New Emerson plant will shorten lead times

Emerson Process Management’s newest production facility in Hungary was officially opened on 20th September 2012.

By David Sear & Mark Casey
Located in Székesfehérvár, about an hour’s drive from the capital Budapest, the new plant is geared up for the assembly of Bettis G-Series actuators, especially in larger sizes.
Invited to the opening ceremony, Valve World used the occasion to quiz many of Emerson’s staff about the role of the new factory, the types of actuators being produced, and Emerson’s approach to the market. We were also fortunate to meet and interview one of their clients, as can be seen below.
