Poolwerx Makes Waves Winning Double Gold at Industry Awards

Australia’s leading pool and spa maintenance network, Poolwerx, has been recognised with two awards at the prestigious Swimming Pool and Spa Association (SPASA) Australia National Annual Awards of Excellence for 2023.

Poolwerx Upper North Shore took out the two wins, receiving the coveted award for Best Pool Store and Multi Location Pool store. The accolade follows their regional NSW SPASA award wins for Best Pools Store and Multi-Location Pool Store as well as their recent awards at the Poolwerx Gala Awards in Fiji for NSW Franchise Partner of the Year, Retail Store of the Year, Brand Excellence, Employee of the Yea and Top Sales.

Malcolm Price founded the Upper North Shore franchise just five years ago and has been commended for growing the business into one of Poolwerx’ most successful franchise partners to date, servicing over 450 clients weekly.

The Multi-Location Pool Store category was tightly held by Poolwerx, with Poolwerx Upper North Shore; Poolwerx Morphett Vale, Kings Park and North Brighton; and Poolwerx Albury exclusively securing all three finalist positions.

Poolwerx was nominated for a total of nine national awards across five categories, including Business of the Year, Retails Service Technician, and Single Location Pool Store.

Nic Brill, Poolwerx Chief Executive Officer, congratulated Malcom and all the Poolwerx award nominees, praising the contribution they have made to the brand’s ongoing success.

“We are honoured to be home to such a talented pool of individuals whose dedication, passion, and commitment to excellence continue to set new benchmarks within the industry,” Brill said.

“Malcom’s pioneering work in the retail space has positioned him as a leader in his field and we are thrilled to see these achievements recognised on a national level.

“Our dominance in the multi-location category is a testament to the strength of our franchise partners and the reputation they have fostered as the best, boldest and most reliable in the business.”

Poolwerx was founded in Australia 31 years ago and has since become the world’s largest pool service brand with over 160 retail outlets and 600 mobile vans in 350+ territories across Australia, New Zealand and the United States.
