Emerson acquires Paine Electronics business

Emerson has acquired the Paine Electronics business from Paine Electronics LLC, and it will become part of Emerson Process Management. Paine Electronics, a leading manufacturer of pressure transducers, is recognised worldwide for its pressure and temperature instrumentation used in some of the most challenging environments, for example in subsea and downhole measurement for the oil and gas industry.

With this acquisition, Emerson Process Management extends its leadership in providing measurement technologies for the oil and gas industry with expanded upstream capabilities in subsea and downhole drilling operations. The Paine products will join the Rosemount portfolio of measurement technologies.

“Paine products are a natural complement to our already-strong measurement technologies for the oil and gas industry,” said Tom Moser, Emerson group vp for Measurement and Analytical technologies. “We are excited about the synergy between our two companies and the opportunities for global business growth.”

Since 1951, Paine has manufactured pressure and temperature sensors designed for long-term stability, accuracy and reliability in physically harsh environments. Headquartered in East Wenatchee, Washington, USA, Paine Electronics earlier this year opened a new research and development centre that offers advanced design capabilities as well as simulation and testing facilities. Paine has more than 100 employees at manufacturing facilities in East Wenatchee and Renton, also in Washington, USA.
