Company history

In the 1960’s Edward ‘Eddie’ Mann became involved with the swimming pool and leisure industry. Eddie ran the company ‘Swimming Pool Construction’ which was a large commercial pool construction company. The company installed pools around the country with examples being the Isle of Sky Municipal Pool, Eton College, Lady Eleanor Holles School and Shell Oil’s Lensbury Club.

Eddie worked closely with Mike Payne (Mike Payne Pool Supplies) who ran Swimming Pool Filtration Ltd (Swimquip) and Stanwell Filtration Ltd in association with Mike Braid operating from the same premises.

Eddie had always wanted to run his own company, so in 1982 he formed Leisurequip. Early on Leisurequip started as a small local pool company maintaining and building small pools in our local vicinity with his wife as company secretary and son Kenton Mann as a sitting registered director.

In the early 80’s Eddie visited the Leisure Industry Week and Ideal Homes exhibitions as he liked to keep abreast of the latest products and innovations. This is when first contact in the UK was made with Sven-Olof Janson the Founder of Tylö AB Sweden who was looking for companies to import his sauna and steam products to the UK.

Eddie invited Sven over from Sweden where they both discussed business in the garden. A deal was struck to import Tylö products from Sweden. With no emails, computers, mobiles or tablets in those days it was a difficult process of bills of lading, international bank drafts and a telex service bureau in the nearest connected town Farnham.

The then PG Group (Certikin now) and Golden Coast Swimming pools also saw the potential for the expansion of the Tylö range into a blossoming UK wellness market and became appointed importers as well shortly afterwards.

Sadly in 1985 after establishing the Tylö importer status Eddie suffered a heart attack and died a few days later. His eldest son Kenton chose to leave his contracts manager’s career with a Military Term contract construction company and took over the reins Leisurequip.

30+ years in business

30+ years odd later Leisurequip are the leading sauna and steam room company in the UK. Eddies wife Lynda Mann now in her early 70’s still runs the accounts, admin and answers the phones. Leisurequip also was awarded “Tylö’s Most Prestigious Contacts Award 2008” which we still hold today.

PG Group changed to today’s Certikin International – trade supplier of pool and wellness products,  moved away from Tylö when they developed their own range of saunas and steam rooms.

David and Shaun Adams (Father and Son) from Golden Coast had large warehousing and Tylö wanted to streamline the supply chain, so Golden Coast became the sole importer certified Tylö distributor to the UK who holds a large stock of the Tylö products and spares.

Leisurequip now today are the only Tylö Trademark approved dealer-installer in the UK and work closely with Tylö and Golden Coast in promoting expanding the Tylö brand. Leisurequip offer full on-site technical assistance and after sales service to all of our customers.

We continue to develop and keep abreast of latest trends to produce the stunning high quality and inspirational rooms our clients demand.
