Blue Thumb Distributing, Inc. proudly announces the acquisition of Aqua Bella Designs. Aqua Bella is a manufacturer of custom, one-of-a-kind fountains supplying the water garden, pond and lake, and lawn and garden marketplaces. The combination of Aqua Bella’s and Blue Thumb’s complimentary brands, will enable Blue Thumb to offer all markets the most comprehensive lineup of water feature equipment & supply solutions in the industry from a single source.
Blue Thumb is widely known in the water feature industry for their extensive line of professional PondBuilder equipment and other products focused on helping the landscape installer and retailer be more successful promoting and selling water features. Kip Northrup, President of Blue Thumb noted, “The synergies between the two long time leaders in the industry open a wide range of new possibilities for the growth of Blue Thumb and offers our customer base a larger, more diversified product offering. Our seasoned team at Blue Thumb, combined with years of market experience, translate to a better customer experience, stronger product offerings and increased quality, and we are very excited about that.”
Aqua Bella Designs pioneered the fountain industry when it first featured its patented design for disappearing fountains using its AquaBox in 2006 and has long been revered as one of the most installation-friendly, highest quality brands in the water garden market today. Olga Sokolova of Aqua Bella says, “We are thrilled with Blue Thumb acquiring the Aqua Bella brand. We see endless possibilities to the market potential that now exists for our product lines. More importantly we believe we will be able to service our customers better with a stronger infrastructure and forward-thinking management that Blue Thumb provides.”
Blue Thumb is committed to a seamless transition. Holding true to their core principles of performance, simplicity and value, Blue Thumb is in the process of moving all inventories from Aqua Bella to their main shipping warehouse in Saginaw, Michigan. The ability to ship Aqua Bella fountains together with pond kits, pond-less waterfall kits, and other water feature equipment will provide an overall lower delivered cost for customers and an expedited and efficient ordering process.
