Cookston said one of their swimming pools will be featured in an upcoming episode of “This Old House” in Ohio in June. He explained the advantage of the shipping containers that are converted into swimming pools is that they can remain above ground. Winkler said the company will be creating three new jobs immediately with an additional six or seven employees in a year.
Trek Pools is leasing space from Ertle Enterprises in the former General Motors Plant 16 near the intersection of Jefferson and East 22nd streets. Greg Winkler, executive director of the Anderson Economic Development Department, said Trek Pools converts shipping containers into fully equipped swimming pools.
Joel Cookston of Trek Pools said the company has been in business for approximately three years and got the idea from an Australian company. The grants are being funded through the city’s share of the local food and beverage tax.
He said the Anderson property is four times the size of the Indianapolis facility and the company anticipates 20% growth in 2021. “This will be our home for a long time,” Kelly said. Paul Kelly of Maxiforce said the company has been in business for 26 years and was leasing space in Indianapolis for the past eight years.
Winkler said initially the company is creating six jobs with plans to add six additional positions in one year. MaxiForce Diesel Engine Parts is relocating from Indianapolis and has purchased the former Tetrasolv building in the 1400 block of Abraham Drive.
