ST. LOUIS, April 28, 2017 – Emerson (NYSE: EMR) today announced that it has completed the purchase of the Valves & Controls business from Pentair plc (NYSE: PNR) for $3.15 billion.

“This acquisition enables us to continue to grow our global footprint in automation and expand our leadership position in key served markets such as chemical, power, refining, mining and oil and gas,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David N. Farr. “By adding these highly respected products and aftermarket services to our portfolio, Emerson is better positioned to serve the needs of our global customers.”
