Xylem’s Sensus business currently employs 684 people in North Carolina.
Sensus has various operations in the Raleigh-Durham area, including a headquarters office, research and development operations and a manufacturing facility. Sensus is consolidating its footprint in the area and acquiring space to accommodate growing operations and new jobs.
