Outstanding Achievement Award Winners Announced

NESPA is excited to name the winners of the 2018 Outstanding Achievement Awards – Builders and Service Competition. The award winners were celebrated at a reception held at The Pool & Spa Show in Atlantic City this past January.  

Special recognition was given to the Judge’s Choice Best of Competition Award Winner – Swimming Pools by Jack Anthony, Patchogue, NY. This award is presented to the company whose project received the highest overall score in the Building Competition.  Once again, this year attendees at The Outstanding Achievement Awards Celebration selected a People’s Choice Best of Competition Awardee for 2018. This year Mill Bergen Pool Center, Brooklyn, NY received this distinguished honor. 

Gold Medal Winners of the Service Competition include Aqua Pool & Patio, Inc. (East Windsor, CT), DS Pool Service (Royersford, PA), Integrity Pool & Spa (Lanoka Harbor, NJ), Shore Thing Pools & Spas (Barnegat, NJ), Spring & Summer Activities (Hampton Bays, NY) and Ultimate in Pool Care (Deer Park, NY).

The 2018 Competition featured over four dozen companies submitting nearly two-hundred entries between the Builders Competition and the Service Competition resulting in 102 awards being given across both competitions’ categories.  Competition was once again high as these awards continue to be viewed within the industry as a benchmark of professional achievement.  

“The caliber of this competition continues to grow each year and it’s always exciting to see new companies stepping up to share their work,” said Barry Kenny, President of the Northeast Spa & Pool Association.  “From the top of the line building projects to the tremendous feedback our service companies receive, this awards program is a chance to put a spotlight on the great work done by our members.”

The Outstanding Achievement - Builders Competition recognizes NESPA members whose installation of pools, spas, hot tubs and water features represent the best examples of the industry’s products.  The Outstanding Achievement - Service Competition recognizes NESPA members whose quality of service and repairs is also paired with a high level of customer service.

Details about the 2019 Awards Competition will be announced this spring.
