Emerson to invest $100 million to create new innovation center in Colorado

July 1, 2020
The expanded Boulder facility will offer a hands-on interactive plant environment that simulates real-world industrial manufacturing conditions for worker training and upskilling.

Emerson announced it will invest more than $100 million in Boulder to significantly expand its manufacturing space and launch a new innovation center focused on research, new product development and industry training for its advanced flow measurement products.

Emerson’s advanced flow measurement technologies and diagnostics help customers in the life sciences, food and beverage, chemical, power and energy industries. The new innovation center will drive innovation and new product development to enable customers in these critical industries to realize performance improvement in production, reliability, safety and sustainability.

The nearly 180,000-square-foot expansion includes a new, 85,000-square-foot laboratory and manufacturing facility to design and develop products, technologies and software that measure and control the flow of material in a manufacturing process. The expanded Boulder facility will offer a hands-on interactive plant environment that simulates real-world industrial manufacturing conditions for worker training and upskilling to help reshape the future workforce. The experiential training facility will provide Emerson customers with hands-on access to advanced products and technologies, including flow, temperature, level, pressure and wireless instrumentation, valves and regulators, as well as Emerson’s control systems and Plantweb digital ecosystem.
