products, we see huge opportunity to further delight our customers in the alternative fuel space.”
The new Engineering and Development Center brings Emerson’s total investment in the center in Nanjing to more than USD 35 million and strengthens the company’s overall presence in China and Asia Pacific.
It expands the scope of Emerson’s Nanjing campus which already operates as the Asian regional production, distribution hub, and ISO17025 accredited calibration center for Emerson Process Management’s flow metering and measurement technologies. Engineering and development capabilities being added to the facility will include multi-fluid application testing, environmental testing and analysis, and modeling capabilities for Micro Motion® Coriolis flow and density meters.
“We continuously strive to understand local customer requirements and now have the ability to respond to those needs with a local design team,” said Larry Flatt, Emerson Process Management, vice president, Flow Group. “The new Engineering and Development Center complements our now fully established manufacturing and distribution center and co-locates design engineers with marketing, manufacturing, and supply chain resources.”
The site expansion includes adding design engineering office space and the addition of comprehensive engineering test and design equipment.
