Emerson Process Management will expand capabilities for its Rosemount operations with the addition of a 500,000-square-foot building in Shakopee, MN, a suburb of the Twin Cities. The expansion will be accomplished in phases over the next five years and will include a capital investment of up to $70 million and the addition of up to 500 new, highly skilled jobs. The expansion comes on the heels of the company’s recent $40 million investment to upgrade Rosemount’s existing Eden Prairie and Chanhassen, MN facilities.
The new location will become Emerson’s global headquarters for Rosemount measurement technologies. This expansion, along with existing facilities in Eden Prairie and Chanhassen, will support a 10-year growth plan for Rosemount technologies.
Emerson Process Management currently has approximately 2,600 employees in Minnesota, including more than 2,000 employees who work in the Rosemount measurement business in the Eden Prairie/Chanhassen area. Rosemount was founded in Minnesota in 1956 and acquired by Emerson in 1976.
