Richard A. Meeusen Announces Retirement
Richard A. Meeusen will retire as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company, effective December 31, 2018. He will remain Chairman of the Board through 2019. Kenneth C. Bockhorst, currently President, was appointed to the Board effective immediately and will become CEO effective January 1, 2019.
"After nearly a year of working alongside Ken, I am confident this is an appropriate time to transition the chief executive responsibilities," said Meeusen. “Ken has embraced the Badger Meter culture, advanced new growth paths and instituted a continuous improvement philosophy throughout the organization during his tenure as President and Chief Operating Officer. He brings excellent strategic, operational and talent development skills to the role and is passionate about delivering outstanding returns to our stakeholders. Under his leadership, I am convinced Badger will continue to thrive.” Meeusen continued, “It has been a privilege and a highlight of my professional career to work alongside the dedicated and talented team at Badger Meter. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to serve as CEO for the last 16 years, and look forward to continuing to contribute to Badger’s success as a member of the Board.”
Badger Meter Partners with the Marines: JSF Combat Mission For over 100 years, Badger Meter has focused on “Measuring What Matters.” Being a diversified company, Badger Meter is excited to highlight our partnership with the United States Marine Corps. Recently, the F-35B variant stealth fighters were in a combat mission for the first time. The stealth fighters' recent success has created an exciting buzz within our organization.
The F-35B has fantastic capabilities that make this particular model of the Joint Strike Fighter the most strategically relevant of the three variants. The F-35's have the capability to take off and land in short distances. They also have radar-dodging stealth technology, supersonic speeds, close air support capabilities, airborne agility, and a massive array of sensors giving pilots unparalleled access to information.
Badger Meter is happy to design a proprietary hydraulic fluid flow meter that leverages several of our more advanced technologies. The Cox Exact Dual Rotor Turbine Flow Meters, paired with our EC80-style flow computers provide the pinnacle of turbine meter technology. The Exact meter’s hydraulically coupled helical dual rotor design provides exceptional performance and many unparalleled benefits. The patented dual rotor design extends the flow measurement range due to the high incidence angle on the second rotor, resulting in turndown ratios of 120:1 on the smallest meter to 500:1 on larger meters. The exceptional flow range allows universal viscosity curves to blend over a 60:1 turndown ratio range. This wide flow range creates solutions for some of the toughest measurement challenges.
