Somewhat sad news from the protein skimmer world, Euro-Reef is shutting its doors.
I just got this sad email (see below) stating that Euro-Reef has decided to cease doing business. However, Reef Dynamics is picking up the pieces somewhat by providing customer support to existing Euro-Reef product owners by handling warranty issues. The email doesn’t state why Euro-Reef is closing, but it does suggest that former owners and employees are separating to create distinct companies. Perhaps a rift between the head hanchos or maybe an effort to bolster sales by changing markets. The details are somewhat scarce for now.
New Year, Big Changes…
After 13 years of business, we at Euro-Reef have decided it’s time for a change.
As of Dec 31st, 2009 Euro-Reef, Inc. will cease doing business.
Former CEO and Vice President Jeff Macaré has started a new company called Reef Dynamics which offers American Made, top of the line protein skimmers. Reef Dynamics only sells to Brick & Mortar Retail Dealers in the US & Canada.. Look HERE to find a dealer near you.
In addition, Reef Dynamics will also provide product support to existing Euro-Reef customers as well as limited warranty support for Euro-Reef products currently under warranty. For more information CLICK HERE.
Visit the new Reef Dynamics support forum at REEFTOOLS.
Former COO and President, Robbert Macaré has started a new company called Nano Reef Systems (new website coming soon at www.nanoreefsystems.com) which offers top of the line Nano Protein Skimmers.
We want to thank all of you who have supported us through the years and we hope you visit our new websites soon. And please, don’t hesitate to drop us a line!
The Euro-Reef Family
Regardless of the reasons, it’s sad to hear that Euro-Reef is moving on. I own some of their skimmers and they are rock solid performers.
