Emerson Climate Technologies — Clive Samuels & Associates, 1 Independence Way, Suite 300, Princeton 08540; 609-520-1600; fax, 609-520-0974. Alan Abramson, president. www.emersonclimatetechnologies.com.

Clive Samuels & Associates, the engineering firm on Independence Way, is being closed by its parent company, Emerson Climate Technologies.

According to Emerson spokesman Mark Polzin, the company decided in July to close the office. “Market conditions for this business’ specialized engineering services in the retail space have deteriorated since the economy turned down a few years ago. Restructuring and reorganization were not enough. We are in the process of a phased closure while we complete our current contracts with customers,” said Polzin.

He said Emerson expects “full closure before late September, if not sooner.” Some 30 people will lose their jobs as a result.

Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson based in Sidney, OH, acquired Clive Samuels in 2008. The company is a provider of residential, industrial, and commercial HVAC systems.
