Norwood Aquarium has been appointed as an authorised distributor of the biOrb range of aquarium products.

A spokesman for the aquatics wholesaler said it would be distributing the range nationally using its own fleet of vehicles on a weekly basis.

He added retailers could order in single units as Norwood Aquarium offers a low minimum order.

The OASE Group acquired the assets of Reef One, home of the biOrb range, in January 2016 upon the retirement of Reef One managing director Paul Stevenson.

The OASE Group has its headquarters in Germany. It employs around 750 staff, and is a specialist in water gardens, indoor aquatics, fountain technology and lake management. It acquired EDEN (Italy) in April 2013 and Florida’s Geo Global Partners in 2014.

In December 2017, US private equity firm Argand Partners acquired OASE, with management acquiring a share in the company as part of the transaction.
