Hayward chooses its business partners carefully. More than just partnering with recognizable brands, we do business with suppliers who continually invest in their product categories through ongoing research and development to ensure that their products take advantage of advances in manufacturing, technology, and building science. Most of our partners have worked with us for many years and are financially stable. These long-term partnerships help Hayward to get exceptional service and highly competitive prices. In addition, our suppliers typically invest significantly in local inventory, allowing for rapid product delivery. Together with our partners we are committed to meeting the needs of our customers.
