Coverstar™ Canada History and Information
A note about Coverstar™ Canada & Blue Seas Enterprises Inc.
With more than 58 years of business experience, Blue Seas Enterprises Inc. was originally established in the spring of 2004 in response to the growing demand for swimming pool safety products within the Canadian swimming pool market. In 2006 Blue Seas Enterprises Inc. made the decision to align it's Automatic Safety Cover division with Coverstar™ Inc. and license the name Coverstar™ Canada. Due to the quality of products produced, we strategically made the decision to stay aligned with the Coverstar™ brand of swimming pool safety covers and continued our commitment to license the name Coverstar™ Canada when Coverstar™ Inc. was purchased by Latham Pool Products™ in 2006. Since this time, Coverstar™ Canada has stayed a completely Canadian owned company, strategically positioning ourselves as a leader in swimming pool safety products throughout our country. We have continually been committed to improving and expanding our operations and service to our Canadian customers coast to coast.
In 2010 we expanded our Western Canadian operations, doubling our Western Canadian office and warehouse space in order to provide more "on hand" products, as well as faster service and installation times for our customers. Our BC office provides exceptional sales, service and installation support for our Western Canadian builders.
In 2013 our company once again expanded on warehouse capacity at our Ontario operation, almost tripling our office and warehouse space in Vaughan, ON. This has allowed us to provide the largest "on hand" automatic safety cover product offering in Canada. Our Ontario location also provides our customers with our own exceptional Coverstar™ Canada sales, service and installation team to meet the growing demand for our products in Ontario.
In 2014 we once again doubled our warehouse capacity in Western Canada to triple our "on hand" stock and deliver even more efficient and faster delivery of automatic safe cover products to our customers.
In 2015 our company established a new warehouse location for the Quebec market, in Terrebonne, QC. With this location we are able to provide "on hand" automatic safety cover products for the first time to Quebec builders and dealers, as well as, providing our own Coverstar™ Canada seasonal in-field sales, service and installation support.
Aligned with Coverstar™ Inc. since our inception, and a member of the Pool and Hot Tub Council of Canada, we strive to bring our Canadian customers the most superior engineered products, excellence in customer service and satisfaction, and integrity in all levels of our business.

A note about Latham Pool Products:
Initially, growth was through the expansion of the retail pool business and Pacific Pools became one of the largest pool builders in the country with locations in Syracuse, NY, Hartford, CT, Providence, RI, Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA.
During the 1960's, Pacific Pools entered the manufacturing side of the business to develop new products to best meet the needs of consumers.
The business was sold to Cookson Group PLC in 1989 along with Latham Pool Products™ Splash Canada, originally founded in 1981 as Technican Industries. The company was reacquired by Mark Laven in 2001 along with a private equity group.
Since that time under Mark Laven's leadership, the company has strengthened its industry leadership position by acquiring Triac Pool Products in 2002; Kafko Manufacturing with locations in the U.S. and Canada in 2003; Fort Wayne Pools in 2004; Viking Pools (fiberglass) in 2005; and Coverstar, LLC (automatic pool covers) in 2006. In 2010, Viking Pools acquired Blue Hawaiian Pools (fiberglass) and Trilogy Pools (fiberglass); in 2012 Viking acquired Royal Fiberglass Pools, Inc.
As the company flourished, the Latham family of brands has become recognized throughout the world as the largest manufacturer of swimming pool components and pool accessories. Its broad product line now includes in-ground and above ground vinyl liners, polymer and steel pool wall systems, fiberglass pools, steps, ladders, pool safety covers and auto covers, spillover spas and a variety of other pool related products.
