Sensus has opened a new meter manufacturing and assembly facility in Fuzhou, Fujian Province, the People's Republic of China. The facility, with capacity to produce 150,000 meters annually, will meet growing demand for advanced meters in China, Southeast Asia and other markets.

"Quality is the way we set ourselves apart from the competition," said Sensus President Randy Bays. "This factory builds upon that strength, adding significantly to both the superiority and breadth of our solutions."

The manufacturing and assembling facility, which went into operation in February this year, is where the WPD, WSD, MeiTwin and 420PC meters are now produced.

"We are extremely proud to have a new, state-of-the-art facility with the most efficient processes in China," said Dr Jianing Zha, general manager, Sensus China. "Along with our existing expertise and strong interest in the China market, this will open a new chapter for Sensus' growth plans in the Asia Pacific Region."

The Fuzhou facility will meet demand for Sensus meters in Asia—including China, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam—as well as Oceania, South America and Europe.
