In 1974 Mr. George Tassone, a pioneer in the swimming pool industry, started "Atreo" pool manufacturing company. "Atreo" was one of the very first swimming pool manufacturing businesses in America. Mr. Tassone's loyal son George Jr., at age 15, was there by his Father’s side attentively watching his Dad’s every move as the early stages of swimming pool history unfolded before his eyes.
While most pool suppliers chose inexpensive imported steel pools, Mr. Tassone was quality-oriented and favored superior quality American made aluminum pools. He is well-known for developing the industries very first above-ground oval swimming pool.
As years went by Mr. Tassone expanded his pool businesses and formed “American Pools & Spas” and then “Poseidon Pools of America” which was listed and publicly traded on Wall Streets "New York Stock Exchange."
Sadly, Mr. Tassone passed away in May 1997. He was a True Legend and the major force in the swimming pool industry. His great accomplishments will live on forever. He is best remembered for his honesty, integrity, and heart of gold.
George Tassone Jr. currently has over 40-years experience in manufacturing various types of swimming pools. He constantly strives to follow in his great Father’s footsteps.
In 2001, Mr. Tassone formed “Pool Factory, Inc.” He is filled with the same hard-working ethics, ingenuity, and pride instilled in him by his Father.
In 2009, Pool Factory, Inc. entered into a joint venture with Wilbar International, Inc., a leading Giant in the swimming pool industry. Mr. Tassone, working together with colleagues from Wilbar, invented the EZ Panel Pool which is now claimed by many to be one of the finest swimming pools ever designed.
In 2016, Mr. Tassone teamed up with Mr. Fred Ford, a talented and skilled Mechanical Engineer and together they established "Playgo Pool Products."
As a result of their creative and mutual cooperation, they have designed and created THE RECTANGLE POOL, a revolutionary above-, semi- & in-ground pool which has many unique features that are superior to other traditional swimming pools.
Playgo Pool Products has started plans to develop other aquatic pool products such as pool decking, pool games, pool toys, portable pool massagers, and trainers and other items soon to be released in the swimming pool industry.
