GWF and HydroVision join forces

GWF MessSysteme AG with headquarters in Lucerne, Switzerland is a global technology leader for meter registers and flow meters and an established player for smart metering devices and applications. With its 200 employees and 120 years of experience, the company has been providing solutions in the utility and building technologies industry. As of April 2018, the company took over core assets of HydroVision GmbH, a technology leader in ultrasonic flow measure- ment. Thereby, GWF has extended its offering to acoustic flow measurements for hydropower plants, rivers, as well as irrigation, fresh and waste water applications. Paired with its existing experience in manufacturing and R&D, GWF is now able to provide cutting edge solutions to additional market segments.

Water management is a global challenge and we are proud to be on the forefront of providing leading technologies in this field. As GWF we will continue to invest in acoustic flow measurement technologies and extend the existing pro- duction facilities and product portfolio. This will strengthen our positioning as a technology company.
