Emerson announces acquisitions in two sectors
Emerson recently announced two separate corporate transactions.
The St. Louis, Mo., firm has purchased General Electric’s Intelligent Platforms division. With the acquisition, Emerson will combine its distributed-control systems with Intelligent Platforms’ PLC technology.
Emerson also said it has purchased HTE Engineering Services Ltd., an Ireland-based firm that develops and manufactures special-purpose equipment for the automotive, electronics and medical device industries. HTE’s heat-staking technologies will be added to Emerson’s Branson plastics-joining portfolio. Emerson did not disclose the terms of either deal.
