A $19-million-dollar renovation and expansion project, beginning this year, will create one of the largest and most advanced flow control research facilities in the industry. Emerson Process Management will build the Fisher Technology Development Center to increase design and lab testing capabilities.

The facility will be staffed by employees of Emerson’s current R&D group, plus 15 more R&D engineers. “This facility will allow us to continue to develop technologies that help our customers maximize the performance of their plants,” says Terry Buzbee, president of the Fisher division of Emerson.

Emerson says this renovation and expansion project continues the work begun in 1880 when the Fisher Governor Co. began operating. “Process manufacturers have been relying on Fisher valves for well over 100 years, and this expansion will enable us to broaden our global reach to better meet the needs of our global customers,” adds Buzbee.
