Emerson expanding in Shakopee, Chanhassen

12 October 2017

Emerson Automation Solutions has announced it is investing approximately about USD$25 million into facilities in the southwest suburbs of Minneapolis and has hired over 100 workers.

Emerson, which is based in St. Louis, makes temperature gauges, pressure and flow sensors and other automated equipment at plants in Shakopee, Chanhassen and Eden Prairie. Its equipment allows oil companies to remotely monitor oil wells, rigs and refineries and prevent explosions, equipment failures and production slowdowns.

The company will soon add 80 workers in Chanhassen and launch a USD$14 million renovation there that converts 30,000 square feet of offices into factory space.
