Emerson completes acquisition of American Governor Company

2 April 2020

Emerson has completed the purchase of American Governor Company, with the acquisition adding to Emerson’s technology capabilities and expertise in the renewables and power industry.

“As the power industry builds on its renewables focus, having the right tools to effectively harness this natural energy is critical,” said Bob Yeager, president of Emerson’s power & water solutions business. “This important addition of a highly-respected hydropower company will enable us to provide comprehensive solutions to our power customers, from generating consistent hydropower to providing the industry’s leading control system to safely and efficiently manage power operations.”

The power industry is increasingly seeking opportunities to introduce digital transformation technologies to help predict, manage and control electricity generation coming from disparate sources. American Governor’s digital governor controllers, which complement Emerson’s industry-leading Ovation distributed control system and RX3i programmable automation controllers, are helping the industry realize the benefits of digital transformation for more efficient, safe and reliable operations, said Emerson in a statement.

American Governor has a global footprint exceeding 1,500 customer locations, and offers aftermarket capabilities with advanced customer service and training programs. American Governor is headquartered near Philadelphia and has about 50 employees.
