T-H Marine Supplies, Inc. announces the acquisition of the assets of HydroWave, LLC.

T-H Marine Supplies, Inc., of Huntsville, Alabama, announces the acquisition of the assets of HydroWave, LLC of Carrollton, Texas. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. HydroWave designs, manufactures, and sells a patented line of marine sound technology devices that attract fish for anglers.
T-H Marine’s president, Jeff Huntley, stated “We are very pleased to announce the acquisition of the HydroWave assets. We are also proud that we will retain several key HydroWave employees and have entered into a multi-year consulting agreement with HydroWave founder, Gene Eisenmann. Gene and his team have built a strong company with an excellent reputation for providing cutting edge technology to help make fishing more rewarding for anglers of any skill level. These products really work and we are excited about adding this great brand to the T-H Marine product line.”
Gene Eisenmann, founder and president of HydroWave stated, “Growing HydroWave over the last four years has been an exciting adventure. I can’t imagine the dynamic growth it will achieve tied in with an industry leader such as T-H Marine. I’m also looking forward to a continued role in new product development.”
Huntley also said, “We are excited to announce that Kevin VanDam, one of the owners of HydroWave, and one of the top anglers in the world, is maintaining an interest in the brand and staying involved with product development and promotion. We love that KVD believes in us and the HydroWave brand.”
Kevin VanDam said the following about the acquisition, “I have been with HydroWave as an owner from the beginning. I believe in and use the product. I am excited that a super company like T-H Marine has bought HydroWave. T-H is a true leader in innovation of new products for serious fisherman. I have used and believed in T-H products for many, many years and they are literally on my boat from trolling motor to transom. We have already made plans for me to stay very involved with the brand and to work with T-H Marine to help more anglers catch fish with our sound technology.”
Huntley said that the HydroWave assets and people are relocating to T-H Marine headquarters in Huntsville, AL, where all future assembly and shipping of the product will occur. There will be no disruption to HydroWave customers or suppliers, just more access to the products through more outlets than ever. Within one week of this closing, HydroWave will be fully functioning as a brand at T-H Marine.
T-H Marine’s Huntley also stated, “T-H Marine continues to seek quality brands and products to add to our portfolio. This is our third company acquisition in the past three years along with many product license acquisitions. We have awesome momentum in bringing exciting and innovative products to market for the boating and fishing consumer. We are not letting that slow down. The acquisition of the HydroWave assets puts us into a new sound technology space that we looking forward to growing.”

I'm curious to see if they change the product over all. Not sure if I'm a believer or not if those systems actually work

congrats! I like Hydrowave, it isn't a work everywhere all the time tool, but those that have used it know how it can get things going.
