Emerson buys temperature monitoring firms

PakSense-Locus-TraxxUSA: Emerson has expanded its presence in cold chain control with the acquisition of two temperature monitoring companies.

The St-Louis-based technology and engineering firm has announced the acquisition of temperature logging company Locus Traxx and temperature monitoring business PakSense.

“The addition of Locus Traxx and PakSense to our portfolio strongly positions Emerson to address the high-stakes challenges faced by end-users in the agriculture, transport and retail industries to keep their products fresh, while helping them drive incremental growth,” said Bob Sharp, Emerson’s executive vice president and commercial and residential solutions business leader.

Locus Traxx, based in Jupiter, Florida, offers real-time temperature loggers, using cloud-based analytics. This allows cargo owners to monitor food and high-value shipments throughout the entire supply chain.

PakSense, headquartered in Boise, Idaho, offers a full complement of temperature monitoring solutions fitting a wide range of shipments and cost/benefit scenarios that monitor the condition of perishable goods through the supply chain.

Emerson says it will include Locus Traxx and PakSense in a newly formed business focused on cargo-based solutions.

“This is a strong growth market for Emerson,” Bob Sharp added. “Providing this more expansive solution that covers the whole fresh food process from grower to retailer is another example of how we are focusing the company to be stronger, faster and more nimble for our customers.”
