Liberty Lake tech firm Itron, Inc. on Wednesday said its third quarter sales and nine-month revenue soared to record levels.
The maker of meters and software for utilities said its quarterly sales were $576 million, compared with $408 million from the third quarter of 2009. Nine-month sales were $1.6 billion, compared to $1.2 billion from the nine months the year before.
