Sylvia Monfort announced: "E Grupa was both a local distributor and a swimming pool builder in Istria, a peninsula located in the north-west of Croatia on the Slovenian border.
As SCP client for over 10 years, we had entered into a partnership agreement with it. It was virtually our official SCP representative with territorial protection in Croatia. The goal was to accompany it and to help at its development; something that the small team in place has done very well.
We reached an agreement for the acquisition of the Company, signed this 12th October, retaining the existing teams, facilities and business.
The name of new company thus created is SCP Adriatica. It will be serving the Croatian market as well as the neighbouring markets a little further east".
Lado Lacen will remain Director of this entity, which willbecome 100% subsidiary of SCP ITALY.

We will have a chance to talk about it again as the next SCP Europe International sales conference (ISC) and ShowCase; the long-awaited event that takes place every 2 years, will be held from 28th to 30th November in Rovinj, the beautiful seaside resort in Istria (Croatia).
Note also that the first evening of the Show Case will be a Croatian evening!
On the last day, SCP Adriatica will be inviting several customers from the area to meet the SCP teams and suppliers during this private show.
SCP Europe is therefore expanding and crossing a new frontier!
SCP Europe is a subsidiary of the POOLCORP Group, world leader in the distribution of products, equipments and materials for swimming pools, wellness, the outdoors and irrigation to professionals.
