Carrying The Torch For Pools In Norfolk And Beyond!


ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND A WILLINGNESS TO GO THE EXTRA MILE HAS LEAD TO MANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR EAST ANGLIAN BASED OLYMPIC SWIMMING POOLS NFK WHO ARE CELEBRATING THEIR 50th ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR


P


eter and Jill Cutting started Olympic Swimming Pools NFK in 1963 and in August, celebrated their 50th anniversary trading as a family run business. Back in 1963, swimming pools were only for the discerning with maybe two or three a year being installed, so Peter continued with the building side of the business along side Olympic Pools. The pools were a slow start but gradually, thanks to word of mouth, they began to build more pools each year and were able to expand the workforce along the way. The building side of the company also developed when the building boom came to a head and that enabled the company to expand again with items, such as plant machinery and vehicles. With both businesses working along side each other, they were able to offer an even better service with everything now being under one division. This was very successful and proved to be a more economic way with their many contracts. The company upgraded their premises when moving to the Riverside Garden Centre at Dereham, Norfolk where they gained a showroom. This enabled them to display outdoor, in-ground and above-ground pools. The move proved to be a complete


success and the footfall of visitors increased dramatically, with many of them going on to become long-standing customers. After 13 successful years, the company moved to their present premises in Rackheath, just outside Norwich.


From garden pools to enclosures, swim spas to saunas and steam, these days Olympic Swimming Pools are able to offer customers everything to enhance the enjoyment of many gardens.


Peter introduced his son Lee into the business from a very young age and after leaving school he joined the family team. Starting at the bottom and working his way up, he was able to learn from the ‘master’ and eventually took over the business from his dad when he retired back in 2011. Lee was able to take the company forward and continue the expansion with plant equipment and the gaining of additional premises, along with a fleet of vehicles. Peter’s wife Jill continues to manage the office side of the business and is often the first person to greet their customers.


Olympic Swimming Pools has become well known for their attention to detail and have received many a recommendation from their


happy customers.


ISPE trained maintenance staff ensure that any of the services the company provide meet current guidelines. With the willingness to go ‘that extra mile’ for their clients and a design team which is ‘second to none’, the company strives to ensure that they meet their clients’ requirements wherever possible. Their success has taken their business throughout Europe, installing both natural and traditional pools as far away as southern Italy. Olympic Swimming Pools have been members of SPATA for over 13 years and have found their membership to be a useful selling tool in reassuring their customers when considering a pool builder. Although the industry has changed considerably over the years, Olympic has continued to maintain its profile in the swimming pool sector. With a very highly trained workforce which is made up of both male and female engineers, along with valet teams, this allows a stress free ‘after care’ service in continuing to keep the clients’ swimming pools looking good!
