Morgan took the family way into the pool industry: His then-girlfriend, now-wife’s family owned a pool business, and Morgan worked part-time cleaning pools to make extra money during college. While doing pool startups for a local pool builder, the company stumbled upon Orenda Technologies. Harold Evans, his father in law, started selling Orenda products around 2006, and Evans eventually took over Orenda in 2010, Morgan says. After Morgan graduated in 2010, he shifted from pool service and maintenance to chemical manufacturing full time.
Morgan says he enjoys seeing younger people becoming engaged and involved in the industry and hopes they will carry a passion for this work into the future. “This is a great industry and allows for a lot of freedom and impact,” he says.
