Perma built the fiberglass market in Indianapolis starting in 1987; Long term relationship with Viking. Perma has more experience building fiberglass pools than any of its competitors and has evolved its processes as it has discovered better ways to do things. We maintain a 15 year relationship with Viking Pools because of their professionalism and unsurpassed quality, including their unique ceramic core construction for unsurpassed strength, and their unique Crystite and Diamond Series finishes. Perma is large enough to provide an array of core competencies while small enough to provide a personal touch. We are 25 employees strong during the season.
Viking Pools is the most stable manufacturer in what is otherwise an uncertain pool world. Viking Pools not only survived the recession but has thrived. With signifigant financial support from its parent company, Latham International, Viking has been purchasing fiberglass pool lines and plants from its competitors making Viking the dominant player in the fiberglass pool industry bar none. For our customers, this means stability. Add in Perma Pools' culture of quality, craftsmanship and seeking customer satisfaction and you have a combination that's hard to beat. Our pricing is competitive, not always the loweset, but we do not compromise real quality to achieve minor cost savings.
