Pool Spa News is the swimming pool industry’s source for media and information. Each year, their editors release a coveted list of the Top 50 Pool Builders. In the 2019 edition, SSG Pools was yet again ranked the #1 pool builder among contractors in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont and Rhode Island.

While the pool and spa industry may seem niche, this year’s top 50 builders reported collective annual revenues of over $1.4 billion in 2018. SSG received a #25 listing nationwide, competing with firms in warmer, year-round climates such as Texas, Arizona and California. In fact, SSG was among only 2 companies selected from the northern half of the New England region.

Many challenges are presented to pool builders. The industry faces a growing labor shortage, rising cost of materials and increased regulations. Despite all of these factors being noted, 58% of this year’s Top 50 class recognized weather conditions (snow and rain) as the biggest impediment to their business.

Which region of the country is impacted by this challenge the most? You guessed it, New England! Our team is proud to have recorded another successful year, especially with these circumstances. To see some of last year’s projects, head over to our newly updated photo gallery!
