Charlie & Justin Magro started Local Pools & Spas in Smeaton Grange in 1998.Together with over 42 years combined experience in the Swimming Pool Industry from Manufacturing to Supply and Installation of Fiberglas Swimming Pools. Upon starting Local Pools & Spas Charlie & Justin had a vision to Manufacture Fibreglass Swimming Pools. Being July and knowing summer was around the corner, Charlie & Justin looked to out source a Fibreglass Manufacture to supply them with a product that would be reputable, reliable and could guarantee great service.
Charlie being in the Industry for a long time knew Ian Mewett, Compass Pools and arranged a meeting. From that meeting Charlie & Justin both know it was going to be the start of something special.
We set up an office on Smeaton Grange Road, in a Site Office with the intention to build an office and Display Centre where people could come and see what they were buying. We purchased a few Pool Shells from Compass Pools and lined them up the driveway so that our potential customers could see some different shapes, designs and colours.
Charlie was our Construction Manager / Sales Consultant and Justin was the Excavation & Installation Manager. Charlie & Justin both worked in the office & on site where they were needed at the time. Michelle joined her father & brother as the Office Manager and Customer Service Contact for Local Pools & Spas. In 1999 Renee (Justin’s Girlfriend) joined the Business and worked Saturdays and Sundays in our Display Centre.
In 2000 we moved into our new Office and factory and started to plan our Display Centre.
Our Display Centre started Construction in 2001 which consisted of 4 Pool & a Spa all in our
Bi-luminite Range. It was completed in 2003 and we won 3 Awards Including Best Display Centre in Sydney / Illawarra, NSW and Runners up in Australia.
In 2002 Justin married the love of his life and Renee started working full time in the Family Business and with training experience Renee became Office Manager in 2005.
2008 Justin decided with Shapes, colours and style changes it was time to revamp our Display Centre with the vision of the WOW factor. We removed 3 Pools & the spa and replaced the Pools with only 2 Pools. We went on to win GOLD GOLD GOLD Best Display Centre in Sydney / Illawarra, NSW and Australia.
In 2010 Justin then again decided to once again expand our Display Centre to have 5 Pools & Spas with the vision to continue the WOW factor. As you can see from our Photos and our Awards of our Display Centre, we pride ourselves on quality and are working hard as a family business to put the quality & service into your backyard.
