Haviland Pool and Spa has acquired Blue Excess, in Chandler, Ariz.
Blue Excess has been contracting chemical blends for regional and national pool and spa customers since 2013. Founder Blaine Mills will continue managing operations at the Chandler facility.
The manufacturing and warehouse facility will become Haviland Pool & Spa Southwest (HSW).
HSW will use its tableting, blending, and packaging capabilities to strengthen the processes and products of Haviland’s existing business groups.
“I’m pleased to welcome this southwest-based business to our Haviland family,” said Haviland Enterprises Inc.’s (parent company of Haviland Pool) vice-president of 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.”
Mills adds: “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.”
