Brown Deer-based Badger Meter Inc. plans to move about 35 jobs from Arizona to Racine by March of next year, according to the company’s top executive.
Rich Meeusen, Badger Meter chairman, president and chief executive officer, told BizTimes the company informed employees last month it would be closing its Scottsdale, Arizona facility and moving the work to its Racine operations. Badger Meter has a 134,400-square-foot facility in Racine.
The 32,000-square-foot Arizona facility houses both manufacturing and offices. Meeusen said it focuses on manufacturing turbine meters and the work involves precision machining and advanced assembly. He added the facility has a National Institute of Standards and Technology certified lab that will also be moved to Racine.
