Emerson considers expanding in Shakopee, creating 400 new jobs


Emerson Process Management Rosemount, a division of St. Louis-based Emerson Electronics Co., is eying an empty ADC Telecommunications building that was never occupied in Shakopee, Minn., to open a new manufacturing facility, the Business Journal reports. The expansion would generate about 400 new jobs and about 100 workers would be transferred from other facilities.

The Star Tribune says Emerson is asking city, county and state officials for a $6 million package in economic development subsidies. The Shakopee City Council is scheduled to consider the proposal on Tuesday, Dec. 4.

Emerson, which has its Twin Cities headquarters in Chanhassen, Minn., plans to make metering technology for hydraulic equipment at the new plant and expects to open the facility next year, MPR reports.
