WAUKESHA — Badger Meter, Inc. announced Wednesday it acquired the assets of Carolina Meter & Supply, based in Wilmington, North Carolina, and hired its five employees.

Milwaukee-based Badger Meter is a manufacturer of flow measurement, control and communications solutions. Carolina Meter distributes Badger Meter products to municipal water utility customers in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Following the acquisition, Carolina Meter will do business as “National Meter & Automation,” Badger Meter’s wholly owned distribution sales organization.

“The acquisition of Carolina Meter is the third in our ongoing strategy to enhance Badger Meter’s sales channels,” said Richard Meeusen, Badger Meter chairman, president and CEO, in a statement. “By doing so, customers can expect faster delivery times of in-stock products, and more importantly, expanded sales, technical and operational support services across the country.”

The acquisition was effective Wednesday.
