Lakeside & Valve Automation Centre (VAC)


In August 2016, Emerson announced the planned purchase of Pentair’s Valves & Controls business. The combination of these acquired products and Emerson’s legacy brands forms Emerson’s new Final Control Group. Emerson’s Final Control is truly — All Valves Everywhere! Earlier this year, Emerson also announced that Lakeside and the Local Business Partner Network in North America would be the exclusive single integrated channel for all Final Control products, enabling customers the ability to entrust one entity with all of their valve needs.


To meet this objective and to best serve our customers, the valve teams at Lakeside Process Controls and The Valve Automation Center (VAC) are merging. As a result, VAC product sales and support will now be delivered to our customers through Lakeside Process Controls. With this change, we are pleased to announce that our VAC division in Guelph and Sarnia will focus specifically on Mechanical Services & Production. Focusing on the lifecycle of products and assets for our customers allows VAC and Lakeside to create, support and manage plant processes and equipment, in partnership. From this point forward will be your online source for all previous offerings.


Lakeside now offers a complete line of Control Valves, Regulators, Relief Valves, Isolation Valves and Actuators. We are also pleased to announce that we are your exclusive channel for the following Emerson acquired brands: Crosby, Anderson Greenwood, Keystone, Clarkson, Vanessa, KTM, Neotecha, Varec, Yarway, Kunkle, Sempell, Cash & Penberthy.


Lakeside and its VAC Division are dedicated to meeting all of your valve needs — All Valves Everywhere!
