Avon Park, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/25/2014 -- The Avanti Company, a leading provider of Water Meters and Flow Meter Products, announced an agreement with leading meter box lid manufacturer Nicor Inc. to distribute its Read Rite Polymer Meter Box Lids and AMR/AMI endpoint brackets in Florida and Georgia.
The agreement between the two companies provides for exclusive distribution rights in Florida and rights to sell in the State of Georgia.
This new development will be welcomed news to many of the Avanti Company's customers; utilities that migrate from Direct Read water meter reading to an Automatic Meter Reading System and are often challenged with replacing meter boxes and lids, due to the lids creating a propagation barrier from the radios installed in the meter pits.
The Nicor Engineering Team has spent years developing custom meter box lids and other innovative solutions to make this technology transition simple and less expensive for Utilities. Replacing just the meter box lid or providing simple brackets improves AMR/AMI performance significantly and can save the Utility from having to replace the entire meter box assembly.
Nicor has a National reputation for solving difficult application challenges in the AMR/AMI field, and The Avanti Company has expressed that it is "proud and honored" to represent this Company on an exclusive basis in Florida with resale rights in Georgia.
Customers seeking to replace a metal meter box lid with an AMR-friendly lid, or who have an endpoint mounting challenge, will have the assistance of The Avanti Company and Nicor Inc., both of whom offer considerable experience in flow meter and metering systems. Additionally, customers can now find Nicor Inc. Data Sheets at AvantiCompany.com.
