Automatic Pool Covers Inc. is celebrating 40 years in business in 2019. To celebrate, the company held a party in late February to thank their employees and clients for getting the company to this big anniversary.
“We wouldn’t be here today without our amazing employees and customers, to whom we are all very grateful,” says Michael Shebek, CEO of the company.
Automatic Pool Covers, Inc. opened its doors in 1979 as a small pool cover distributor. Michael Shebek worked side-by-side with his father, Mike Shebek Sr., putting in more than 20,000 hours of time installing and servicing covers himself when he took over as owner of the company in the year 2000. In 2003, the company began manufacturing its first automatic pool covers.
“We decided to manufacture covers because there was a need in the market to create an automatic cover that was designed by installers for installers,” explains Shebek. “We’ve made the commitment to cutting-edge technology and manufacturing processes with a clear focus on excellent customer service.”
The company’s commitment to innovation and fast turnaround times has fueled the company growth and drove the need to recently expand the company’s facility.
“We have experienced exponential growth in the last couple years and therefore needed to expand both our manufacturing and warehousing facilities” says Shebek. “The expansion seemed fitting in the wake of our 40th anniversary.”
The company’s celebration was held at the newly expanded manufacturing facility, complete with a big anniversary cake.
