More than 65 years ago, Doughboy forever changed outdoor family entertainment with the introduction of the first portable, storable,
above ground swimming pool. Since then, we've earned a worldwide reputation for creating and maintaining the highest standards of
design, engineering and service. Doughboy offers above ground, recessed and lap pools which are sure to match your unique style.
During World War I, Domain Industries, through its packaging machinery operation, perfected rubber sealing and won the Army contract to
seal K-rations. K-rations were a "meal in a can" carried by United States soldiers during battle. During World War I, United States
soldiers were known as Doughboys.
In 1947, Domain Industries formally named their packaging machinery operation the Doughboy Plastics Division. Doughboy Plastics
Division was created specifically to enter the outdoor family entertainment market by manufacturing inflatable splasher pools,
toys, and beach balls. Years later, they changed the name to Doughboy Recreational. Hoffinger Industries purchased Doughboy
Recreational from Domain Industries in 1974. Hoffinger Industries was founded and owned by Marty Hoffinger, who in 1945 invented
one of the first above ground pool filters. In 2012, Hoffinger Industries was acquired by its president, Doug Hollowell.
Doughboy Recreational, a division of Hoffinger Industries, is still in the rubber sealing business. Our Therma-Seal technology
results in a liner seam that is actually stronger than the liner material itself - enabling us to provide a 100% lifetime warranty
against seam failures. We are also the only pool manufacturer in the world that actually makes everything it sells from raw materials.
Our production takes place in our 660,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Arkansas. Here we continually explore new design
concepts and product advances. We start with the basics - the raw materials. Starting with raw materials allows us to monitor
all phases of the production process, assuring everything meets our stringent standards of quality. We produce the finest above
ground pools, filtration systems, skimmers, and related accessories for your investment dollars. Doughboy Recreational is, and
has always been, proud to be made in America!
