Benefits of forging strategic alliances

The two Australian owned and operated companies first collaborated in 2010 when Waterco started distributing Aqua-Quips’ Jet Vac Automatic Pool Cleaner. Since then, they have forged a professional relationship based on a common goal to offer premium products to pool and spa owners.

Waterco group marketing director Bryan Goh says he is thrilled to partner again with a brand synonymous with quality, integrity and reliability.

“Aqua-Quip has been in the Australian pool and spa sector since 1975 and continually refines its products according to market trends, consumer demands and technological advancements,” he says.

Aqua-Quip’s general manager Gary Clark says the company’s relationship with Waterco spans more than two decades and is fuelled by healthy competition – and mutual respect.

“Over the past 25 years, our respective head offices have never been more than a few kilometres apart. Waterco is a highly regarded manufacturer in the Australian pool industry and we are delighted to be able to team up with them and utilise their national distribution channels,” says Clark.
