The Pool and Spa News (PSN) “2018 Top 50 Builders list” has been released. To demonstrate, every year PSN ranks pool builders by five fundamental categories. With revenue at the helm, the subcategories also include industry involvement, web presence, community involvement and staff management. In the sixteenth annual top builder report, we achieved the highest placement of a Massachusetts Pool Builder, setting a series of personal bests while maintaining our status as the pool leader of the New England region.
SSG Pools was #14 in the nationwide ranking, our highest placement in company history. Most notably, we remain the first-place builder in New England. Within the subcategories, we placed 9th in both staff management and industry involvement.
The criteria for the staff management evaluation are based on the average tenure of a company’s staff and its level of training/education. SSG has a unique business model of eliminating subcontractors, having solely in-house operations. This requires our training process to be thorough. The combined experienced of our 170 employees totals well over 1,500 years of experience as a Massachusetts Pool Builder.
Also, in regard to industry involvement, PSN judges companies on their membership with industry and non-industry business associations. SSG invests in American Concrete Institute, Association of Pool and Spa Professionals and National Plasterers Council. Our Vice President, Mason Guarino, sits on the Board of Directors for the American Shotcrete Association. Outside of the industry, SSG is a proud member of the Better Business Bureau and is recognizable for their contribution to “Best of Boston” homes.
