Haviland Pool and Spa Acquires Arizona Company

Haviland Pr PhotoHaviland Pool and Spa, a respected national leader in the manufacture of pool and spa chemicals, has acquired Blue Excess of Chandler, Ariz. The manufacturing and warehouse facility will become Haviland Pool & Spa Southwest.

“I’m pleased to welcome this Southwest-based business to our Haviland family,” says parent company Haviland Enterprises, Inc. Vice President Sales and Marketing Art Harre. “This acquisition aligns with our strategy to expand Haviland’s capabilities as well as our geographic locations. Ultimately, it will benefit the customer experience.”

HSW will be utilizing its tableting, blending and packaging capabilities to strengthen the processes and products of Haviland’s existing business groups.

Founded by Blaine Mills, Blue Excess has been contracting chemical blends for regional and national pool and spa customers since 2013. Mills will continue managing operations at the Chandler facility.

Haviland Pool and Spa Sales Manager David O’Brien applauds the addition of Mills and his team: “We’re fortunate to have them join us. They are a first-class organization that does things right. Our success has always been rooted in customer service. This move gives us the opportunity to improve on service, delivery and flexibility.”

Mills shares that vision. “We’ve worked with Haviland for a number of years, so we know the quality of the employees and Company. It’s a positive move for everyone,” he says. “And being an employee owned ESOP company means a lot. It means we’re all in this together.”
