AUSTIN, Texas -- January 30, 2014

Emerson Process Management, a global business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), today
officially opened the Emerson Innovation Center - Process Systems and
Solutions in Round Rock, Texas, near Austin.

This 282,000-square-foot, nearly $70 million facility is the global
headquarters for Emerson’s automation systems and project services business,
which helps customers safely, reliably and profitably operate facilities in
industries such as oil and gas, refining, chemicals, power, life sciences,
food and beverages, and metals and mining.

This new Emerson Innovation Center is the third globally. The Emerson
Innovation Center in Marshalltown, Iowa, develops and tests flow control
applications and technologies, replicating real-world conditions no other test
or R&D facility in the world can match. The company’s Emerson Innovation
Center in Pune, India focuses on world-class software application development.

The Emerson Innovation Center in Austin is comprised of several world-class
disciplines under one roof:

  *A technology and product design and support center, providing engineering
    and development for the company’s DeltaV™ digital automation system and
    DeltaV SIS Safety System.
  *The first-ever Emerson Integrated Operations (iOps) Center where customers
    can explore new ways of managing remote operations and of enabling easier
    collaboration by experts located anywhere in the world.
  *Emerson Process Management’s Human Centered Design Institute, an
    industry-leading consulting and engineering practice that drives
    usability-based design into all products Emerson Process Management
    designs and manufactures. By designing products that are easier to use,
    customers gain improved worker effectiveness and lower the requirements
    for specialized knowledge in their workforce.
  *A world-class interoperability and testing lab in which Emerson tests both
    its own products as well as competitors to ensure safe, reliable and
    robust operation.
  *The Life Sciences Industry Center that provides consulting, engineering
    and project management expertise to support pharmaceutical and
    biotechnology customers.
  *Educational Services where more than 2,500 customer personnel gain
    product, technology, and operational skills on the latest technologies.
  *The company’s Project Management Office (PMO) that aligns and integrates
    the company’s best practices, processes, systems and metrics for global
    project execution.

“No other facility in the world can do what our new Emerson Innovation Center
can do,” said Jim Nyquist, president of process systems and solutions for
Emerson Process Management. “We have the brightest minds in the industry
developing world class automation technologies and collaborating with
customers to imagine, plan and execute their vision of future operations to
deliver breakthrough performance.”

Emerson’s automation systems are widely used in process operations around the
world. The company was awarded more than 30 large customer projects valued at
more than $600 million in 2013. It has changed the way automation projects are
done with its innovative DeltaV Electronic Marshalling with CHARMs technology,
which reduces project complexity and risks. Its new Innovation Center is a
showcase for how customers can leverage capabilities like these to reengineer
their businesses to become safe, reliable and profitable.
