Emerson’s regulator unit in Jubail expands

October 2014

EMERSON Process Management has expanded the capabilities of its Jubail facility in Saudi Arabia to include the production, testing, and servicing of pressure reducing regulators. This investment is part of Emerson’s long-term commitment to address the growing needs of its customers in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East region.

The Emerson Jubail facility, opened in 2011 in partnership with leading industrial enterprise Saudi FAL, is now capable of annually producing 2,500 Fisher pressure reducing regulators, which are used in a wide range of applications including process and specialty gas processing, natural gas distribution, and fuel gas supply.

The facility, which includes the production, testing, and servicing of pressure reducing regulators, can also conduct full assembly and testing of Emerson’s regulators, and provide complete repair and calibration services.

“The expansion of this facility in Jubail represents Emerson’s first regulator manufacturing capability in the Middle East. It is a testament to our commitment to be closer to our customers and more closely aligned with their requirements,” said Steve Robinson, director of Emerson Process Management, Regulator Technologies in Middle East and Africa (MEA).

With this expansion, the Jubail facility has become a part of Emerson Process Management’s Regulator Technologies global network of manufacturing locations, which include McKinney, Texas; Elk River, Minnesota; Nuevo Laredo, Mexico; Sorocaba, Brazil; Chartres, France; Bologna, Italy; Selmsdorf, Germany; Cluj, Romania; Shanghai and Chengdu, China; Singapore; Tokyo, Japan; and Chennai, India. These locations complement one another to deliver solutions and services to customers quickly and cost-effectively, worldwide.

In addition to the expansion, the Emerson-Saudi FAL Jubail facility has the space, resources, and qualifications to manufacture, assemble, integrate, test, and service a wide array of other Emerson solutions including valve automation technologies, Fisher control valves, Rosemount measurement instruments, and the DeltaV distributed control system.
