Aquatronica, the Italian based maker of aquarium controllers is now an independent company. That is according to reports from one of the new owners Massimo Brandi and Massimiliano Belluzzi, who reported earlier in the year they were looking at separating from their larger parent company AEB Technologies who makes automotive products. Working under a larger company has its pros and cons with a large budget to work with but more politics and bureaucracy in the form of red tape. In the end the two gentlemen decided it best to form their own independent company so the work of Aquatronica and their products could continue.
The company is expected to hit the North American market heavily as it is a key area for intense growth. We covered earlier their release of their new touch controller unit that was the first major product in years released to hobbyists worldwide. Since that time we have not heard much from Aquatronica but the occasional rumor or two. The new company was official founded February 28th 2014.
