Geremia Pools has elevated its business with the launch of GEOSMART TECHNOLOGY™ system, a home performance system that can help you save up to 70% on your home heating and air conditioning. This is a hybrid ground-and-pool energy source system. The swimming pool is included as part of the energy transfer system. This significantly lowers the cost of installation since many people already have the pool or plan on putting one in. It is a natural extension of Geremia’s pool and construction expertise.
A company built on values
When Frank Geremia Sr. immigrated to California in 1915, he did so with a vision of building a company of unsurpassed quality. By 1922, he formed Angelo and Frank, a business partnership in cement contracting. You can still see the Angelo & Frank stamp on concrete curbs in downtown
Sacramento. In 1949 when Angelo retired, the company became known as F. Geremia & Sons. In 1970 , the building of the Chinatown Gate that overlooks the Chinatown Mall in downtown Sacramento was one of their most profiled construction jobs. This construction business provided the foundation that flourishes today in the hands of third and fourth generation Geremia pool builders. With family roots in Venice, Italy, you might say the Geremia family has "water in their veins."
The early years
The business diversified into swimming pools in 1937 and eventually became the most prominent pool builder in the Sacramento Valley. The first pool was an above-ground combined water-reservoir and swimming pool on Spanish Ranch in Pleasant Grove.
The transition to the next generation started when Frank passed the torch to his eldest son Gene. Shortly thereafter Gene's brother Robert (Bob) joined what was then called F. Geremia & Sons. Then in 1949 Anthony (Tony), another brother, joined upon graduating from the University of the Pacific -finished on a Friday and started that Monday. It was a small company at the time with only six to eight people working hard to develop the business. Ten years later, Frank Jr. graduated from Notre Dame turning away a football career to join the company, which had then diversified into a concrete, engineering and swimming pool construction company. Frank was shoveling sand into the gunite machine within a week of graduation.
F. Geremia & Sons grew by building such landmark projects in the Sacramento area as the Chinatown Mall that links Down Town Plaza to Old Sacramento. They also built the South Land Park Pumping Plant, the canals that meander throughout the central part of Cal Expo, the fountain at Cal Expo, and the multi-level concrete steps that lead to the exposition buildings. The company built the sewer and drain system for Orangevale and parts of Citrus Heights. They worked with other contractors too, doing all of the concrete work in the construction of St. Mary’s Church in East Sacramento.
Over the years the commitment to “Quality without Compromise” along with good customer service and superb construction techniques became the company hallmark. With society becoming more affluent, the back yard swimming pool became a reality for more and more families. By the early 1960’s, the sons developed Geremia Pools, Inc. into the foremost pool company in the Sacramento Valley.
When commercial swimming pools became a popular feature in schools, sports clubs, apartments, and hotels, Geremia Pools, Inc. became the builder of choice. Early commercial projects included the swimming pool at California State University, Sacramento, most of the local high school swimming pools and the Clunie Pool at McKinley Park in East Sacramento. Today they continue to be the contractor’s choice, building commercial pools for major hotel chains, schools, and sports clubs.
In 1962, Geremia Pools, Inc. was a founding member of the Master Pools Guild—a group of top swimming pool builders across the United States that shared professional business and technical ideas in order to better meet the challenges of the growing swimming pool market place.
Third and fourth generation
Each generation has learned the business from the bottom up, working with the crews during school summer vacations. It has been no different for the third and fourth generations. They joined to fully embrace the family business that has been such a part of their lives. No longer a small company, each family member who has joined the company has specialized in a different area of expertise—from construction, service, sales, administration, and management—all committed to the ultimate goal of building a quality swimming pool and providing excellent customer service.
Today, Mike Geremia is president of Geremia Pools Inc. He oversees the swimming pool design team and the office staff that is made up of some family members along with committed long-term employees. Robbie Geremia runs the construction end of the business managing all of the in-house construction crews and dedicated area supervisors.
