McCrometer Acquires Marsh-McBirney Product Lines

McCrometer is acquiring Marsh-McBirney’s popular full pipe Multi-Mag and Flow-System flowmeter product lines, bringing together two of the water industry’s leading suppliers of electromagnetic flow measurement technology.

For more than 34 years, Marsh-McBirney has been highly regarded for its innovative, reliable and accurate flow measuring technologies. The Frederick, Md., based company’s Multi-Mag and Flow System Insertable Averaging Electromagnetic flowmeters are frequently selected for municipal and industrial water and wastewater applications based on their performance, ease-of-use and cost-effectiveness.

“Combining the strengths of Marsh-McBirney’s Multi-Mag and Flow-System products with our own Ultra Mag flowmeters offers our customers an unbeatable combination when it comes to performance, reliability, quality and value. With our strengths in electromagnetic flow sensor technology, manufacturing and distribution, we will be in a unique position to meet the evolving needs of customers in the municipal and industrial water markets,” said Kerry McCall, president of McCrometer.

“We are excited about teaming up with McCrometer,” said Marsh-McBirney CEO/President and Founder Larry Marsh. “Our companies have a similar approach—success through a single-minded commitment to providing superior technologies and service. Combining our forces is an exceptional catalyst for the future growth of our businesses.”

The Marsh-McBirney open channel flowmeter product lines will also complement McCrometer’s sister company, Hach, further enhancing the global technical, business and service capabilities of the product lines of Hach, McCrometer and Marsh-McBirney.
