GT Invest continues its investments in the swimming pools market with Poolspot
GT Invest made its maiden acquisition in the swimming pool market with the takeover of JDS Pools in Maldegem in mid-March 2021. This investment was swiftly followed by a further 3 acquisitions in the swimming pool market: Intrapools, zwembadvoordeel.be and De Zwemwereld. This successful group of industry titans continues under the group name Poolspot and aspires to become the largest and most professional swimming pool group in Flanders.
The swimming pool market has enjoyed exponential growth in recent years. Low interest rates, improved weather conditions, more affordable investment and running costs and an increased demand for luxury home amenities since the start of the pandemic have resulted in a proliferation of swimming pool installation companies, not all of which boast equally professional backgrounds.
