About Dolphin Pacific

Dolphin Pacific was started by me, Adrian, in 2011.

From humble beginnings, a couple of storage units, a single product range and a workshop in the garage at home (and possibly a partridge in a pear tree). Fast forward 10 years later the business has grown to 5 employees, a warehouse in Avondale and contract warehousing providers in Auckland and Christchurch.

World domination? We will leave that to Dr Evil. I left a corporate job after an opportunity fell into my lap. Me and corporates are not besties, and I’d had enough of endless reports and pointless meetings. 
 
We are all about great people, great products and great service. That’s great, isn’t it? We are a diverse bunch that just work really well together, and love what we do. This is what makes the magic happen. Products, we pretty much have it all, great brands that we stand behind and support 100%.
 
There are some things we don’t do – meeting minutes, vegan sausages on the bbq, bad coffee and we certainly don’t own any Milli Vanilli records.
 
Although we are wholesalers of product, we have a wealth of knowledge that we are willing to share with anyone who will listen. We can help you with BBQing, bread making, beer making, car restoration, child rearing, boating, hunting and also Swimming Pool advice.
 
It really is our goal to make your Swimming Pool experience as easy and simple as we possibly can.

Meet the Team

DolphinPacific-Adrian-Hill

Adrian Hill

The founder of Dolphin Pacific, Adrian’s background is in construction. The Dolphin brand came first, followed by Focus, Ozone Swim and Hayward.

Although he’s boss, Adrian will muck in with his small team and do whatever needs to be done. He enjoys the customer interaction side of the job and would always rather be out talking to people than behind a desk.

Adrian has three adult boys (so he can handle most things), plus one very supportive wife. He has a penchant for fast things and has been known to brew his own beer.

For Adrian, no pool owner should be without: a robotic pool cleaner.
