Zeagle Systems of Zephyrhills, Florida, mostly know for their fine line of very customizable BCDs recently acquired Pinnacle Aquatics of Livermore, CA, known for their line of very well constructed wet and drysuits (many with Merino wool linings). Current dealers for either will now have an easier path to carrying the other brand.
Harry Truitt, owner of Lighhouse Diving in Seattle said he has not noticed any changes yet. He also said that he does not have much room for more product lines, but he is hopeful that the acquisition will allow him to better server his customers.
Dennis Bulin, president and founder of Zeagle Systems said that one of the great benefits to both Zeagle and Pinnacle customers will be faster shipping from their now bi-coastal facilities. They also hope to infuse Pinnacle Aquatics with the Zeagle customer service model.
