Sep 10, 2004
Reptron Electronics, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: RPRN) announced that its Hibbing, MN facility has been awarded a multi-million dollar production contract from Hunt Technologies, Inc., a leading global provider of automatic meter reading products.
Reptron will build RF-based electronic sub-assemblies for Minnesota-based Hunt's Multi-Utility Turtle® system, which uses a utility's existing power lines to transmit and collect daily usage, leak detection and tamper detection data from electric, gas and water meters.
"This new program with Hunt builds upon the successful manufacturing partnership Reptron has enjoyed with Hunt and could significantly increase our level of business conducted with them," said Charlie Crep, Reptron Manufacturing Services' vice president of operations. "We have been providing Hunt Technologies with an array of devices supporting their various automatic meter reading product lines since 1998," Crep said. Production on the new program will begin this fall.
