Tetra have been innovators in the world of aquatics for over 60 years, and Ellie Goodall has been reading a research survey they have recently published proving that keeping a pet is good for your children.
The Bermuda brand is back! That's the great news GardenSite partner Andrew Hall has received from Bob Meacham, National Accounts Manager for the new owners Evolution Aqua.
Andrew has been doing business with Bob for over the last 25 years, when he was working at Bermuda and turning it into a flourishing company with an outstanding reputation for an impressive range of aquatics products.
He says that 'Many of our customers will be more than happy to see the Bermuda range back on our shelves, as we are still continually asked about their products'.
It was a surprise to everyone when its parent company, Solus Garden & Leisure, went into liquidation in May 2014. The brand was subsequently bought by Scotts, the makers of Miracle-Gro, who have now sold it to Evolution Aqua, an award winning British aquatics company who manufacture world famous filtration products and aquariums.
Their products also include fish food and water treatments, and Bermuda will complete their offering to both the professional and hobbyist market.
Bob told me that Bermuda will operate a separate business and will begin its new life with a core range of popular products that made the brand so popular within the aquatics trade.
Over the years Bob has always had a saying when doing a deal: 'once it's gone it's gone' but on this occasion he has been proved wrong, Bermuda has not gone – it's back!
