Our history can be traced back to 1978 when Plasteral was founded in Polinyà (Barcelona), a company created to manufacture plastic injected parts. Shortly after, it became the first company dedicated exclusively to distribute swimming pool products. Distribution accelerated rapidly across Spain over the following decade, with the creation of Eumawel, Equipool, Materiales de Riego, Surast as well as CTX (chemical product) and Cepex (valves and fittings) in the 1980s.
Plasteral, Eumawel, Equipool, Materiales de Riego and Surast—the five Spanish companies that distributed AstralPool products—merged in 2001 and the company name changed to AstralPool Spain. AstralPool Spain made a series of acquisitions over the years to expand its services and solutions, including the takeover of Ceibsa (which later became Certikin Ibérica) in 2006 and Master Riego en 2007.
In 2009 we became Fluidra Comercial España, the result of the merger of AstralPool España, Cepex Comercial, Master Riego and Certikin/CTX, four major Spanish companies that were leaders in their respective fields: swimming pools, fluid handling, irrigation and chemical products.
To improve our customer service, in 2011 we introduced a new branch concept based on self-service in Sant Boi (Barcelona); following its success, the concept has been expanded throughout Spain and to other countries. The Fluidra group merged with Zodiac® Pool Solutions in 2019, a transaction that became effective in the Spanish market in 2019. We’ve now joined forces to offer you a wider product range, bigger and better than ever before!
