Company makes Otterbine aerator
A manufacturer of aeration and fountain systems, Barebo Inc., celebrates its 30th anniversary of incorporation.
Purchased from Rodale Resources and incorporated in 1980 by Chuck and Terry Barebo, the Otterbine aerator was originally invented in 1952 by Dick Ott and was primarily used in the wastewater and aquaculture markets. The Barebos pursued the untapped potential for the product in the golf, commercial and residential markets.
The company said the Barebo family tradition and commitment of providing quality products has strengthened over the years as the second generation of Barebos evolved into the business; and, combined with the alliances created within the industry, has allowed Otterbine to flourish over two decades.
“We pride ourselves for delivering the highest quality, efficient and most reliable products to market, and we support this with the industry’s strongest warranties,” said Carla Ott, president of Barebo Inc. “Our success has come from our devotion to serving the needs of our business partners, customers and the environment; and we continually invest in the research and development of providing the most effective and natural solutions to improving water quality so it can be enjoyed for generations to come.”
