Company’s success credited to tenured employees and industry expertise
18 August 2020 – Waterco (ASX:WAT) has dominated the 2020 SPASA Awards of Excellence by winning five coveted trophies – four Gold and one Silver. The Swimming Pool and Spa Association’s annual event, which recognise the best in the Australian industry, attract entries from every region and showcase achievements in construction, design, manufacturing, supply, products, retail and service.
The awards include:
- Gold – Education & Training Award, WATERCO ADVANCE

- Gold – Salesperson of the Year Award, MAURICE ZOIA, WATERCO SA
- Gold – Employee of the Year Award, MAURICE ZOIA, WATERCO SA

Furthermore, Waterco-owned AutoPool, won Product of the Year and Marketing Campaign of the Year for its Kreepy Krauly RX-Tank Robotic Pool Cleaner.
Waterco group marketing director, Bryan Goh, says he is proud of the company’s employees for continually setting new industry benchmarks in education, training, service and supply.
“Waterco was founded nearly 40 years ago and considers its workforce – many of whom are tenured – as integral to its success,” he explains. “We are always thrilled to see their hard work and product know-how acknowledged by the industry.”
SPASA COO Spiros Dassakis believes the successful haul is a clear reflection of Waterco’s company culture.
“While all companies have their own systems and processes, it’s ultimately up to the individual to execute them,” he says. “Some do it poorly while others go out of their way to protect the company they represent. The latter is clearly the case at Waterco.”
