Published on November 1, 2018

Blue Thumb proudly announces the acquisition of Bacti-Twist. Bacti-Twist is a manufacturer of filtration media supplying the water garden and aquaculture industries. The addition of Bacti-Twist to Blue Thumb’s complimentary brands, will enable Blue Thumb to offer all markets the most comprehensive lineup of professional-grade water feature equipment 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 that, “We’ve been purchasing Bacti-Twist products for many years now and when Rick contacted me about the possibility of acquiring the market-leading Bacti-Twist line we didn’t hesitate. 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.”

Bacti-Twist pioneered the manufacturing of biological media when it first introduced its products more than 25 years ago and has long been revered as the leader in bio-media category for the water garden market. Rick Barker of Bacti-Twist says, “We are thrilled with Blue Thumb acquiring the Bacti-Twist brand. We see endless possibilities to the market potential that now exists for our product line. 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 production & inventories from Bacti-Twist to their corporate headquarters in Saginaw, Michigan. The ability to ship Bacti-Twist media together with pond kits, pond-less waterfall kits, and other fountain equipment will provide an overall lower delivered cost for customers and an expedited and efficient ordering process.
