EcoTech Marine - Revolutionary Technology for Aquariums

EcoTech Marine and AquaIllumination Join Forces

Today is an exciting day for EcoTech Marine, as we announce our merger with AquaIllumination (C2 Development, Inc.) Even more meaningful is what this news means for you, our customers, the most important part of our business. Our partnership with AquaIllumination will provide endless opportunities for development and innovation beyond what we already provide, while staying true to you, our partners from the beginning.

Since our start more than a decade ago, we’ve valued our customers’ support above all else. We intend to remain true to that ideal, as does AquaIllumination. Each brand will remain a separate entity and continue to manufacture distinct product lines, but the shared ownership will allow each of us to improve and grow.

We share many core values with AquaIllumination, including a customer-focused business model, highly advanced technology and a commitment to American manufacturing. Because of our similar interests, this partnership will create economies of scale in production and greater efficiencies in all business areas. These advancements are intended to serve you, as our combined software and engineering teams will be able to develop more innovative products to fill and exceed every one of your needs. Customers will be the most significant beneficiaries of this merger, as you will receive even better, ever-improving products from the same brands you know and trust.

We’re thrilled to be partnering with AquaIllumination and we look forward to leveraging this new connection while we remain devoted to you, our loyal customers.
