MILWAUKEE — Badger Meter, a global innovator and manufacturer of flow measurement and control solutions, announced it has entered in a channel partner agreement with Watertech of America, a Greenfield, Wis.-based total system management provider with chemical and equipment expertise for the treatment of water and wastewater in industrial and commercial markets, according to a press release.

Through the strategic partnership, Watertech will recommend Badger Meter Flow Instrumentation products to its existing customers in energy, food & beverage, healthcare, commercial/institutional and medium industry, stated the release.

Both companies are members of The Water Council, based in Milwaukee, which includes a network of more than 150 water technology companies working together to succeed in the world water marketplace. Badger Meter is a founding company and Watertech has held membership since the organization’s inception in 2007, noted the release.

“This channel partner agreement is significant not only because Watertech of America will be recommending Badger Meter products, but also because it demonstrates the power of Water Council companies working together and supporting one another,” said Richard A. Meeusen, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Badger Meter, and co-chair of The Water Council. “For both of our companies, conservation is the ultimate priority. Badger Meter helps companies and municipalities to conserve water through monitoring and measuring, while Watertech offers innovative water management programs built to maintain more efficient systems that use less water, less chemicals, and ultimately, less energy.”
