A Global, Diversified Manufacturing Company
Polygroup® is the world's largest designer and manufacturer of artificial Christmas trees and a leading producer of above-ground swimming pools, summer inflatable toys, shatterproof ornaments, seasonal lighting and air mattresses. Our mission is to provide quality products and services in the most efficient and responsible manner to generate the most value to our customers while remaining committed to the principles of sustainability.
Since our inception over 25 years ago, Polygroup® has continued to expand and offer a wide range of products to meet emerging customer needs. Today, our global network of manufacturing facilities and business operations in China, Europe and the United States has enabled the company to become the market leader in some of the highest growth product categories.
Polygroup® focuses on solutions based on time-tested business practices. The core elements of our business strategy include:
Consistent focus on delivering manufacturing excellence
We recognize that business strategies only work with superior execution, so we work to increase production and efficiency while preserving product quality excellence.
Invest with intelligence and discipline
We look beyond market fluctuations to identify long-term trends that will shape the industry. That is why we are investing in infrastructure in the United States and expanding our production capabilities in China.
Consistent focus on innovation and technology
We understand that new product development and improving existing products through technological innovation is essential to strengthening our industry position.
Leveraging our strengths and benefit from integration
Our scale creates an enormous pool of resources and opportunities to expand into new products and services while creating efficiencies in manufacturing. For example, both Christmas trees and swimming pools utilize the same set of raw materials.
Create a safe workplace and sustainable environment
We strive for an incident-free workplace and a safe environment where nobody gets hurt. We are also committed to sustainability by reducing material usage and developing more-efficient processes that save energy.
Industry Leader, High Standards
At Polygroup®, our mission is to manufacture and deliver products to our clients with the utmost confidence in their quality, performance, design and value. Upholding our business to the highest standards, we strive to ensure the continual satisfaction of our clients by following stringent quality management and operational system controls.
Our quality management systems play an important role by assuring that our company can produce and deliver the quality products and services expected by our customers. This is achieved through a systematic approach of high standards and a focus on improvement. Polygroup® has established measurement systems to assess its progress in continuous quality improvement. Some of the tools used to monitor our manufacturing operations include professional quality control teams, routine organizational audits and self-assessments, customer complaint and resolution systems and stringent product testing. For example, all Quick Set® ring pools are test inflated for 24 hours prior to packing. Currently, all of Polygroup® manufacturing facilities in China are ISO 9001:2000 certified. Our steadfast commitment to continuous improvement has produced excellent results in safety, reliability, and quality.
Our approach is to drive continuous improvements in manufacturing, safety and every aspect of our operations to enhance overall performance. Polygroup® has assembled a balanced product portfolio comprising 5 major categories that are integrated to best utilize our raw materials, workforce and operations. Our large-scale operations and the operational flexibility to reduce manufacturing and material costs provide significant competitive advantages. In addition, we are the most vertically integrated supplier in the industry producing nearly every component that goes into our products. This enables us to better control cost, quality, and the delivery of our products. Vertical integration also means that we can offer enhanced design flexibility and support to our customers. Our focus is to create a lean operation characterized by the efficient use of assets, high inventory turns, excellent supplier management, short cycle times, continuous flow, reduction in costs, and elimination of waste. Through teamwork and awareness, each Polygroup® employee is dedicated to performance excellence in achieving established objectives.
