ABOUT IWAKI AQUATIC

Iwaki Aquatic was established as a division of Iwaki America in 2016 to support the aquatic research community. Iwaki Aquatic’s mission is to build quality aquatic research systems that are extremely reliable and easy to both use and maintain. Our 60+ years of experience in designing and building controllers and pumps for global water treatment applications position us as the leader in both technology and value. Our aquatic team consists of aquaculture specialists, biologists, engineers and customer service experts with many years of experience supporting aquatic research systems. Our standard aquaria rack systems are designed specifically for the African Clawed Frog Xenopus spp. and Zebrafish Danio rerio, but over the years our experts have designed and built custom systems for over 150 different aquatic organisms. No project is too big or too small. Please contact us today to start your project.

Iwaki Aquatic is opening a new production and warehouse facility in the fall of 2018 next to its main office in Holliston, MA. This 18,000 sq. ft. facility will allow Iwaki Aquatic to expand its aquatic supplies business by being able to purchase in bulk and provide very competitive pricing for all of your aquatic needs. 2019 will bring the release of our new Iwaki Aquatic Global Zebrafish System as well as the launch of our ecommerce website. Stay tuned!
