Zodiac Pool Systems has acquired SAVI Pool and Spa Lighting.

The deal between the Vista, Calif.-based manufacturer and Next Step Products, LLC, parent company of SAVI, expands Zodiac's portfolio of lighting systems which already includes products from Jandy Pro Series.

Zodiac recognizes SAVI as a pioneer of nicheless pool lighting technology.

"It has a wealth of intellectual property and 15 years of experience in developing an innovative product," Troy Franzen, managing director - Americas, for Zodiac Pool Systems, stated in a press release

Zodiac will continue to operate SAVI as a standalone business. SAVI's previous owner, Mark Masterman, will remain with Zodiac as the director and general manager of the SAVI line of products. Aligning with Zodiac "provides us the ability to introduce the SAVI lights to the entire swimming pool market worldwide in a very short time," Masterman stated, "which is something we never could have accomplished as an independent company."

The company will continue to operate from its Orlando, Fla. facility.
