ApolloPNS Matt crop  Matt CollinsMatt Collins is excited to be in the pool and spa business.  “I don’t know what the economists are saying but, we are doing great! We have experienced continued growth,” he says with a wide grin. Apollo Pools and Spas in Lakeville, Massachusetts, has tripled its sales over the last 6 years and Collins couldn't be more pleased.  

Apollo Pools and Spas has been in business over 12 years, with Collins purchasing and taking the helm 6 years ago.  Having worked in the pool and spa business prior to coming to Apollo, he has a keen sense of the area and the needs of his customers.  “The important thing is to do things the right way,” states Collins. “We’re a full service company.  We’re not the cheapest but, with us you get more bang for your buck!”

Charlie Strong, Regional Sales Manager for Nordic Hot Tubs, agrees stating, “I’ve known Matt for around 8 years now. I’ve watched him grow from working for another company, to buying Apollo, starting out in a little space and growing into a new location with a lot larger place.  He’s in a great spot now!”

Along with the growth of the business, Collins has expanded his staff to a current total of 10 employees. His staff is very knowledgeable and well-versed in the product lines Apollo carries. Collins is proud of them and says, “We sell in-ground and above-ground pools and hot tubs.  We service and sell chemicals and all the accessories that go along with that. They have to know all about everything...and they do!”

Collins states that the recession of '07-'08 hit them hard.  “It was brutal,” he states, shaking his head.  “What carried us through was our service department.  And that’s because of our reputation of quality work.” Strong agrees, “Matt has great customer service both in his sales and service department.  He is very successful with that.  A lot of his business is through word of mouth and referral.”

Apollo Pools and Spas has shown the Nordic line from the start.  Strong states, “Our partnership with Matt and Apollo has been one that is a ‘growing partnership’.  We’ve watched Matt grow and Nordic has grown along with him.”

Nordic Hot Tubs offer some unique features that Collins really enjoys. “The Whirlpool Therapy in Nordic Tubs is like no other,” states Collins. “Another thing is, they are simple and easy to work on.” Collins also likes working with Nordic's personnel. “They do what they say they’re going to do.” 

If Collins could give advice to any other dealer he feels the most important thing is to be honest. "Do what you say you can do. Honesty is the key!”

Apollo Pools and Spas is hosting a Nordic Truckload Sale from Friday through Sunday, September 8 - 10, 2017. Collins and his Sales Team will offer some of the best deals of the year on Nordic Hot Tubs.  Strong will also be on site to assist with sales and answer any questions regarding the Nordic line.  Strong states, “Matt is a dealer who has really grasped the concept of Truckload Sales and advertising. He does this extremely well!”
