SeaStar Solutions acquired BluSkies International LLC, a St. Charles, Ill., manufacturer of marine diurnal systems and portable fuel tanks.

“Fuel systems are an integral part of powerboats, and SeaStar is committed more than ever to bringing the same level of product performance and service that our customers always expect from us. BluSkies will remain in St. Charles and will continue to serve customers with the same commitment that they expect out of BluSkies and SeaStar Solutions. As members of the SeaStar family, BluSkies can now leverage all the resources that SeaStar has available to it.”
