Emerson Chooses Brookfield, Connecticut, for Global Headquarters Product Line
Emerson purchased a 13-acre parcel in Brookfield’s Berkshire Industrial Park, less than two miles from the existing Danbury headquarters and has received local approvals to build on the site. Groundbreaking for the construction of the new facility is currently scheduled for June 2019. The new 140,000-square-foot building will house the 220 professional staff, engineers and production team in the current headquarters.
According to company officials, Emerson expects to open its new assembly technologies headquarters in late 2020. The new facility will include state-of-the-art laboratories, offices, manufacturing space and a customer experience center. Branson-branded products are leading customer-focused solutions for plastic joining, ultrasonic metal joining and precision processing.
“Our new headquarters will provide a showcase for the great work we do here in Connecticut to drive growth and innovation, including high-tech spaces where customers can see our products in action,” said John Meek, President of Assembly Technologies for Emerson. “This exciting investment will help us continue delivering world-class Branson solutions to our customers while attracting and retaining the next generation of engineers and manufacturing leaders.”
“Emerson greatly appreciates the incentives approved by the town of Brookfield and the state of Connecticut to support this important project for our Branson portfolio, and we look forward to continued investment in this community,” Meek added.
“At Emerson, we specialize in collaborating with manufacturers to identify technology-driven solutions to the challenges they face, which will be made possible at this new, modern facility,” said Lal Karsanbhai, Executive President of Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “We look forward to building this state-of-the-art facility to support the development of new and innovative technology solutions to address the materials joining and precision cleaning needs of the automotive, medical, food and beverage, consumer products and electronics industries.”
