Emerson is investing R$60 million (approximately US$35 million) to expand its manufacturing plant and operations facility in Sorocaba, in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Located about 95 kilometers west of the city of Sao Paulo, Emerson's campus in Sorocaba will become the company's headquarters in Brazil, and the company plans to consolidate its shared-services functions at the site, including finance, administration, legal, IT, marketing, logistics, and customer service. Emerson is also constructing a new 45,000-square-meter facility for its manufacturing and office needs.

During a memorandum of intent signing event with Sorocaba city officials, Ed Monser, Emerson’s chief operating officer, said that Brazil continues to be a key market for Emerson’s worldwide operations and will grow as the economic recovery takes hold.

"This investment will position all of Emerson’s businesses to better serve our customers in Brazil and reinforce our long-standing commitment to growing our market in this country and throughout Latin America,” Monser said.

In Sorocaba, Emerson Process Management currently manufactures magnetic flow meters, control valves and pressure regulators, pressure transmitters and control systems used to improve operating efficiency within process manufacturing plants, such as refineries. Emerson’s Sorocaba facility also provides asset management services, systems integration, custody transfer and natural gas regulator skids, and flow lab instrument calibration.

The new facility will house multiple Emerson businesses, including Emerson Process Management, Emerson Network Power, Emerson Climate Technologies, Emerson Industrial Automation and Emerson Professional Tools. The number of employees who will work at Emerson’s Sorocaba campus is expected to double once construction is completed. The first phase of construction will begin in the first quarter of 2010 and is expected to be fully completed by the second quarter of 2012.
