SOLitude Acquires Leading Freshwater Management Firm in Florida
November 12th, 2019
Two leading freshwater management companies have united under the SOLitude Lake Management® brand. Aquatic Systems, Inc. (ASI) was acquired by SOLitude in January 2019. All company service offerings and infrastructure were officially unified this month.
The rebranding of Aquatic Systems expands SOLitude’s existing operations across 12 Florida offices. Outside of Florida, SOLitude manages aquatic resources in 35 states. SOLitude is the nation’s largest freshwater management firm specializing in sustainable, proactive solutions for communities, golf courses, municipalities, commercial developers and private landowners.
Established in 1977, Aquatic Systems was an industry leading freshwater resource manager in Florida for over four decades. The company provided eco-friendly wetland and preserve management services, shoreline aquascaping and stabilization, water quality restoration, midge fly assessments, research, consulting and more. ASI also possessed three in-house laboratories used to examine water samples, identify algae and aquatic plant species, and diagnose imbalanced water conditions. The labs will continue to be imperative for the development of protocols and standardizations that are adhered to across the aquatic management industry.
SOLitude and the ASI team find common ground in the mission to preserve the natural ecological balance of aquatic ecosystems, better utilize new technologies and cutting-edge solutions, and exceed the expectations of clients. Through the rebranding, SOLitude welcomes 106 experienced professionals to the company’s robust team, which now includes 445 biologists, environmental scientists and other lake management experts.
Former ASI clients should expect to receive the same level of customer service and performance under the SOLitude brand and look forward to leveraging new, innovative service offerings, including premium fisheries management, nanobubble technology, mechanical hydro-raking, and advanced erosion control solutions. Clients will also gain access to SOLitude’s Knowledge Bank, which contains a wealth of informative industry guides, scientific articles, educational webinars, case studies and more.
“We are honored to join forces with one of the most reputable and accomplished freshwater management teams in the country,” said Kevin Tucker, CEO of SOLitude Lake Management. “The scientists at Aquatic Systems are respected across the industry for their extensive knowledge and experience, premium services, and dedication to preserving the health and balance of the environment.”
SOLitude Lake Management continues to expand its ability to provide superior value-added services that enrich lives and protect the environment.
