Smart metering technology manufacturer Kamstrup Water Metering, LLC, opened the doors at its new North American headquarters and manufacturing facility in Forsyth County, Georgia, on Thursday.

Based in Denmark with employees in more than 20 countries, Kamstrup is a supplier of intelligent metering solutions and services, working to reduce waste and optimize the production and distribution of clean water and energy. Kamstrup began operating in the United States in 2013. In North America, the company said it is focused on supporting water utilities with ultrasonic metering solutions, network communications, and software applications.

With this move, Kamstrup has grown its North American operations and manufacturing capacity, expanding into a 150,000-square-foot space at Forsyth Commerce Center in Cumming, Georgia.

“Our Georgia address is a key part of our strategy,” said Bruce Bharat, vice president and country manager for Kamstrup. “We considered 13 other cities across the Southeast, but stayed in Atlanta because it makes sense. Atlanta is a global hub for innovation and Kamstrup is a technology-driven company. Our expanded facility matches our commitment to bringing our customers the industry’s most advanced and reliable water metering solutions. We’re proud to commit to the future of the Atlanta region and we’re glad to bring more manufacturing to the region.”

In business for more than 70 years, Kamstrup’s product line includes residential, commercial and industrial meters featuring solid-state, ultrasonic technology and software designed to analyse data and digitize water utility operations. U.S. customers include utilities in El Paso, TX; Jackson, MS; Madison County, AL; and Greer, SC.

“I’m so excited about Kamstrup. We continue to work tirelessly to make sure that we have a great business environment,” Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp said at the ribbon cutting ceremony. “I just want to again thank Søren [Kvorning, Kamstrup CEO] for their confidence in the state of Georgia and Forsyth County and for believing in this business environment, in this local community. And just want to wish Bruce and the rest of the local team, your customers and suppliers that are all here today, the best. As I told Søren and the ambassador [of Denmark], it doesn’t matter to us where a company is headquartered, whether it’s around the United States or the world. If they have a facility that is in our state, we’re going to treat them like a Georgia-based company. And that is what we’re going to do not only today but also as you grow into the future.”

Kamstrup worked with JLL Executive Vice President Joey Kline on the lease.

“As Kamstrup continues its global expansion, finding a facility capable of supporting its growth trajectory was crucial,” stated JLL’s Kline. “The new location acts as their North America headquarters, strategically chosen in the metro Atlanta area for its diverse talent, efficient transportation and cost-effective operations. Kamstrup’s 15-year commitment to Forsyth Commerce Center, increasing its industrial footprint to over four times its previous capacity, underscores the company’s strong dedication to this region.”
