Deal Flash

SIT S.p.A. has completed the acquisition of Janz-Contagem e Gestão de Fluídos S.A. (Janz), a consolidated Portuguese player specializing in the manufacture of residential water meters.


The water metering market is expected to grow considerably in the coming years. The scarcity of water is highlighting the industry and its ability to increase efficiency and safeguard the resource.
