Plant profile

Over the last decade, the Vanessa Series 30,000 manufacturing plant has undergone various expansion phases which were made necessary by the ever increasing demand for its products. The latest, a massive development, has brought the plant to cover a total area of over 70,000 square meters from the previous 50,000.

The new structure enables Emerson Vanessa to carry out a number of special operations in-house, including the testing and assembling of NPS 140 plus valves. Moreover, thanks to the construction of a fully independent lean production facility (Integrated Manufacturing Cell), we can now produce over 1,000 valves per month with diameters comprised between NPS 3 and NPS 24 (class 150 and 300) in carbon and stainless steel with extremely short delivery times.

This large scale expansion facilitated the installation of the latest generation machinery, including computer-controlled rotary transfer machines, capstan lathes, milling machines, radial drilling machines and other specialized machinery. The machine shop, storage and assembly areas are now serviced by a crane capacity of 20 tons. Vanessa Series 30,000 manufacturing plant is conveniently located near major highway links and just a short drive away from Linate and Malpensa International Airports in Milan.
