After over 30 years of service to Diehl Metering, Jean-François Marguet will take a well-deserved retirement.

In 2004, he became President of the Diehl Metering S.A.S business unit in Saint-Louis, France, before being appointed head of product management, sales and marketing as a Member of the Division Board. One of his most significant achievements was helping to realign the Diehl Metering division and laying down the foundations for successfully marketing and selling new business models.
