Emerson Selects Control Southern Inc. to Sell Former Pentair Valve Products

Control Southern expands and now has the most complete solutions portfolio and service network in the Southeast US.


Effective July 5, 2017, Control Southern Inc. has been named by Emerson as the official Southeast representative of most products acquired during Emerson’s recent acquisition of the Valves & Controls business unit of Pentair. In addition to the well-known Emerson brands that Control Southern currently represents, like Fisher, Bettis, Virgo, EIM, and Enardo, Control Southern now represents Anderson Greenwood, Crosby, Keystone, Vanessa, Clarkson and Yarway. The addition of these product lines and accompanying services means that Control Southern can now stock, sell and service all types of valves.

Until today, across a wide range of industries, industrial manufacturers have been buying valves and valve services from many different providers, which adds complexity and cost. Now, industrial process operators, purchasers, and engineers in the Southeast Region can call one number for all valves & valve service needs, which includes control valves, automated valves, isolation valves and pressure relief valves.

Control Southern President Doug Turner understands that automating and operating reliable processes takes more than dependable equipment, it takes a team you can rely on.

“At Control Southern, we believe in delivering integrity with every interaction. Our automation customers face real challenges building, operating, and maintaining safe, reliable, and efficient processes. They need a qualified team they can depend on through all stages of their operations. As we grow, we are evolving our business, adding collaborative people, quality products, and dependable services. Our aim is to provide our customers in the process industry with safer, more reliable, easy-to access solutions that deliver improved financial results. When integrity leads, success follows.”
