When Joe and Laura recently relocated Hutchison Fiberglass Pools and Spas to 3100 Long Beach Boulevard in Brant Beach they were unaware it was a bit of LBI history repeating itself. Hutchison, an exclusive dealer of Viking Pools and Spas is now located where the Viking Hotel once stood. “We had no idea,” said Laura. The coincidence was a complete surprise.
Joe and Laura started their family business in 2001 in the playroom of their Barnegat home. “Laura wanted a pool installed in our back yard,” explained Joe. “I told her I could do it.” Their business grew-up around that one installation, with their first contracted installation in Loveladies the following year.
Today their award-winning business has grown to include the talents of the entire Hutchison family – Joe, Laura, Joey, Alyssa, Nicole and Laura’s dad – Al and new to their family Joey’s wife Natalie. Their commitment to providing world class personal customer service and building long-term customer relationships is evident. Hutchison’s ever-expanding customer base continues to be built upon those relationships. “We’ve served some of our clients for over sixteen years”, said Joe. “We value our customers, and we are available year-round to meet every customer’s needs.”
Holding a Class A contractor’s license in addition to being a professional member of The Northeast Spa & Pool Association and having a retail showroom allows Hutchison to meet their client’s every need from design concept and pool installation to lighting, fencing, landscaping and selecting the perfect patio furnishings. “Our goal is to create a personal oasis for each client,” says Joe.
Hutchison’s expansive new showroom in Brant Beach show cases a beautiful array of Viking Pool and Sundance Spa designs as well as state of the art, energy efficient equipment. In today’s energy conscious world, having the right equipment is essential. New technology, innovative user-friendly computer programs and smart phone apps make care and maintenance easier than ever for pool and spa owners. Hutchison Fiberglass Pools and Spas also offers top of the line maintenance chemicals and a variety of other fine products.
