Our History

Our HistoryWideman Construction Company was founded in 1939 by Clay Wideman and has been a family business for over 70 years. The company started out in residential construction and installed its first pool which was concrete in the 1950’s. In 1980 a banker asked Clay and Dennis Wideman to install a fiberglass pool at his house. The following year they installed a few more pools and by the mid 80’s Wideman Pools was installing as many as 50 fiberglass pools per year!  Wideman Pools is still a locally owned, family business, and continues to provide unsurpassed service with quality products.

We can speak from over 40 years of proven experience in the fiberglass pool industry that the very best products are still made right here in the USA.​ ​

This picture is of the very first pool Wideman Pools installed in 1980 which has been in use for over 40 years.   (The picture was taken in July 2010). ​ Everything from our pool lights and PVC fittings to the pool shell itself is manufactured here in our country by American companies.  So, you can feel good that an investment in your home is helping to keep America going. ​
