Pamplona portfolio company makes strategic investment

Pamplona Capital Management portfolio company Latham Pool Products (Latham) has made a strategic investment in Narellan Pools, a pool supply company in Australia and New Zealand. 

Pamplona Capital Management invested in Latham alongside former majority owner Wynnchurch Capital in December 2018. 
Narellan Pools is known for manufacturing in-ground glass-fibre swimming pools. The company began as a small family business 45 years ago and has grown to become a global enterprise spanning multiple services, including marketing, manufacturing, and franchising.
Latham President and CEO Scott Rajeski says: “Expanding our industry-leading position to both ends of the globe ensures a strong and stable future for our company, our employees, our supplier partners and, most importantly, our loyal and devoted customers.”
Narellan is known for its continuous commitment to developing innovative products and manufacturing technologies. Their best-in-class marketing capabilities, including effective social media strategies, have fueled strong growth by tapping into today’s mobile media savvy customers.
“They build great products and sell them to loyal and satisfied customers – a perfect match for Latham,” says Rajeski. “Being able to add Chris and his dedicated team to Latham was key to getting this strategic partnership formed. He brings an unbelievable passion for service and growth.”
Chris Meyer, Narellan Pools Group Managing Director, says: “We’ve built our success on the fundamentals of delivering superior quality products at all times, operating with integrity and respect, and providing professional advice and personalised service. Scott and the Latham family share these same traits, making our partnership a natural and seamless progression of our business goals.”
