Blue Thumb acquires Bacti-Twist

November 9, 2018 -  By

Blue Thumb, a water feature supplier headquartered in Saginaw, Mich., acquired Bacti-Twist, a manufacturer of filtration media supplying the water garden and aquaculture industries in Frankfort, Ky. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Bacti-Twist introduced its products more than 25 years ago.

“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,” said Kip Northrup, president of Blue Thumb. “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.”

Blue Thumb is in the process of moving all production and inventories from Bacti-Twist to its corporate headquarters. 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, said the company.
