Invensys Process Systems (IPS) has announced the opening of a new 18,300-square-metre facility in Shanghai, which will be the largest in the region and will strengthen the company’s commitment to clients in the Asia Pacific market.

“Our new Shanghai facility will enable us to leverage our world-class people and 100 years of innovation and technology, and we are committed to help China meet the increasing demand for reliable, environmentally friendly energy. We look forward to delivering our full suite of services and solutions to help our clients in the power, nuclear power, refining, oil and gas and petrochemical industries meet critical demands.”
