HAMILTON, NJ – The Northeast Spa & Pool Association (NESPA) has recently named its winners for the Awards of Excellence Service Competition. Local company, Ultimate In Pool Care, Inc.of Bay Shore, NY has been awarded the Gold Medal for their exemplary customer service and customer relations.

This year fifty-seven (57) companies submitted two-hundred entries between the Builders Competition and the Service Competition. The numbers of companies entering is up from the recent years indicating the pool and spa industry is started to see a turnaround from the “Great Recession.”

Each company was judged by their customers, who were asked to rate the customer service they received over the last year. The companies were judged on six categories of service which included response time, service performance for repairs, employee appearance and attitude, recommendations and overall performance.

“Hearing directly from the customers, we learned first-hand that our members are committed to providing the highest level of customer service day in and day out,” said Bob Blanda, President of NESPA.
