Emerson has acquired the Marine Container and Boiler business of Johnson Controls Inc., which Emerson says will enable Emerson Climate Technologies to expand its refrigeration technology and solutions offerings in the global transportation sector. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Johnson Controls’ Denmark-based Marine Container and Boiler business supplies controls for operation of refrigerated sea containers and marine boilers, along with solutions that monitor and report on refrigeration conditions within large groups of marine shipping containers on land or at sea for product quality and food safety.
Emerson Climate Technologies delivers air conditioning and refrigeration technologies and services to the residential, commercial, and retail markets. The new Emerson offerings will be known as Transportation Solutions within the Retail Solutions business of Emerson Climate Technologies.
The Marine Container and Boiler business was part of the Johnson Controls Marine & Navy organization. The remaining businesses within the Marine & Navy organization are not part of this transaction and will continue to operate under Johnson Controls.
