Emerson Process Management officially opened a new engineering and service centre in Manila as part of an ongoing commitment to provide regional expertise, support, training and services for its customers. The company is making a USD 20M investment in the Philippines to support sales of its automation technologies and engineering services in Asia Pacific and around the world.
“This new facility represents an investment in our growth strategy in Asia and reconfirms our commitment to the Philippines which has a large pool of skilled engineers”, said Ed Monser, president and COO of Emerson. “The opening of the Philippines facility adds to our regional engineering and project execution hubs, which already includes facilities in India, Costa Rica, Romania, and the United States, to serve our automation customers around the world.”
“In order to provide the engineering resources our customers need our employee headcount has doubled over the past four years and we needed more space to expand”, said Terry Krouth, vice president and general manager of Emerson Process Management’s Manila team. “The work we do in Manila is key to helping our customers automate their production, processing and distribution facilities and operate and manage for safety, productivity and profitability.”
