National Pool Partners Grows Texas Operations With Two New Acquisitions

Austin-area O’Neill’s Pools and Longhorn Pool Service Join Premier National Service Company

ORLANDO, Fla. (August 31, 2021) – National Pool Partners (NPP), the nation’s premier multi-regional pool service company, today announced that is has acquired O’Neill’s Pools of Lakeway, Texas and Longhorn Pool Service of Austin, Texas to further expand its footprint in the greater Austin area. Both companies will have their employees and customers join Patriot Pool & Spa, NPP’s local Austin brand and Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies honoree. These acquisitions make Patriot Pool & Spa the largest residential pool service brand in the Austin region.

As a purpose-driven company focused on elevating the pool industry, NPP is attracting interest from the top pool service companies in the country whose owners align with NPP’s vision. Neil and Amy Engelmann, the former co-owners that grew O’Neill’s Pools into a Pool & Spa News Top 50 Service company, chose NPP to help accelerate the business’s growth and cultivate fulfilling career opportunities for its staff. Michael and Tamberly Hurosky, former co-founders of Longhorn Pool Service, chose NPP to continue stewarding the legacy they’ve been building for nearly 40 years.

“The operating climate this year has been challenging and we are delighted to be partnering with like-minded operators who found ways to weather through the storm,” said Augusto Titarelli, CEO of National Pool Partners. “By partnering with experienced operators like Neil and Amy, we have the talent needed to support our continued expansion in Austin. Likewise, Michael and Tamberly built Longhorn into a very successful business and we plan to leverage the unique best practices they developed to make all of our companies better together.”

The Engelmann’s will be joining NPP to continue their work in the pool service industry. Amy Engelmann will be leading NPP’s business development initiatives in the state of Texas, helping companies that are looking for additional capital to supercharge their growth. Neil Engelmann will lead Patriot Pool & Spa’s western team as Branch Manager in Lakeway.

“I am excited about this partnership and the new opportunities for growth it presents for both the business and the employees who have grown to be an extension of our family, said Neil Engelmann. “NPP’s support with accounting, human resources and financing will allow our team to be laser focused on providing customers with great quality service.”

“I’ve known Neil and Amy for many years and couldn’t be happier to welcome them to our team,” said NPP’s regional president Hal Denbar. “They provide great service to the Lakeway market and we intend to provide Neil with the resources to accelerate our growth in the area.”

Michael and Tamberly Hurosky sold their pool service and repair business so that they could focus on growing their renovation and construction business. When deciding to sell the service and repair division, the Huroskies wanted to make sure their legacy, people, and customers were in the right hands. Although they had many suitors, Michael Hurosky notes that choosing NPP felt “like a no-brainer” based on its track record of showcasing an unwavering commitment to people and doing what’s best for the customer.
