Emerson opens 6,000m² valve automation facility in Hungary

Emerson Process Management, a supplier of process automation services and technologies, has expanded its valve automation manufacturing capability with the opening of a new facility in Székesfehérvár, Hungary.

The plant — which was officially opened in September 2012 — will reportedly help address customers’ key requirements of fast delivery and a high level of service and support. Emerson expects that the increased production capacity will help reduce delivery times for customers in Europe by as much as 25 per cent.

The 6,000m² site is dedicated to the manufacture of Emerson’s valve automation products for distribution in Europe. The plant will specifically produce the Bettis range of medium- and large-size scotch yoke actuators, including both double-acting and spring-return models.
