Press release: Hikari Sales USA
Hikari Sales USA, a leader in the aquatics industry, is proud to support the veteran community with the launch of its new military-themed resin ornaments for fish tanks. The company has pledged to donate 5 percent of the sales from this special series to the Bob Woodruff Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring that American veterans, service members and their families have stable and successful futures long after they return home.
“Hikari Sales USA, Inc. is proud to make a donation of 5 percent of the sales of our military series resins to the Bob Woodruff Foundation to support their efforts to improve the lives of veterans and their families,” said Chris Clevers, president and COO of Hikari Sales USA. “Each year, we choose an organization that we feel best utilizes resources to assist veterans. Veterans have given so much, and we’re proud to be able to give back to them as a thank you for their service to our country!”
Produced under the Aquarium Solutions brand, Hikari’s resin ornaments for both freshwater and saltwater tanks are available in a wide variety of designs, sizes and styles, from small decorative pieces to functional swim-throughs and larger structures that will give any tank an eye-catching pop. The new military-themed ornaments feature patriotic imagery, enabling fishkeeping enthusiasts to beautify their aquatic habitats while also demonstrating support for those who have served. These special products will be sold through independent retailers, some of which may offer them online.
In addition to its collection of resin ornaments, the Hikari brand is globally recognized as the originator of Species Specific and premium aquatic diets. Hikari Sales USA is the United States-based subsidiary of Kyorin Co., Ltd., a renowned Japanese company that draws on nearly 140 years of ornamental fish-breeding experience to produce diets that support the health of pet fish, pond fish and reptiles while also keeping habitats in prime condition.
Established after American journalist Bob Woodruff sustained life-threatening injuries from a roadside bomb while covering the war in Iraq, the Bob Woodruff Foundation seeks to raise awareness about the challenges veterans and military families are facing, and invest in solutions to help support them in the next chapter of their lives.
