America’s Swimming Pool Company opens locally



FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – America’s Swimming Pool Company (ASP), a nationally recognized pool service company, is open for business in Fredericksburg, Virginia. ASP provides swimming pool maintenance and cleaning programs, pool equipment diagnostics, pool repairs, pool supplies, and pool renovations in Fredericksburg and the surrounding areas. Tom Nelson is the owner and operator of this location.

“We are proud to have Tom as a new business owner,” said Stewart C. Vernon, Founder and CEO of America’s Swimming Pool Company. “The Fredericksburg location is sure to succeed with Tom’s work ethic and vision for success.”

Nelson was born in Maryland and raised in Indiana. He currently resides in Stafford, Virginia with his wife Lisa, and they have three children. Nelson has a background in mechanical engineering and has studied business education, but most of all, he is proud to say that he is a 26-year veteran of the United States Marine Corps.

“I enjoyed my time in the Marine Corps, both flying helicopters, and staff assignments during the later years of my career,” said Nelson. “After my retirement from the Marine Corps, I realized right now is a good time to build a business.”

Nelson spent a lot of time researching business opportunities ranging from home inspection to fast food service. He learned about ASP – America’s Swimming Pool Company from James King, the owner of ASP in Springfield, Virginia. King is a friend of Nelson from their service together in the Marine Corps. Nelson already dove into the pool business experience prior to coming to the ASP corporate location in Macon, Georgia, for his two-weeks of training. Nelson visited King’s location in Springfield and John Inglett’s location in Warrenton, Virginia, to get a basic understanding of the business.

“I strive on making my customer service in the pool industry comparable with completing a mission in the military,” said Nelson. “I do not stop until the job the is done right and all expectations are met.”
