Company Profile and Business Description for Badger Meter

Badger Meter, Inc., incorporated on March 9, 1905, is a manufacturer and marketer of products incorporating flow measurement, control and communication solutions, serving water utilities, municipalities, and commercial and industrial customers around the world. The Company's products measure water, oil, chemicals and other fluids, provide and communicate timely measurement data. The Company's product lines include two categories: sales of water meters and related technologies to municipal water utilities (municipal water), and sales of meters to various industries for water and other fluids (flow instrumentation).

The municipal water offering includes mechanical and ultrasonic (electronic) water meters and related technologies and services used by water utilities as the basis for generating water and wastewater. The market for the Company's water meter products is North America, primarily the United States. The Company also has operations in other geographical markets, including Europe, the Middle East and South America. In the municipal water category, the Company is engaged in the sale of water meters and related technologies and services. The flow instrumentation category includes the sale of meters and valves around the world to measure and control materials flowing through a pipe or pipeline, including water, air, steam, oil, and other liquids and gases. The Company's flow instrumentation products are used in various applications, such as water/wastewater; heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC); oil and gas; chemical and petrochemical; test and measurement; automotive aftermarket, and the concrete construction process. The Company's flow measurement technologies are sold to original equipment manufacturers as the primary flow measurement device within a product or system.

The Company's residential and commercial water meters are classified as manually read meters or remotely read meters through radio technology. The manually read meter consists of a water meter and a register that provides a visual totalized meter reading. The Company's meters equipped with radio transmitters (endpoints) receive flow measurement data from encoder registers attached to the water meter, which is encrypted and transmitted through radio frequency to a receiver that collects and formats the data for water utility billing systems. These remotely read, or mobile, systems are either automatic meter reading (AMR) systems, where a vehicle equipped for meter reading purposes, including a radio receiver, computer and reading software, collects the data from utilities' meters, or fixed network advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems, where data is gathered utilizing a network of permanent data collectors or gateway receivers that are always active or listening for the radio transmission from the utilities' meters.

The ORION family of radio endpoints provides water utilities with a range of options for meter reading. These include ORION Migratable (ME) (for mobile meter reading), ORION Fixed Network (SE) (for traditional fixed network applications) and ORION Cellular (for infrastructure-free meter reading). The Company's BEACON AMA Managed Solution is the metering technology. BEACON AMA combines the BEACON analytical software suite with ORION technologies using two-way fixed and cellular networks in a managed solution, improving utilities' visibility of their water consumption. The Company's BEACON AMA secure, cloud-hosted software suite includes a dashboard, the ability to establish alerts for specific conditions, and consumer engagement tools that allow end water customers to view and manage their water usage activity. Flow instrumentation and specialty products serve flow measurement and control applications across an industrial spectrum. The Company's specific flow measurement and control applications and technologies serve the flow measurement market through both customized and standard flow instrumentation solutions. The Company's products are available under brand names, including Recordall, E-Series, ORION, Hedland, Dynasonics, Blancett and Research Control.

The Company competes with Sensus, Neptune Technology Group, Inc., Master Meter, Inc., Mueller Water Products, Inc., Kamstrup A/S, Diehl Metering GmbH, Itron, Inc., Elster Group GmbH, Emerson Electric Company, Krohne Messtechnik GmbH, Endress+Hauser AG, Yokogawa Electric Corporation, Onicon Incorporated, Cameron International Corp. and AW-Lake Company.
