Emerson acquires pneumatic, motion control products manufacturer


St. Louis, MOEmerson has acquired Numatics Inc. , a Highland, MI-based manufacturer of pneumatic control and motion-control products for industrial applications. The move extends Emerson’s portfolio of fluid power products and technologies in the global industrial automation market.

“This further strengthens our offering to global customers in several high-growth applications areas,” said Jean-Paul Montupet, business leader for industrial automation at Emerson, “including electronics manufacturing and assembly, medical and analytical, packaging, and other high-speed assembly.”
