Aquatherm Industries has released a 6-minute video showing a behind-the-scenes look at our entire manufacturing process.
The video takes viewers from “pellets to pallets,” with a step-by-step walkthrough of how our NSF-listed solar pool heaters are made. From taking in precompounded polypropylene resin pellets (the material used to make the solar collectors); to our multiple thermoplastic extrusion lines; to the final assembly and quality control testing of collectors, we want to show the world why it we’ve come to be known as “The Most Trusted Name in Solar Pool Heating.”
In 2005, Aquatherm’s Lakewood, NJ manufacturing facility doubled in size following a 25,000 square foot expansion. In 2011, Aquatherm Industries, Inc. became an ISO 9001:2008 registered company, and is still currently the only U.S. solar collector manufacturer to meet the standards of the world-renowned quality management system. We currently manufacture seven of the industry’s leading brands of solar pool heating systems—including its three “flagship” collectors: Ultrasun, Ecosun, and Solar Industries—as well as a number of private-label collectors.
Dave Sizelove, CEO and Co-founder of Aquatherm, believes the video speaks volumes to the focus on quality and attention to detail throughout the entire manufacturing process. “We have some customers, Dealers who have installed our systems for upwards of 20 years, who had never seen all the effort we put into supplying them with a quality product. It’s fantastic to be able to give them a behind-the-scenes look at the work we do every day.”
“In the beginning, we had planned to keep the video within our close network of Dealers and Distributors,” says Sizelove. “But, as we moved forward with the project, we made a conscious decision to go public. Now, pool owners who are looking to heat with solar can see for themselves the quality and workmanship that goes into each and every one of our solar pool heaters.”
