MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Badger Meter, Inc. , (NYSE: BMI), a leading global innovator and manufacturer of flow measurement and control products, today announced it is celebrating its 110th anniversary throughout 2015. The theme of “110 Years of Making Water Visible” recognizes the company’s history of innovation and new products that provide next generation flow management solutions for customers around the world.

“The two Milwaukee entrepreneurs who invented the first ‘frost proof’ water meter in 1905 never imagined their original invention would be the foundation for a company that has grown to become a worldwide leader in flow measurement technology,” said Richard A. Meeusen, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Badger Meter. “Today, our products help water utilities, municipalities, and commercial and industrial customers measure virtually anything that moves through a pipe.  They play an important role in a variety of applications, from the water meter found in your basement and to heating, ventilating and air conditioning units in office buildings, irrigation systems on the golf course, and products used in getting oil from the wellhead to the gas station.”

Added Meeusen, “Whether at home, at work, at play or on the go, Badger Meter helps the world manage and conserve its most precious natural resources.”

Industry-leading technology and product innovation have been the hallmark of Badger Meter for 110 years. The company’s most recent product introductions include the cellular-based BEACON® Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) managed solution, the E-Series® ultrasonic meter line and the ORION® SE two-way fixed network system.
