Founded in 1988 by Andrew Maggion, Merlin Industries, Inc. started small and over the years grew into the industry leader we are today. Our goal at the time was to produce swimming pool safety covers with the highest standards of quality, fit and performance while providing excellence in delivery, communication, and customer service. Since then, Merlin has continued to be a pioneer in new products and services.
Over the years, Merlin Industries has continued to collaborate with dealers and distributors in the design of new products and services offered. We now have the most extensive offering of material types available in the safety cover market today as well as a diverse collection of vinyl liner patterns to fit any backyard.
Today, Merlin Industries, Inc. is considered one of the premier manufacturers in the industry. We currently manufacture our products from two facilities; in Hamilton, NJ, and Deer Park, NY. We have come a long way since 1988 through innovation and hard work. We recognize that our dealers and their customers have ever-changing needs and expectations of service. Merlin works hard every day not to just meet our customer’s expectations, but to exceed them. It is our number one goal to enjoy the jobs that we have, the people that we work with, and the customers that make it possible for us to be the premier safety cover, vinyl liner, and spa cover manufacturer in the United States.
Thank you for your interest in our products and our history. We look forward to making a product for you and your family!
Reducing waste, increasing our recycling efforts and generating our own power - at Merlin we are focused on reducing our companies impact on our environment. We are proud to call ourselves an Environmentally Conscious Organization which is why we named our green initiative ECO for short.
In the past 5 years, Merlin Industries, Inc. has reduced our landfill impact by over 80%.* By initiating recycling programs throughout our offices and our plant, Merlin currently recycles items such as office paper and bottles and cans as well as raw material waste such as vinyl liner scraps, safety cover material scrap, cardboard, pallets and EPS foam scraps from our spa covers. Although all of our products are made with 100% virgin materials for a top-quality product, our waste materials are recycled for use in other industries.
In 2022, Merlin Industries started carrying ReNew vinyl liners, the first and only sustainably made, high-performance pool film. Merlin Industries also partnered with our supplier of Renew on the ReNew Champions Program. This program allows local dealers to bring used liners to Merlin Industries and recycle them which gives them new life in products outside of the pool industry such as roofing material.
Merlin Industries also partnered with 4Ocean in 2022. We pledged to remove 25,000 lbs of trash out of our rivers and oceans. We also started a program allowing our dealers to join us in hopes of doubling our pledge for next year.
At Merlin, we are proud to announce the completion of our conversion to renewable power at our Hamilton, NJ Corporate Headquarters. The installation of our Photovoltaic Array was completed in December of 2009 by The Solar Center from Rockaway, NJ.
The system which is designed to handle all of our office and manufacturing plant's electrical needs on a daily basis, consists of over 1400 solar panels! It takes up 75% of our 100,000 square foot building!
