Emerson signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Saudi Aramco during the recently held Saudi-U.S. CEO Forum in Riyadh. Emerson was one of several companies chosen by Saudi Aramco to promote bilateral trade and investment between Saudi Arabia and the U.S.
As part of the agreement, Emerson will continue investing in the Kingdom by training Saudi Aramco engineers and technicians through Emerson’s educational facility and creating more jobs for Saudi locals. Emerson will also provide Saudi Aramco with its Operational Certainty offerings which are designed to increase the reliability of existing facilities and get more value out of existing assets.
Emerson’s continued support for Saudi Aramco is reflected in the development of its own facility in Dhahran Techno Valley that is currently under construction. The facility is scheduled for completion in January 2018.
