World leader in inflatable and Rigid-Inflatable Boats, Zodiac Nautic just announced the acquisition of Anonym SUP, a renowned designer and manufacturer of Stand up Paddles based in Hossegor, France.

Zodiac Nautic introduced the Drop Stitch technology in the 90s to create inflatable floors that felt rigid for its boats. Since then, the company has perfected its use of the material and developed a new thermo-bonding technology that made it possible to completely remove the use of glue and solvants in the manufacturing process, thus creating cleaner products. The technical breakthroughs involved can easily be adapted to a large variety of inflatable products dedicated to fun and performance on water.
