Largest pool service company in Arizona celebrates 50 years of growth and innovation
PHOENIX, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Poolman, a pool maintenance and pool remodel company, celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2014. From humble beginnings, Poolman has grown over the past 50 years to be the largest pool service company in Arizona. Today, they also service residential and commercial pools in the states of California and Texas. Poolman is best known for their one-of-a-kind Free Salt System offer and quality customer service.
In 1964, Poolman launched their business like most pool companies – from the back of a station wagon. With a focus on customer service and innovation, they quickly saw growth in a competitive market. After 50 years, they continue to be a Better Business Bureau A+ company.
In 2000, Poolman became a subsidiary of American Pool Enterprises, Inc., which gave them the resources to begin their salt system initiative. Their Free Salt System offer helped customers switch their chlorination systems to salt chlorination. Salt chlorination provides a better swimming experience – like soft skin and no harsh chemical smells – that is also better for the environment. With Poolman, customers no longer needed to invest thousands of dollars to purchase and install a salt system of their own. Poolman has 6,500 pool owners on service and over 5,600 have taken advantage of salt chlorination.
As a company, Poolman hosts an annual employee retreat in Arizona to recognize their accomplishments. At this year's event, they celebrated 50 years as a company with their family of employees.
Mitchell Friedlander, CEO of American Pool Enterprises, Inc., explains, "Poolman has a great company culture, which has been key to their growth and success. We have awarded them Operation of the Year four times. This award recognizes one outstanding business out of our family of 24 companies. This is a testament to Poolman's quality of service and dedicated staff. They truly work as a team to go above and beyond for their customers."
As an active community member, Poolman organizes annual donation drives for charity organizations. Customers are invited to participate by leaving donation items by the pool to be collected by their service technicians. Poolman-supported charity organizations include Toys for Tots, Adopt a Family, Hike for the Homeless and the Sojourner Center. Employees also participate in local blood drives and have organized supply drives for troops overseas.
Fred Wagner, CEO of Poolman shared, "We are so proud that Poolman has reached this huge milestone. We want to thank all of our customers who trust us every day to take care of their swimming pools. We also want to thank all of our employees who have helped make Poolman such a great company. We are looking forward to the future and the next 50 years."
Poolman was founded in 1964, and has 100 employees and 50 years of experience in pool maintenance, repair and remodel. Poolman has become the largest pool maintenance company in Phoenix, Arizona. Poolman services over 7,300 pools in their three locations of Phoenix, Forth Worth and San Diego. Poolman is a wholly owned subsidiary of American Pool Enterprises, Inc.
