History - A&G Concrete Pools
Create Custom Pools in Stuart, FL
Like many great American companies, A&G Concrete Pools, Inc., started in a garage.
Founder Arthur H. "Art" Allen grew up in the pool business, learning each step in the building process firsthand. He designed, excavated, formed steel, shot gunite (type of concrete) and set up equipment, becoming an expert at a young age. Even more importantly, he saw how meaningful the pools were to the customers, recognizing that for many, a pool would be one of the most significant purchases of their lifetime, second only to their homes; and like a home, the pool was the culmination of a dream, which could bring great joy to the lives of the purchasers, their families and friends. He also saw how disreputable contractors could turn those same dreams into nightmares. Art felt a special sense of obligation to help people succeed in bringing their dreams to life, to get what they paid for and knew that he had found his calling. Believing that he could build the highest quality pools and deliver the best service to provide an unmatched experience and value, Art went into business for himself, starting A&G in his garage in 1987, and has never looked back.
Today, A&G Concrete Pools is recognized as an award-winning leader in the residential and commercial pool industry. It has grown from Art and an assistant to a company of 70 full time employees based at a corporate headquarters and showroom located on three acres in St. Lucie County. In 2000, Art hired a promising salesman, Travis Leonard, who also worked his way through each step of the pool building process to join Art as partner in 2009. Travis shares Art’s calling to the business and is dedicated to maintaining and enhancing A&G’s commitment to excellence, integrity and service. Travis is now responsible for the company’s day to day operations; and, together, Art and Travis lead a team of professionals who are passionate about carrying out A&G’s Vision & Mission and living by its Core Values, which remain true to Art’s original inspiration—helping people bring their dreams to life by building the highest quality pools and delivering the best service.
