UHE FOUNDATION MANIFESTO / 1995
The establishment of the swimming pool business in Turkey began in the 1970’s and developed rapidly during the 80’s according to the growth of tourism and environmental problems, such as sea pollution.
As owners of companies working in areas like swimming pool, fountain, whirlpool, sauna and spa, we decided to establish an organization about this young and promising business in order to have a stronger position in the future economy of Turkey.
The first step to establish UHE was a meeting on 26.01.1995 with the theme “The problems of our sector” and after a dynamic preparation period, on 20.04.1995, the official application to state authorities for UHE has done with signatures of 19 co-founder companies.
Our goal is to support the development of swimming pool and spa business in Turkey and protect the rights of the manufacturers, contractors and the customers.
We believe that UHE will be an important and leading institution in this area and will make its partners proud.
From UHE’s – Ulusal Havuz Enstitüsü ( National Swimming Pool Institute) foundation on, people or companies that want to be a member have to sign the covenant which is stated below;
