Blue Orb was set up in 2011 and became Blue Orb Distribution in 2015 when the previous company was purchased by its current owners.
The company distribute a comprehensive range of high profile brands of diving equipment into the UK and Ireland.
These include everyday products from hoses, cylinders and torches, through specialist areas such as camera equipment and lighting to higher end equipment such as backplates, wings and dive computers.
Brett Thorpe is the Owner and Director of Blue Orb Distribution. He is an experienced instructor in recreational and technical diving who has managed and owned several diving companies covering resort, retail, training and distribution in the UK, Europe and Asia.
He acquired the previous Blue Orb Ltd to allow both smaller and larger retailers to sell premium products and be able to provide customers with access to high end brands at sensible prices.
The company represent over twenty brands in the UK diving market including Analox, and each one of them was chosen for their product innovation, reliability, range and reputation.
They were awarded distribution of Analox’s sport diving analysers in 2016 including the O2EII Pro nitrox analyser and the ATA Pro trimix analyser. They also provide all the cells and accessories for these products.
Matt Lambert, Sales Manager said: “Blue Orb have a great distribution network with both local and high profile retailers which will help support the sale of our scuba diving products and accessories. We previously worked with Brett when he was the owner of another company, so when he set up Blue Orb we were really happy that he remained loyal to us and agreed to distribute our products.”
Brett added: “I have dealt with Analox for many years so it was good to continue our relationship after I launched my new company. Their products are a welcome addition to our range of diving equipment and with the help of my sales team I hope to increase Analox’s presence in the diving marketplace.”
