Fluidra Celebrates 50 Years
Fluidra, the multinational, Spanish-listed company, has reached a historic milestone as it celebrates its 50th anniversary and a short video celebrating the company's achievements and heritage can be viewed here. Established in 1969 in Barcelona, Spain (by the company´s four founding families), for half a century Fluidra has grown internationally across both the residential and commercial pool and wellness markets.

The company now operates in over 45 countries and owns a portfolio of some of the industry’s most recognized and trusted brands, including Jandy®, AstralPool®, Polaris®, Cepex®, Zodiac®, CTX Professional® and Gre®.

Throughout its history the company has gone through many changes, always continually learning and adapting to the markets´ needs. Following its initial success in Spain, the company saw the huge potential in bringing its products to a wider, international customer base. During the 1970s, the company began its international expansion in France and Italy while the 1980s and 1990s saw the company focus on consolidating its business in Spain and expanding internationally, opening subsidiaries across Europe and the Middle East.

As the company’s global footprint further expanded between 2000 and 2010, Banco Sabadell acquired 20% of the share capital in 2002, entering the Board of Directors. In 2003 the company was responsible for the freestanding Olympic Skypool at the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona for the World Aquatics Championships. In the same year, it also punched Certain International. Four years later, the company went public when Fluidra became listed on the Spanish Stock Exchange.

During the global financial crisis Fluidra restructured its activities in Europe and entered new foreign territories, creating an efficient and agile company. In 2018, a historic milestone in the sector took place when Fluidra merged with Zodiac, enabling the company to offer a wider range of products and solutions than ever to their customer base.

Fluidra´s Executive Chairman Eloi Planes said: "Since our humble beginnings 50 years ago, putting our customer first has been a core value at Fluidra. Our company has grown dramatically over the years, but we remain as committed as ever to this value. We´re proud to be part of this incredible industry which provides happiness and wellbeing to millions and it´s been an honour sharing our journey with all our customers around the world."

Fluidra, together with the pool professionals. has always been committed to creating the perfect pool experience for its end users and looks forward to providing this for generations to come. As Eloi Planes put it: "With a 50 year heritage of excellence, this is just the beginning."
