Rockwell Automation to Serve as Main Automation Contractor for LSB Industries

LSB Industries Inc. (“LSB”), a diversified industrial manufacturer of chemical and HVAC products, has awarded a $5.3 million contract to Rockwell Automation. Rockwell Automation will serve as main automation contractor, providing a $3.5 million PlantPAx process automation system with electrical, controls, and instrumentation services and a $1.8 million Ethernet motor control system.

The systems will be installed at both of LSB’s new plants (nitric acid and ammonia) currently being constructed at its El Dorado, Ark. facility.

“Rockwell Automation won the order based on its strong installed base, plant preference at our El Dorado ammonia plant, and its strategic partnership with the Casale Group,” said Dallas Robinson, Vice President of Operations at LSB.

Working with Casale Group, a Swiss systems integrator specializing in ammonia and methanol, and Rexel, a global electrical distributor, Rockwell Automation won a major order for this ammonia plant, strengthening its position in the chemical sector.

“We’re pleased to deliver this important project for LSB Industries,” said Terry Gebert, vice president and general manager, Rockwell Automation global solutions. “Our domain expertise, process knowledge, and project management will help LSB Industries implement and operate profitable, sustainable facilities.”
