Beachcomber dealer Mike Harris has been sharing his retirement pearls of wisdom after his Harris Pools of Torquay company celebrated its 30th anniversary during the summer.
The ‘Pearl’ anniversary milestone has been achieved against a backdrop of the worst economic conditions in the UK since the 1930s with an uncompromising attitude to detail, quality and service. This philosophy has seen the company land many industry awards over the years, including the highly coveted SPATA (Swimming Pool & Allied Trades Association) Pool of the Year award in 2012.
Mike originally launched Harris Pools in 1983 from the spare bedroom of his house and it has since grown into one of the most prestigious and respected wet leisure companies in England, operating out of Torbay’s largest pool and hot tub showroom in the Ellacombe area of Torquay.
“A fantastic team of industry-qualified engineers and showroom staff have worked tirelessly to make Harris Pools synonymous with excellence in service and customer care,” declared Mike; “We deliver an attention to detail and a meticulous personal service. Perhaps this is why so much of our work comes to us via referrals.”
The anniversary has coincided with Mike announcing his retirement from the company, which is passing into the hands of current employees Kris German and Glen Gardiner who have developed a new Facebook page and online store to promote their services.
“I am delighted that the business is going forward in the very safe hands of Kris and Glen,” said Mike.
