This year, Concord Pools and Spas is turning 50 – a golden anniversary full of giveaways, fun days, and a grand opening.
“It’s really an exciting time at Concord,” said owner Jon Foshee.
Serving the community for half a century is an impressive achievement, and one that Foshee, who was Vice President of Sales for Latham, The Pool Company before purchasing Concord in February 2020, is dedicated to building upon.
“We’re going to continue building on the foundation of excellent customer service that Concord was founded on. We will continue to offer the products and services that enhance what we can do in our backyards, while always searching out new ways to do that better,” he said.
DIPPING INTO DISTRIBUTION
Concord Pools and Spas swims ahead of the current.
In 2020, the pandemic led more people to invest in backyard stay-cations with all the amenities. Demand pulled back some in 2021 but was still was well above average, said Foshee.
To prevent supply chain issues in 2022 (and beyond), Concord dove into construction on an 8,500 sq. ft. distribution center located next to their showroom on Old Sparrowbush Road in Latham.
Scheduled to open in June, it will warehouse a large supply of fiberglass pools, spas, covers, plumbing parts, and landscape elements including lighting, grills, fire pits and more.
PLUNGING INTO THE PRESENT
So much has changed since Concord started in the 1970’s, and one of the biggest has been technology.
Today, Concord Pools and Spas makes maintenance a breeze by connecting it to your phone. With just a few clicks, you can monitor chemical levels and prevent water evaporation, keep the pool cleaner, and safer, with an automatic pool cover (Concord is an authorized distributor of Coverstar automatic covers in the NY, VT, and NJ area).
“It checks all the boxes,” said Foshee.
Or, they’ll do the maintenance when you sign up for Concord’s Spa Valet program.
Either way, when you go out to enjoy your backyard, it’s going to be ready for you.
FUN ANNIVERSARY EXTRAS
Concord Pools and Spas kicked-off their 50-year anniversary with a $5,000 Big Green Egg Grill giveaway in January. This spring, an indoor golf tournament is scheduled, and on April 8th – 10th is a huge outdoor showcase in Latham.
