Emerson acquires Johnson's marine control business

EMERSON has acquired the Marine Container and Boiler business of Johnson Controls, enabling Emerson Climate Technologies to expand its refrigeration technology and solutions offerings in the global transportation sector.
Johnson Controls' Denmark-based Marine Container and Boiler business supplies controls for optimal operation of refrigerated sea containers and marine boilers, along with solutions that monitor and report on refrigeration conditions within large groups of marine shipping containers on land or at sea to ensure product quality and food safety. Johnson Controls' solutions are installed on more than 650,000 containers and 2,200 ships, which connect to a central monitoring server.

'Marine container monitoring and control, combined with our compressors and diagnostic technologies that also are installed on shipping containers, opens the door for us to provide a full range of powerful solutions to help global shipping companies and transportation managers ensure their cargo is transported in optimal conditions,' said Ed Purvis, global business leader for Emerson Climate Technologies.

The new Emerson offerings will be known as Transportation Solutions within the Retail Solutions business of Emerson Climate Technologies.

'The addition of marine container monitoring and control allows us to provide shipping companies and terminals with enhanced capabilities in asset management, system optimization, and predictive diagnostics throughout the full range of the transportation supply chain,' said Mark Dunson, president, Retail Solutions, Emerson Climate Technologies. 'The acquisition is a perfect fit with our existing Retail Solutions business, expanding the capabilities we're able to provide our customers.'
