TopWorx Valvetop discrete valve controllers connect on/off valves to a variety of fieldbus networking protocols, and GO Switch leverless limit switches provide reliable position sensing in harsh environments and tough applications. The company has additional locations in the United Kingdom, Singapore, and South Africa.

"TopWorx is a strong and growing business that is highly valued by its customers,” said John Berra, president, Emerson Process Management. "The acquisition gives us a quick and significant entry into the discrete instrumentation market, and is highly complementary to our existing valve, valve automation, and instrument businesses. TopWorx will extend the benefits of our PlantWeb digital plant architecture, and enable us to provide a complete valve instrument portfolio, both wired and wireless.” Berra claimed
“It is exciting to join what I consider the best and most progressive company in our industry,” said Charlie Marcum, president of TopWorx. “Emerson Process Management’s global reach and technology leadership will accelerate our growth and broaden our product offering, enabling us to serve customers even better than before.”
