Emerson acquires Groveley Detection, Ltd.

Acquisition expands depth of Emerson Process Management’s safety monitoring portfolio

ST. LOUIS (June 24, 2013)
– Emerson Process Management, a business of Emerson (NYSE:  EMR), has acquired Groveley Detection Ltd., a leading innovator and developer of ultrasonic gas leak detection solutions for both offshore and onshore oil and gas installations. UK-based Groveley Detection was the first company to develop a piezo-electric based ultrasonic gas leak detector engineered for extreme industrial applications. 

Groveley will join the company’s Rosemount Analytical business unit, expanding Emerson’s safety monitoring portfolio. With the completed acquisition, Emerson significantly strengthens its position in the global safety monitoring market by adding Groveley’s ultrasonic gas leak detection technology to the complementary Net Safety fixed gas detection and flame detection product line. Groveley’s products are used in a broad range of energy exploration and processing applications, in addition to several industrial plant settings.

“The acquisition of Groveley expands our capabilities to offer the most comprehensive solution to our customers for their total safety monitoring requirements,” said Ken Biele, president of Emerson Process Management’s Analytical Group. “The addition also leverages our companies’ synergies in sales, marketing, engineering and other key operational areas.”

Robert Bennet, Managing Director at Groveley, added: “Joining a global leader like Emerson Process Management represents an incredible opportunity. We expect our customer base to grow exponentially, as well as our ability to help solve customer problems by developing some of the most innovative safety products in the industry.”
