BADGER METER REDUCES LEAD TIME TO TWO WEEKS FOR ITS RESEARCH CONTROL® VALVES PRODUCT LINE
MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Effective immediately, Badger Meter has established a new lead time of two weeks for Research Control® Valves (RCV) within their broad standard offering – a reduction of more than 50 percent.
For many years, lead times for RCV valve products ranged from four to six weeks. Over the past year, Badger Meter has made major customer-focused investments in its Tulsa, Oklahoma facility where RCV valves are manufactured. Through these investments, Badger Meter has optimized its inventory, enhanced its machining capability, improved its system infrastructure, and increased its staff to ensure our new two-week standard lead time.
"Our goal in reducing the standard offering to two weeks is to leverage our proven valve solution with an incredible delivery time," said Brian Kettner, marketing manager. He added, "Badger Meter's dedication to the RCV product line will help our customers get what they need, when they need it."
Valve products outside of the standard offering are available with lead times ranging from two weeks or more. Non-standard products are also eligible for "Hot Shot" expedited shipment for customers who need custom valve products within a shorter lead time.
