About Us


First established as an oil field supply house and manufacturer’s representative in 1929, the Bettis Company evolved into a pioneer in the valve actuation business and was integrated into the Emerson group of companies in June 1999. From actuators in the early years to the sophisticated pipeline integrity systems of today, the Bettis brand has always included cutting-edge engineering, technology, and automation innovation.


Developing and supporting Bettis products — including the world’s leading electric, pneumatic and hydraulic valve actuators — are Emerson experts in Houston, TX, USA, and around the world.

Bettis products provide lasting performance with a minimum of fuss. In fact, many of the early actuators remain in active service today and still require little maintenance. Customers choose the Bettis brand for almost every energy related industry including on and offshore oil and gas transmission, petrochemical, and petroleum refining. Other significant Bettis markets include chemical, power industry (including nuclear), pulp and paper, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, marine, and water systems.
