Emerson has announced it the completion of the purchase of Intelligent Platforms, a division of General Electric (GE). The addition of Intelligent Platforms programmable logic controller (PLC) technologies will enable Emerson to expand its capabilities in machine control and discrete applications and will provide its customers broader control and management of their operations.

Enhancement of Performance 

Intelligent Platforms, with its portfolio of cloud-connected controllers and devices for smart plants, will serve as a strong complement to Emerson’s industry-leading Plantweb digital ecosystem. Through this expansion, Emerson is growing opportunities across process and discrete industries as well as hybrid markets such as metals and mining, life sciences, food and beverage, and packaging. By interfacing Intelligent Platforms’ PLC technology with Emerson’s leading distributed control systems, customers will be able to connect “islands of automation” within the plant to further enhance operational performance, safety and reliability.

Emerson Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David N. Farr said that “This is another important investment in our global portfolio of automation technologies, offering discrete and machine control capabilities that complement our process control expertise to provide better solutions to our customers.”

Intelligent Platforms is based in Charlottesville, Va. with approximately 650 employees worldwide and 2017 sales of $210 million. The business has a 25-year track record as an industrial automation innovator for machine control, industrial computing, input/output (I/O) and networking devices, project and integration services and other hardware/software solutions.
