Our Team

Keith Richardson, President. Keith works from NCAquatics HQ in Toronto ON.

While spending his youth keeping water in swimming pools, and out of sailboats, Keith completed a degree in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics from UofT. After several years of service, repair and technical sales in the municipal pool business, Keith founded NCAquatics in 1998. The goal then, as now, has been to provide reliable, safe systems for the construction, renovation and operation of public pool facilities. Our focus is on delivering excellent solutions, with the best life-cycle or full-life costs, that are easy to live with for facility operators, management and that please the swimmers of Canada. That these systems are also the most energy efficient solutions has been of increasing importance in recent years.

Keith has been involved in over 500 public pool construction and renovation projects across North America, and has built a team that can help you achieve your goals effectively, safely and reliably.
