Emerson Automation Solutions is a global technology leader helping high-impact industries achieve key sustainability and operational goals. Wielding more than a decade of success in Round Rock, the company continues to grow its influence around the world from a city with a business-friendly climate and notable access to talent.    

A Supportive Climate for Business  

In 2014 Emerson opened its 282,000-square-foot Process Systems and Solutions Innovation Center in Round Rock to drive research for its process control and automation technologies. The company has since brought 750 new jobs to the city, making it one of Round Rock’s largest employers. 

Emerson Automation Solutions also has a history of neighborly support from the third-largest PC vendor by unit sales, Dell Technologies, located just a few minutes away. The companies have been collaborating for years on projects like Emerson’s DeltaV™ Digital Automation System, which helps customers expedite the development and manufacturing of innovative products and services.  

Growing Business and Community 

 In November 2021, Emerson announced plans to expand its existing facility with a new, next-generation collaboration workspace. A few months later in February 2022, Round Rock City Council approved an economic incentive agreement for the company that will result in $9 million in real property improvement and business personal property by the end of 2023. Operations at the expanded facility will also create at least 50 new jobs as part of the agreement. 

“Emerson moved to Round Rock more than 10 years ago and has appreciated the long-term support and collaboration with the City of Round Rock and the business community here,” said Nathan Pettus, president of Emerson’s Process Systems and Solutions business. “We thank the City for this continued support of our capital investment plans that will help us attract and retain employees and grow our business in Round Rock.” 

Companies like Emerson continue to expand in Round Rock because of available talent from higher education institutions like Austin Community College and a business climate that advocates for company success.
