PETALING JAYA: George Kent (Malaysia) Bhd, via its wholly owned subsidiary George Kent International Pte Ltd, has entered into a long-term licence agreement with Honeywell to bolster its water meter production business.

According to the group’s filing with Bursa Malaysia, the agreement includes the technology and know-how to manufacture high-precision water meter measuring components for the V100 and V110 C-Class volumetric water meters. It also includes the transfer of associated machinery and tools.
