Bailey Meter Is Now Bailey Controls Company
Bailey Meter Company, U.S.A., a Wickliffe, Ohio-based subsidiary of Babcock & Wilcox, has received a new name—Bailey Controls Company.
"Our new name more accurately reflects the true nature of our business today, which is high technology control and instrumentation systems and products for the electric utility, industrial processes and marine industries," said Bailey president Robert J.
In conjunction with its new name, Bailey now becomes a division of Babcock & Wilcox. "This change was necessitated by the recent merger of Babcock & Wilcox and J. Ray McDermott, a New Orleans, La.-based firm which acquired B&W in 1977," Mr. Campbell said.
Bailey was organized in 1916 and became a wholly owned subsidiary of Babcock & Wilcox in 1953.
Bailey also operates facilities in Williamsport, Pa., and Daytona Beach, Fla., and maintains sales and service offices nationwide. Internationally, Bailey operates subsidiaries in Canada, Brazil, Australia, and West Germany, and maintains a joint venture in Japan.
