Rhode Island ALS Chapter Awarded Hayward The Spirit of Lou Gehrig Award

  The Rhode Island ALS Chapter (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) awarded Hayward the Spirit of Lou Gehrig Award which recognizes an individual or group who has demonstrated great compassion and an exceptional commitment to raising ALS awareness.  Hayward also purchased a platinum sponsorship for the awards dinner and donated their TigerShark robotic automatic pool cleaner to be auctioned off during the silent auction. Hayward’s journey with ALS began when one of our key engineers, Doug Sawyer, was diagnosed with ALS many years ago.  During Doug’s progression with ALS, Hayward’s upper and local management made the commitment to help him in any way we could.  This has included providing adaptive equipment and computer software, to leasing him an adaptive mobility vehicle once he needed to rely on a wheel chair.  Due to Hayward’s unwavering commitment, this vital team member continues to be a key contributor to Hayward while his battle with ALS continues. Doug Sawyer said, “I couldn’t be happier to be part of the Hayward team.  Their generous support has allowed me to continue functioning as a productive member of the engineering team, and has given me the ability to live as normal of a life as possible.  My family and I can’t thank them enough.” Hayward’s commitment to protecting all of our employees is company-wide, not just in our RI facility.  We’re honored to be awarded the Spirit of Lou Gehrig Award.  It’s a wonderful cause and we’re happy to be a part of building awareness.

Hayward Named Manufacturing Marvel

Hayward was featured in a segment of “Manufacturing Marvels” aired on the FOX Business Network, Tuesday, May 21 at 8:30- 8:45 PM CDT.  Watch the video. “Manufacturing Marvels” spotlights American manufacturers across a variety of industries.  Marvel Production Group, LLC (MPG) visited Hayward’s Nashville facility to film a segment on the company’s production and manufacturing methods of its technologically-advanced heaters and heat pumps solutions.  MPG highlighted Hayward’s highly-efficient, lean manufacturing process, and its products that are produced in a one-piece flow aligning with customer demands. The Manufacturing Marvels segment highlighting Hayward was produced by award winning producers Bob and Jerry May and narrated by nationally acclaimed voice talent John Criswell. “We are incredibly proud of the advanced manufacturing techniques that we have perfected to create highly-technical, energy-efficient, state of the art pool products,” said Vice President of Global Operations Don Smith.  “Our goal is to help pool owners save on energy costs, spend less time maintaining and more time enjoying their pools.  Hayward’s environmental mission led to the development of our Energy Solutions® line of products, which reduce energy, water and chemical use.  We offer breathtaking, energy-efficient color LED lighting that allows pool owners to create themes for perfect poolside events.  Salt chlorination delivers the ultimate swimming experience that is as easy on the wallet as it is on eyes and skin.  Automatic pool cleaners and controls save money and reduce pool maintenance time.  But the biggest energy saver is with our variable-speed pumps—up to a 90% energy savings.  They also meet the ENERGY STAR® certification requirements recently finalized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  This is the first ENERGY STAR specification for pool pumps established by the EPA, and is part of the program’s overall commitment to help prevent climate change by encouraging superior energy efficiency.  So, when Marvel Production Group approached us about taping at our facility, we thought it was an excellent opportunity to showcase our process, practices and products.” Watch the video.
