For the fourth straight year Diehl Metering attended and exhibited at the AWWA ACE Convention held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (the City of Brotherly Love).
The exhibition brought together Diehl colleagues from Diehl Metering Germany, France and the United States. Mr. Frank Gutzeit, Mr. Jean-Francois Marguet, Mr. Adam Mechel and Mr. Ender Erat among others joined the exhibition team demonstrating Diehl Management's commitment and support for the US market.
Over the three days of the exhibition, Diehl Metering LLC scheduled and organized over 15 meetings, hosted four dinners and had nearly one hundred registered visitors to the booth. The utilities Diehl Metering met with during the show represented both municipal/public utilities and investor owned utilities ranging in size from a few thousand meters to over 3.8 million meters. The US utilities were impressed with Diehl, the HYDRUS meter and Diehl's direction with AMI for the US.
To man the booth, Diehl Metering United States was joined by Diehl Metering Germany colleagues as well as for the first time our US distributors. Delta Engineering (California and mid-Atlantic accounts) and AVR (Texas) each had two representatives at ACE, each "working" alongside Diehl staff in the booth.
Diehl Metering introduced two new meter sizes for the US market, the HYDRUS stainless steel 1 1/2" and 2" meters (US utilities were very impressed with the new meters). Also Diehl LLC introduce two new "movies", one showcasing the Ansbach and Nuremberg state of the art manufacturing facilities and the second, an animated HYDRUS movie describing the HYDRUS functionality and features.
