Scotland, UK-based Ace Aquatec appoints first distributor in Asia Pacific
Ace Aquatec, an aquaculture tech specialist based in Dundee, Scotland, the United Kingdom, has appointed its first distributor in the Asia Pacific region as part of its growth plans.
The newly formed partnership will see Australian equipment supplier Fresh by Design supply the company's gear to its customers across Australia and New Zealand. This will include equipment for salmon, prawn and smolt stunning.
Ace Aquatec's in-water electrical stunner is said to have a proven track record in improving fish welfare and reducing stress at harvest.
With a team of experienced aquaculture professionals, Fresh by Design will be offering "comprehensive and diverse consultancy" to fish farmers looking to adopt higher welfare standards and trialing the products.
Tara McGregor-Woodhams, Ace Aquatec's chief sales and marketing officer, said: "Our electrical stunners have already gained a lot of attraction in the Asia Pacific region as the discussion around ethical farming continues to be a key topic for many supermarkets, producers and end consumers.
"We've seen a ton of demand for our salmon, prawn and smolt stunners in the last 12 months so we're very excited to partner with Fresh by Design who are well regarded and positioned to roll out and service our leading-edge technology in the region."
Fresh By Design general manager Lachlan Bassett added: "We're looking forward to representing Ace Aquatec in our region where we have a long and successful history of providing system design and high-quality equipment to our customers."
Over the last few years, Ace Aquatec has become a global technology provider with offices in the UK, Norway, North America and Chile.
