American multinational corporation Emerson has inaugurated an expanded facility in Saudi Arabia in order to manufacture its Rosemount pressure and temperature transmitters as well as manifolds.

The new instrumentation facility is designed to offer expanded production capacity of transmitters to support future demand from Emerson’s key customers in the Kingdom.

This move follows Emerson’s recently launched Fluid & Motion Control manufacturing facility in Jubail and adds to its five other manufacturing sites across the Kingdom that manufacture valves, electrical products, pneumatic components, and control systems.

The company said that “the inauguration was attended by Emerson executives, as well as Saudi Aramco and SABIC stakeholders from critical teams such as procurement and local content.”

Emerson has a longstanding collaborative relationship with Saudi Aramco and SABIC to support localization initiatives such as Saudi Vision 2030 and local content programs like In-Kingdom Total Value Add (IKTVA) and Nusaned.

Mr. Liam Hurley, Vice President, and general manager of Emerson’s Western Region in the Middle East and Africa said that, “This expanded facility constitutes another milestone in Emerson’s commitment toward Saudi Vision 2030 and localization programs such as IKTVA and Nusaned. We are bringing our businesses closer to our customers and aligning our capabilities according to the needs of our customers. This facility will improve efficiency not just in production, but also in logistics and delivery costs, providing better value to our customers and partners.”

“Emerson is thrilled with this expansion not only because we can strengthen our manufacturing capabilities to our key customers in the area, but also because of the opportunity to support local communities by providing continuous business opportunities and the development of local talent,” commented Mr. Mounir Taleb, Emerson’s Vice President for measurement solutions in the Middle East and Africa.
