Aqua Lung announced this week that it would begin shipping dive instrumentation gear made by new acquisition Pelagic Pressure Systems to retailers in 2016.
Pelagic Pressure Systems, which Aqua Lung recently bought, brings “a new core competency to our existing development and manufacturing base,” according to Don Rockwell, CEO of Aqua Lung International. “We look forward to serving the diving community by providing a range of high quality, innovative instruments to enhance their diving experience.”
The news comes on the heels of Aqua Lung and Suunto announcing last month the ending of their distribution cooperation agreement for the USA and other countries effective December 31 of this year.
“After many successful years together our strategies had evolved differently and we both felt it is best to go separate ways. We would like to thank Aqua Lung for the long history of successful cooperation,” Suunto CEO Mikko Moilanen said on July 20.
Aqua Lung said this week that the company would share further details of its new assortment with its dealer network in the fall of 2015.
Aqua Lung also said it would continue taking orders and supplying current Suunto diving products, along with handling warranty and customer service support through the end of 2015 in the countries Aqua Lung distributes Suunto dive products.
