National Pool Partners’ Patriot Pool & Spa Lands on Inc. 5000 List

Patriot recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. for the 4th straight year

August 23, 2021 — National Pool Partners, the nation’s largest multi-regional pool service company, today announced that Patriot Pool & Spa, its regional swimming pool service brand in Austin, Texas, has made Inc. 5000’s prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. A renowned brand that’s consistently on the top of swimming pool industry lists, Patriot Pool & Spa partnered with National Pool Partners in January 2021 to further accelerate its rapid growth while elevating its customer and employee experiences.


NPP is a purpose-driven company focused on elevating the pool industry to the benefit of pool service companies and their customers. Its network of regional brands includes the top pool service companies in the country, including Patriot Pool & Spa.


“We partner with our pool service companies and apply our expertise, capital and industry knowledge to help them grow and expand,” said Augusto Titarelli, CEO of National Pool Partners. “We are actively adding to our roster of top-tier pool companies and plan to see more NPP companies on this list in the years ahead. Our model creates greater opportunity in the pool service industry, expands desirable career paths and improves quality of life for founders and everyone in the pool industry.”


Patriot Pool & Spa was founded by Hal Denbar in 2006 and grew to become an industry leader servicing residential pools across the Greater Austin market. Recognized by PoolPro Magazine as one of the Top 30 Under 40 in the swimming pool industry, Denbar led Patriot Pool & Spa to a 20 percent annual growth rate through a commitment to uncompromising, high-quality service to customers. In January 2021, Patriot joined National Pool Partners to help elevate the pool service industry and build a prestigious national pool service brand.


“After years of growing my company, I made the decision to have Patriot Pool & Spa join NPP so that I could continue working in the industry I love and grow the business I’ve built while also benefiting my customers and employees,” said Denbar, now National Pool Partners’ regional president. “I’m proud that Patriot made this year’s Inc. 5000 fastest growing companies list, but more than anything we’re focused on further accelerating that growth for Patriot as well as all of our other regional brands.”


The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.


Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges.


“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
