The Polin brand has taken a new step, as the process required to finalise the establishment of Polin Holding under the brand name Polin Group will continue to be housed under one of four main umbrellas: Amusement Attractions, Composites Manufacturing, Park Development and Funtastic Parks.
Founded in 1976, Polin Waterparks has served as a world leader in the design, production, engineering and installation of waterparks and water play structures.
“This change recognizes the new role that our company plays in the global amusement industry today,”says Dr. Baris Pakis, president of the Polin Holding. “Our company is a worldwide and recognized leader in the market. Many know us as the ‘game changer’ due to our innovation and success in completing 3,000 waterpark projects in 105 countries. We expect that our company can become even more successful in the future.”
The international brands that Polin Waterparks created within its own organization is what led to the firm reshaping its organizational structure and developing into a holding company. With this renewed organizational plan, Polin Group aims to increase profitability, efficiency and the scope of the group by offering more integrated solutions. Ultimately, the new organization will allow the business to meet the varying expectations for best-of-class products and services in the amusement parks industry.
Within the framework of the new organizational structure of Polin Group will be:
- Amusement Attractions, which includes Polin Waterparks, Attractions, Game Technologies, Polin Aquariums, Safari Parks and Theming
- Composites Manufacturing, which includes Composites, Fipol and Futuraform Companies
- Park Development, which includes Design Studio, Park Services, Project Development, and Investment Planning and Management
- Funtastic Parks, which includes Funtastic Aquariums, Funtastic Waterparks and Funtastic Amusement Parks.
At the top management level of Polin Holding, Dr. Baris Pakis has been named President, and Basar Pakis is Group CEO.
Four units will deliver support services to Polin Holdings: Business Development Directorate, Marketing and Corporate Communications Directorate, Strategy and Human Resources Directorate and Financial Affairs Directorate.
Within this context, there have been some organizational changes. Dr. Kubilay Alpdogan has been appointed to General Manager of Polin Waterparks. Also Bilge Pakis has been appointed to the position of Sales and Design Director after having served as Design Manager of Polin Waterparks for 13 years.
