POOLCORP has acquired the operating assets of Recreation Supply Company — a wholesale distributor of commercial swimming pool products operating three distribution centers in Bismarck, North Dakota; Bourbon, Missouri and North Haven, Connecticut.
“For over 40 years, Recreation Supply Company has been a leading distributor of commercial swimming pool products and supplies to contractors, municipalities and commercial pool facilities throughout the Midwest and broader U.S. pool market,” says Peter D. Arvan, POOLCORP president and CEO. “We are pleased with adding Recreation Supply Company to the POOLCORP network and expanding our service to the growing commercial swimming pool market.”
Pool Corporation is the world’s largest wholesale distributor of swimming pools and related backyard products. POOLCORP operates approximately 425 sales centers in North America, Europe and Australia, through which it distributes more than 200,000 national brand and private label products to roughly 125,000 wholesale customers.
“We sincerely appreciate the loyal support from our many customers, vendors and dedicated employees over the years,” says Curly Haugland, Recreation Supply Company founder and CEO. “We look forward to working closely with POOLCORP’s commercial products team to ensure a smooth transition.”
