Pool Patrol, a leading provider of swimming pool products and services, has acquired PoolWorld (formerly Cayman Pool & Spa), adding further assets to its expanding organization.
The announcement coincides with Pool Patrol’s recent birthday celebrations, marking 20 years of successful business, during which time it has grown from a grassroots initiative, serving customers from a small, rented warehouse, to a well-reputed leader in the industry.
Mike Shield, Pool Patrol’s managing director, commented: ‘Pool Patrol has had a wonderful 20 years in business and is looking forward to taking care of the needs of the former PoolWorld’s customer base. Our aim is to provide them with the very best possible pool care in a thorough and efficient fashion and exceed their expectations.’
dms Organization, the parent company of PoolWorld, was also pleased with the deal, concluding that the move was not only in the best interests of both companies but also for its customers, states a press release.
‘PoolWorld was one of the first dms companies. Since its founding in 1998, we are proud to have built PoolWorld into a successful business with a solid reputation,’ said Don Seymour, president of the business conglomerate dms Organization.
‘A crucial element to dms’ success is that we continue to grow, diversify and acquire new interests. Recently we chose to reduce our exposure in the retail industry and increase our investments in real estate and media. It is with this is mind that we decided to sell our PoolWorld business to Pool Patrol, also a local leader in providing swimming pool products and services.’
‘We’re extremely happy with the transaction with Pool Patrol. We believe it is a tremendous opportunity for both parties and have the utmost confidence that Pool Patrol will continue to provide our clients with the high standard of service they have come to expect. The transaction has gone quickly and smoothly, making it extremely satisfactory for all those involved.’
