[img:cameron%20o%20reilly.thumbnail.jpg|Cameron O’Reilly, CEO, Landis+Gyr]Zug, Switzerland --- (METERING.COM) --- May 22, 2008 - Bayard Group Pty Ltd. has announced that it is uniting its family of technology companies under one global brand, Landis+Gyr, to create a new leader in energy management.
In terms of the announcement, Bayard Group itself will be renamed Landis+Gyr Holdings and its subsidiaries Landis+Gyr, Cellnet+Hunt, Ampy Metering, Ampy+Email and Enermet, will adopt the Landis+Gyr name, synonymous with technological innovation in energy measurement for more than a century, as their exclusive operating brand.
The new Landis+Gyr comprises over 5,000 employees and operations in 30 countries across five continents.

And it must be supported by sophisticated, technologically-advanced management systems critical to meeting energy demand while reducing cost and improving the environment.
Lafayette, IN, USA --- (METERING.COM) --- July 24, 2006 – Canada’s trade measurement regulator Measurement Canada has today granted accreditation to Landis+Gyr for verification of electricity meters throughout the territory.
The accreditation allows Landis+Gyr to audit, verify and seal meters, including its single phase electromechanical MX meters, single phase electronic FOCUS meters and electronic energy and demand polyphase S4/S4e meters, on behalf of Measurement Canada at the company’s Reynosa, Mexico plant. Landis+Gyr has further secured approval for its meter platforms, Advanced Data Infrastructure AMR/AMI endpoints and several of its manufacturing processes.

The smart metering solution comprises the DC450 data concentrator, E450 smart meter, P350 in-home display and L550 remote load switch set. The data concentrator, smart meter and in-home displays have been successfully deployed in numerous smart metering rollouts around the world. However, the remote load switch has been specifically engineered by Landis+Gyr’s South African R&D team to meet the demand side management needs of South African metros and municipalities. In South Africa the meter is typically installed outside in a street side meter kiosk. This type of installation environment requires the use of a two-way solution with the technological intelligence the L550 offers.
Jerry Figurilli recently assumed the position of Chief Operating Officer at Landis + Gyr, Inc. with responsibility for manufacturing, engineering, quality assurance, finance, information technology, marketing and human resources across the company’s North American operations in Lafayette, Indiana and Reynosa, Mexico.
