Demand for big public swimming pools, spas and water parks, supressed during the pandemic, has now recovered to levels seen in 2019.

That’s where the FIP range comes to play.

With customers in over 80 countries, FIP is a world leading brand in highly engineered plastic valves and fittings for the global swimming pool market, as well as supplying a host of other industries, from power generation to chemicals, mining, shipping, and agriculture.

And following our acquisition of Lareter in 2022, an Italian pressure pipe maker serving a range of industrial markets including swimming pools, we’ve added another string to our bow.

It means we can bring greater value to our customers as a single supplier of complete high-end solutions, combining FIP’s valves, fittings and instrumentation with Lareter’s pipes.

One Olympic sized pool typically uses hundreds of metres of pipes, over 150 valves, plus instrumentation to control and treat water.

We’re working with some of the biggest names in this sector, including A&T Europe, whose Piscine Castiglione subsidiary is a world leader in supplying Olympic and other large municipal pools.

Now our biggest customer, our relationship goes back to the Rome Olympics in 1994 and we’ve helped equip pools for a range of important world sporting events since.

We are currently developing pools for next year’s Paris Olympics with an eye to creating a legacy for the games when the pools will be opened for public use, for years to come.

We’ve also worked with A&T on a wide range of pool, water park and spa developments, like its Aquamore centres in Verona, Mantova and Bergamo, and the stunning Bormio Terme, thermal spa in Northern Italy.

Increasingly we are seeing a trend towards pools combined with wellness facilities. Sophisticated valves, durable pipes and excellent instrumentation, to control and treat water appropriately, are key to these projects.
