Award recognizes innovation and leadership in driving improved workflow

ROSEMONT, ILL. (MAY 16, 2019) --
Emerson has been recognized with the 2019 Plant Engineering Award by the American Foundry Society (AFS) for its commitment to continuous improvement at its South Milwaukee Foundry. The foundry manufactures electrical fittings, enclosures and other cast products that enable safe, reliable power connections for customers in oil and gas, power, chemical, and construction industries, among others.

The honor recognizes Emerson's innovation and leadership in driving improved workflow by updating the plant's processes and equipment to the very latest industry standards, from melting operations to the coreroom. The award was presented to Emerson at the CastExpo tradeshow in Atlanta.

The AFS Plant Engineering Award recognizes plants' engineering achievements in planning, installation, operation and maintenance and automation of foundry equipment. The award's emphasis is on application and implementation of new and innovative equipment, and its purpose is to advance technical expertise and professionalism of foundry engineering.

The AFS is a Schaumburg, Illinois-based trade association representing more than 800 foundries in the $33 billion metal casting industry.
