Emerson to buy General Electric’s Intelligent Platforms business

30 October 2018

Emerson looks set to acquire Intelligent Platforms, a division of General Electric.

Intelligent Platforms’ PLC technologies will enable Emerson to provide its customers with broader control and management of their operations and it will expand opportunities for Emerson in machine control and discrete applications across process industries and target hybrid markets, such as metals & mining, life sciences, food & beverage and packaging. 

By interfacing Intelligent Platforms’ PLC technology with Emerson’s DCSs, customers will be able to connect islands of automation within the plant to enhance operational performance, safety and reliability. 

Intelligent Platforms recently developed a new family of cloud-connected controllers and devices to enable smarter plants, and this will complement Emerson’s focus on digital transformation and the Industrial Internet of Things through its Plantweb digital ecosystem.
