Chris Brink, CEO of HASA, stated, “We are thrilled to announce HASA’s expansion into these professional-grade specialty products, which the industry increasingly recognizes as critical to maintain safe, clean and clear water in swimming pools and spas. With HASA’s capabilities and resources — plus Orenda’s top-notch team and market-facing partners — we will, together, provide significant value to pool professionals, residential and commercial pool customers and our channel partners.”
Harold Evans, chairman & CEO of Orenda, added, “HASA is one of the premier brands in the industry. We could not have found a better partner for our customers, whom we value deeply. We are excited to have this partnership with HASA, which will significantly enhance the value that our customers receive through additional services and products offered. I also look forward to joining the HASA team in an executive advisory role.”
Jarred Morgan, president of Orenda, will continue to lead the Orenda business under HASA ownership. Mr. Morgan noted, “We are very proud of the brand we have built based upon great products, great people and high industry credibility. We look forward to continuing to deliver industry-leading service to our customers and supporting the next phase of growth for the combined organization.”
