Emerson Acquires Marine Controls Business From Johnson Controls

Press Release
Tuesday, April 17, 2012

St. Louis, Mo. – Emerson today announced that it has acquired the Marine Container and Boiler business of Johnson Controls Inc., enabling Emerson Climate Technologies to expand its refrigeration technology and solutions offerings in the global transportation sector.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Johnson Controls’ Denmark-based Marine Container and Boiler business supplies controls for optimal operation of refrigerated sea containers and marine boilers, along with solutions which monitor and report on refrigeration conditions within large groups of marine shipping containers on land or at sea to ensure product quality and food safety. The hardware and software solutions monitor container conditions and notify shipping companies and terminals of deviations outside of optimal ranges so they can take appropriate actions. Johnson Controls’ solutions are installed on more than 650,000 containers and 2,200 ships, which connect to a central monitoring server.

“This acquisition enables us to bring more value to the global transportation market,” said Ed Purvis, global business leader for Emerson Climate Technologies. “Marine container monitoring and control, combined with our compressors and diagnostic technologies, which are also installed on shipping containers, opens the door for us to provide a full range of powerful solutions to help global shipping companies and transportation managers ensure that their cargo is transported in optimal conditions.”

The new Emerson offerings will be known as Transportation Solutions within the Retail Solutions business of Emerson Climate Technologies.

The Marine Container and Boiler business was part of the Johnson Controls Marine & Navy organization. The remaining businesses within the Marine & Navy organization are not part of this transaction and will continue to operate under Johnson Controls.
