In recent years, Sunbather’s strong growth in the eastern states has prompted a concerted push into the trade market in Western Australia, and general manager Tom Boadle says he had been searching for some time for the right partner to take on the Sunbather brand and products.
He has now announced that that search is over and the business formerly known as Deluxe Pool Heating is operating as Sunbather WA, offering the full range of Sunbather products from solar pool heating to automatic pool covers.
Richard Hounslow has been in business with Deluxe Pool Heating for more than six years and has built a strong trade customer base and loyal network among the leading pool builders and pool technicians in WA. Sunbather can now better support his trade base with their 40 years’ experience, engineering support, product support, installation techniques and marketing.
“It will be a very powerful partnership as I can take the experience and expertise that Sunbather has developed and better service the Perth trade with a greater access to new products and the growing commercial sector,” says Hounslow.
Another factor in this move has been the success of Sunbather in the national commercial pool heating and covers market. This has led to a substantial increase in the demand for Sunbather’s solar heating expertise and commercial thermal pool covers in WA, which the new office will be better able to manage.
