Pool Systems Maintains Growth Momentum with Acquisition of Pool Power
Pool Systems Pty Ltd (Pool Systems) is pleased to announce the acquisition of Pool Power, an Adelaide based distributor of pool products, with effect from 1 February 2018. The acquisition continues Pool Systems’ strategic growth in the wholesale distribution of pool supplies in Australia, and will provide Pool Systems with direct access to the SA market through the acquisition of the leading independent distributor in that state.
Pool Power will supplement Pool Systems’ expanding branch footprint in Australia, and provide a broader range of products to pool retail, service and construction customers in South Australia and Northern Territory. Pool Systems has been a key supplier to Pool Power for many years; this enables a clean handover and no interruption to Pool Power customers. The acquisition will enable Pool Systems to deal with Pool Power customers directly, providing benefits for customers and suppliers.
Mark Gregerson, founder and owner of Pool Power, will remain with the business for a transitional period before retiring. There will be no foreseeable change for customers, who will continue to deal with the same friendly faces at Pool Power. “After three decades establishing Pool Power, I am very pleased to establish this legacy for Pool Power with a strong national distributor. I am confident Pool Systems, in conjunction with the wonderful people who run Pool Power, will provide our customers with an increased range of products, providing benefits for our customers, employees and suppliers,” Gregerson commented.
