Mike Train, executive president of Emerson Automation Solutions, said, “Pentair’s Valves & Controls business fits extremely well with Emerson’s existing portfolio of Fisher control valves and regulators and Bettis actuators.”

“The addition of market leading product brands such as Anderson Greenwood, Vanessa and Keystone creates the most comprehensive global valve business. Emerson’s final control portfolio now includes control valves, pressure relief, butterfly, gate, globe, ball and check valves, and an extensive global network of more than 200 service centers,” he continued.

Train added: “The combination of these two leading businesses will allow us to better support and help customers select the right product and maintain it for the life of the asset.”
