Blue Thumb Acquires LiquidArt
Blue Thumb has acquired LiquidArt Fountains, a manufacturer of custom, one-of-a-kind fountain boulders supplying the water garden and lawn and garden marketplaces. The addition of LiquidArt to Blue Thumb’s complementary brands, will enable Blue Thumb to offer all markets the most comprehensive lineup of professional-grade fountains from a single source.
Kip Northrup, president of Blue Thumb noted that, “The synergies between the two long time leaders in the industry open a wide range of new possibilities for the growth of Blue Thumb and offers our customer base a larger, more diversified product offering. Our seasoned team at Blue Thumb, combined with years of market experience, translate to a better customer experience, stronger product offerings and increased quality, and we are very excited about that.”
Steve Stamback of LiquidArt says, “We are thrilled with Blue Thumb acquiring the LiquidArt brand. We see endless possibilities to the market potential that now exists for our product lines. More importantly we believe we will be able to service our customers better with a stronger infrastructure and forward-thinking management that Blue Thumb provides.”
Blue Thumb is in the process of moving all production & inventories from LiquidArt to its corporate headquarters in Saginaw, Michigan. The ability to ship LiquidArt fountains together with pond kits, pond-less waterfall kits, and other fountain equipment will provide an overall lower delivered cost for customers and an expedited and efficient ordering process.
