By Mike Allen Wednesday, June 4, 2014

San Diego-based Zodiac Pool Systems said it acquired the assets of Next Step Products LLC, specifically the SAVI Pool and Spa lighting line of products, and will continue to operate the company as a stand-alone business under the same brand.

Terms of the transaction weren’t disclosed.

Zodiac said it acquired SAVI in a move to increase its support for the pool construction and renovation aftermarket. The Next Step’s former owner, Mark Masterman, will join Zodiac as a director and general manager of the SAVI line, with production continuing in Florida.
