Emerson Expands Cylinder Manufacturing Capacity in Canada to Better Serve Automation Customers

DCS Emerson Expands Cylinder Manufacturing Capacity in Canada 1 400

February 16, 2022

Emerson, a U.S.-headquartered global technology and engineering company, has expanded the manufacturing capacity of its Brantford, Ontario, facility to better serve Canada’s immediate-demand automation market. Emerson has added production of its complete range of AVENTICS™ Series PRA Profile Cylinders, Series TRB Tie Rod Cylinders and Series TaskMaster® TM5 NFPA Profile Cylinders.

The company’s investment in local cylinder production will give Canadian automation customers shorter lead times for customized cylinders, estimated at just one to five business days, as well as after-market service. Receiving critical components so quickly can help customers across all industry segments get their products to market faster and minimize end users’ downtime.

Canada has a strong automation industry, and the 63,000-square-foot facility is in the same province as more than 350 automation and robotics-related companies, the largest concentration in the country. The Brantford expansion is part of Emerson’s global business strategy to provide its customers with the highest level of service and strengthen the supply chain through regional manufacturing.

“The expansion demonstrates Emerson’s investment in and commitment to our Canadian automation customers,” said Stephane Meunier, National Sales Director, Emerson. “The automation industry in Canada continues to grow, and we want to ensure our customers’ success by getting them components critical to their product designs as quickly as possible.”

Emerson’s Brantford facility also produces pneumatic actuators and valves under its AVENTICS and ASCO brands, including its AVENTICS Series 2000 and Series 500 Valve Manifold Solutions, AVENTICS Series 650 Air Preparation Units and Series A and C NFPA Actuators as well as customized actuator and integrated enclosure solutions.

Emerson has one of the industry’s broadest portfolios of fluid control and pneumatic devices that incorporate sensing and monitoring capabilities to improve uptime and performance, enhance safety and optimize energy usage at industrial and food manufacturing facilities, in automotive and transport equipment, and for other applications.

Emerson’s Brantford production facility is located at 17 Airport Road, Brantford, Ontario, N3T 5M8.
