Emerson Plans $15 Million Renovation at Chanhassen, Minnesota, Plant

Emerson, a global technology and engineering company, will invest $15 million to renovate its manufacturing facility in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The company will increase production capacity of its Rosemount measurement and analytical equipment.

The firm will convert 30,000 square feet of offices into manufacturing space at the facility. Officials expect to hire 80 new manufacturing and manufacturing support jobs over the next three years, paying salaries that average $27.02 an hour.

The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) is supporting the project with an $850,000 grant from the Job Creation Fund and a $450,000 forgivable loan from the Minnesota Investment Fund.

According to state officials, Emerson acquired Rosemount in 1976. Founded in 1956, Rosemount Engineering Co. specialized in precision products for the aerospace and defense industries. NASA and the U.S. Air Force were among the company’s early customers.

Emerson’s growth is tied to the adoption of wireless and pervasive sensing applications that enable the Industrial Internet of Things programs, which are transforming global industrial facilities around the world.

“Emerson is a leading producer of smart instrumentation and other technology for customers in refining, oil and gas, and other industries,” said DEED Commissioner Shawntera Hardy. “We thank the company for its commitment to Minnesota and for bringing new jobs to Chanhassen.”
