Emerson Expands Engineering Center, Services in Manila

Emerson Process Management officially opened a new engineering and service center in Manila this summer. The company is making a $20 million investment in the Philippines to support sales of its automation technologies and engineering services in Asia Pacific and around the world. The 10,000-square-meter building is located in Pasig City in Metro Manila.

Emerson employs approximately 700 people at the facility and expects the headcount to grow to nearly 1,000 by 2017 based on current plans. 

Pentair Engineers Its Largest Wedge Gate Valves

Pentair Valves & Controls has supplied its largest ever bolted bonnet flanged wedge gate valves for an integrated petrochemical plant located in the Middle East. Engineered and manufactured under the Fasani brand, the specialist carbon steel-bodied valves measure 78 and 84 inches in diameter with ANSI class 150-pressure rating.

Designed for wet flare line applications within the plant, the Pentair team worked closely with the project engineering and procurement contractor. Pentair’s production facility in Rescaldina, Italy, features one of the largest test benches in Europe.

Emerson Process Management Reports Third Quarter 2014 Results

Emerson Process Management net sales grew 6%, supported by stable and sustained levels of investment in the global energy and chemical industries. Underlying sales increased 2% in the third quarter, reflecting mixed market conditions across regions and continued cautious project execution by customers. Acquisitions added 4%. North America grew 7%, as unconventional oil and gas projects remained robust, and Europe increased 5%, led by strong growth in developing countries. Asia decreased 2%, as softness and difficult comparisons in Australia offset continued strength in China. Segment margin remained solid at 20.4%, declining from the prior year as strategic investments continued to support future profitable growth. Solid near-term growth is expected, supported by strengthening in North America, anticipated recovery in Asia, and record backlog. 

Metso Supplying PETRONAS Modernization Project in Malaysia

Metso has been selected to supply flow control technology to the PETRONAS Gas Berhad's gas processing plant modernization project in Kerteh, Terengganu, Malaysia.

The order was placed by the Toyo Japan and Toyo Malaysia consortium. Toyo will provide engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning through a turnkey contract to expand the plant life for another 20 years.

The deliveries to the Dew Point Control Unit 2 have been completed and successfully installed. The deliveries to Gas Processing Plant 4 are ongoing. These orders have been included in Metso's third quarter 2013 and second quarter 2014 orders received. 

Teadit North America Moves into New Texas Facilities

Teadit North America has moved into new headquarters in Pasadena, TX. Located at 10545 Red Bluff in the Bayport South Business Park, the new facilities feature a 92,000 sq. ft. production and manufacturing warehouse with a 28-foot clear height, and a 20,000 sq. ft. office with second-story mezzanine. This new building is nearly 70% larger than Teadit’s last Pasadena location.

"We set up the new plant in a manner that materials come in receiving and flow straight through to shipping," Teadit operations director Chris Channell told The Houston Chronicle. "It really improved our workflow."
