Spokane, WA, Jan. 9, 2006 — In its end-of-the-year investment issue,
BusinessWeek Magazine has featured Itron Inc. as a growth company to watch in 2006 for “helping utilities stretch capacity.”
Itron is the only metering technology and software company cited in the article, which focuses on America’s aging infrastructure and the companies that are well positioned for growth as that infrastructure is rebuilt and modernized.
The article ran in the Dec. 26 issue of BusinessWeek.
