In May this week, Mayfair Pools celebrates 40 years in the swimming pool industry.
The Mayfair Pools system was invented in the Hawke’s Bay by the Atkins brothers, a contract for building a swimming pool lead the Hawkes Bay brothers to develop a revolutionary system for making fibreglass swimming pools.
The success of the company began with television coverage of a commercial swimming pool they built in Hastings, once word spread the company expanded nationwide very quickly making necessary to license the Mayfair Pools system throughout New Zealand and Australia.
In 1974 Mayfair Pools were awarded patents for their swimming pool system for both New Zealand and Australia.
Mayfair Pools system was invented from an offshoot from the manufacturers of the world’s largest one piece fibreglass moulded caravan (which are known as Concord Caravans); Mayfair first started pre-moulded swimming pools in their factory but soon discovered so many disadvantages with this system which led them to invent the most successful current Mayfair system.
“We are proud of what has been achieved in marking this mile stone and excited for all of the Mayfair Pools Agents” says Keith Atkins, owner and President of Mayfair Pools.
Today the company has agencies throughout most of New Zealand and is one of the largest swimming pool builders in New Zealand and still builds swimming pools throughout the south pacific.
The company which holds an annual agency conference each year will announce this year’s most prestigious pool of the year awards in Napier this week.
