Kordon 50th Year Anniversary

by Tsing Mui on March 30, 2011 at 12:57 pm


Kordon LLC announces that 2011 marks its 50th Year Anniversary. Premium quality aquarium and pond keeping products have been proudly wearing the Kordon label continuously since 1961. The initial company from which Kordon LLC evolved was formed by biological scientists in the California Academy of Sciences and Steinhart Aquarium in San Francisco, California. Two principals in the new company, Mr. Maurice Rakowicz and Dr. Robert Rofen, recognized the vast benefits of providing fresh brine shrimp to captive fish in public aquariums and research facilities. That initial interest expanded rapidly to include a wide range of aquarium products under the Kordon brand, and small animal products under the Oasis brand.

2008 saw the company’s ownership change as Ed Mowka acquired  Novalek Inc. and the company’s name officially changed to KORDON LLC. Kordon LLC develops, manufactures and markets its products world wide, primarily to wholesale distributors in the U.S. and Canada and to agents/distributors internationally.
