Custom Molded Products, LLC (“CMP”), a premier manufacturer of pool, spa and bath components, has acquired ozone sanitizer maker Aqua Sun Ozone, International, Inc. (“ASO”). The California-based company will expand and enhance the CMP product line of water sanitizers for the pool, spa and bath industries.

CMP continues to drive home its commitment to provide innovative solutions for consumers, pool and OEM hot tub professionals with its third acquisition of a premier pool and spa sanitizer company. Founder and president of ASO, Desirée Otero, is excited about the next chapter for the business stating “CMP is great for ASO, and we feel confident they will provide additional opportunities for the brand.” Desirée added, “Their position as a pool and spa industry leader ensures that ASO products will get to the next level.”

ASO is known for products including AquaNova®, an AOP sanitizer designed for spa OEMs that eliminates water-borne contaminants and other by-products commonly found in hot tubs and pools. The AquaNova® has a compact, yet accommodating design that includes a built-in venturi injector, lamp timer, micro-ozone generator and easy bulb change.

CMP growth in the sanitizer category is part of an overall strategy to bring complete and modern solutions to the recreational water industry. “Every day there are more stories about the danger of chlorine-resistant organisms like Cryptosporidium,” states Vic Walker, CMP Product Design and Marketing Manager. “With a better understanding of advanced sanitizer systems and their strengths alongside chlorine and bromine, we can create better ways to keep modern pools and spas healthy and clean.”

As reports of recreational waterborne illness become more prevalent, the push for safe and energy-efficient water treatment in the industry grows. CMP is responding by building a portfolio of brands with effective solutions for safer, cleaner pools and spas. This strategy continues with the addition of ASO. The resulting product synergies create a new leader in recreational water sanitizer systems, and strengthen the CMP presence in the pool and spa industry.
