The Birth of a Great Idea: Fiberglass Lap Pools

Founded by fiberglass pioneer Everett Pearson in 1986, SwimEx is dedicated to building the finest swim spa fitness pools and rehabilitation equipment. We pride ourselves on the quality of our construction, the uniqueness of our aquatic environment, and the high level of personal service we deliver.

Originally recognized for co-founding Pearson Yachts in 1957 and introducing the first fiberglass production sailboat, Pearson bought the SwimEx paddlewheel patents from two MIT engineers who had designed and built their own swim-in-place pool. Their idea: a paddlewheel that draws water off the surface and propels it back into the pool to generate a steady, deep, counter-current.

Pearson married his 30 years of design experience and cutting edge fiberglass expertise with their paddlewheel concept, and the SwimEx brand was born. He successfully evolved the pools into several home swim-spa models with varying sizes and depths. Pearson's vision brought SwimEx into athletic training rooms for professional and college sports teams, hospitals, physical therapy clinics, health clubs and residences. We now offer ten main lines of aquatic therapy pools with almost limitless options for varying therapies.

Still owned and operated by the Pearson family today, SwimEx delivers a suite of versatile engineering masterpieces with a personal touch. We continue to partner and consult with therapists as we respond to patients' needs with new features and models, and to therapists' needs with seminars and in-service training. Each swim spa or aquatic therapy pool we build is an individual experience as we work one on one with you to create the ultimate SwimEx experience for your family or your organization.

Innovations have continued with the more recent development of Pearson Pilings, working out of the SwimEx plant in Fall River, MA. Pearson’s contributions to the fiberglass industry were underscored with his receipt of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Composites Fabricators Association in 2002.
