The brand provides “advanced metering technologies to utilities and municipalities” making it a crucial part of Xylem’s mission to “solve water”. As aging infrastructure and out of date measurement technology clogs up the public’s access to water, wastage abounds. Governor Roy Cooper says that the brand’s expansion will create 301 new job over five years, and the company is expected to invest as much as $4 million by the end of 2019.
