Multi award-winning Wigan-based manufacturer Evolution Aqua continue its expansion with the purchase of the Bermuda pond equipment brand.

Originally a Solus brand, Bermuda was more recently acquired by Scott’s, owners of Miracle-gro, before being put up for sale as Scott’s concentrates on its core gardening business.

The Bermuda brand joins Evolution Aqua’s existing pond and koi product portfolio, which includes K1 Micro, Nexus, PURE, EazyPod, evoUV, eaProPump, Stop Blanketweed and airpumps.

At a different range and price point, Bermuda will operate as a separate business and complement, not compete with, Evolution Aqua and its specialist koi filtration market.

Bermuda will be available to the much wider gardening and water gardening markets, as well as the whole existing Evolution Aqua dealer network.

Bob Meacham, a 26-year veteran of the water gardening trade, moves with Bermuda brand to Evolution Aqua.

“I could not be more thrilled and excited to be at the helm again of the relaunch of one of the UK’s leading Water Gardening brands,” he said.

“Coupled with the fabulous backing and technical excellence of Evolution Aqua, I feel extremely confident we will again bring to the marketplace, new and innovative selling products in the months and years to come.”
