Aquatics wholesaler J&K Aquatics is distributing a range of products from Evolution Aqua.

Based in North Petherton, Somerset, J&K Aquatics has teamed up with the award-winning manufacturer to offer products including PURE, EazyPod, evoUV and Detox dechlorinators to its network of aquatic stores across the UK.

The company was formed in 1984 by Paul and Judy James. Over the years, J&K Aquatics has grown to become one of the UK’s largest wholesalers of aquatic dry goods and live fish, reptiles and amphibians. In 2013, it moved to a 2.3-acre site with a purpose-built warehouse, fish-house and office.

J&K joins other Evolution Aqua distributors Rosewood, Oasis, Grange, ITC Aquatics and ALF.

J&K’s managing director Paul James said: “We always look to give our regular customers access to good products, and I know that EA is regarded by many in the UK as a strong brand. We look forward to seeing how our sales develop.”

Evolution Aqua said it was pleased to be working with the well-established, progressive distributor to provide ‘even wider availability and promotion of its products’.

Evolution Aqua was set up in 2001 and offered The Answer koi filter. Today it exports its products to more than 50 countries and launched its latest filter, the EazyPod Automatic, in May.

The company employs 45 people and manufactures most of its products at its factory in Wigan, in the north-west of England.
