Emerson to acquire Cooper-Atkins
USA: Emerson has agreed to acquire Cooper-Atkins, a leading manufacturer of temperature management and monitoring products for foodservice, healthcare and industrial markets.
Established in 1885, Cooper-Atkins has built a reputation as a leading manufacturer and provider of time, temperature and humidity instruments. Headquartered in Middlefield, Connecticut, Cooper-Atkins is a privately-owned company with approximately 150 employees. It has offices and operations in Ohio, Florida and Singapore.
Cooper-Atkins is a longtime technology leader in foodservice markets with a comprehensive offering of temperature management and monitoring products for spot inspection and fixed location uses, including restaurants and supermarkets.
“This acquisition further strengthens our ability to meet the evolving needs of our cold chain customers – from grower to retailer – to help provide consistent and safe control of food and other temperature-sensitive goods,” said Robert T Sharp, executive president, Emerson Commercial & Residential Solutions.
Cooper-Atkins is seen as a strong complement to Emerson’s global cold chain business, which includes the ProAct Services portfolio for supermarkets and the Cargo Solutions business, which provides real-time perishable cargo tracking and monitoring services.
