“Our customers appreciate consistent, high value-added services and support across the multi-site operations they run,” said Frank deJong, president North America for Emerson Automation Solutions. “Many of them cite inconsistent local support as an industry-wide problem that leads to variability in project execution and operations. As the impact of digital technologies expand across the enterprise, Emerson and our Emerson Impact Partners are uniquely positioned through a focused, systematic approach to provide the expertise and solutions that drive peer-leading performance.”

All Emerson Impact Partners have long-term collaborative relationships with Emerson – some spanning over 100 years – and the communities they serve, providing customers with reliable, innovative solutions, services and support.

The value of the integrated Emerson Impact Partner Network is clearly demonstrated when specialized expertise is required to augment project implementation or operational improvement teams.
