Polin - Polin announces new group structure

Recognised for its continuous innovation and its role as game changer, Polin now has the ability to grow even faster as it is formally reorganised under Polin Group


A major milestone for the Polin brand was recently reached with the establishment of Polin Holding under the brand name Polin Group. All of the companies and brands incorporated within Polin Group will to be housed under one of four main umbrellas: amusement attractions, composites manufacturing, park development and Funtastic parks.

Founded in 1976, Polin Waterparks has become a world leader in the design, production, engineering and installation of waterparks and waterplay structures while differentiating itself from competitors with its innovative solutions and sustained focus on research and development (R&D).

“This change recognises the new role that our company plays in the global amusement industry today,” says Dr Baris Pakis, president of Polin Holding. “Our company is recognised as a leader in the worldwide market. Many know us as the ‘game changer’ due to our innovation and success in completing 3,000 waterpark projects in 105 countries. We are confident that our company can become even more successful in the future.”

The company’s knowledgeable and creative team of engineers and designers have helped Polin to gain invaluable experience worldwide. Each team member shares their intelligence and successes with all other service units within the company, each now organised within its own structure and working toward the overall vision: to be “always innovative”, to deliver “worldwide superior quality” and to maintain the level of “technology leadership” for each individual brand.

The birth of Polin Holdings
The internationally successful brands that Polin Waterparks created within its own organisation led to the firm’s decision to reshape its organisational structure and develop into a holding company.

With this renewed organisational plan, Polin Group aims to increase profitability, efficiency and the scope of the group by offering more integrated solutions. Ultimately, the new organisation will allow the business to meet the varying expectations for best-of-class products and services in the amusement parks industry The framework of the Polin Group will be:

• Amusement attractions, which includes Polin waterparks, attractions, game technologies, aquariums, safari parks and theming

• Composites manufacturing, which includes composites and the Fipol and Futuraform companies

• Park development, which includes the design studio, park services, project development and investment planning and management

• Funtastic parks, which includes Funtastic aquariums, Funtastic waterparks and Funtastic amusement parks

New management and structure
At the top management level of Polin Holding, Baris Pakis has been named president, and Basar Pakis takes the reins as group CEO. Four units will be 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 organisational changes. Dr Kubilay Alpdogan has been appointed general manager of Polin Waterparks. Prior to this, Alpdogan was director of sales and design for five years and manager of sales and design for five years. Over these 10 years, Alpdogan has been managing the domestic and global sales teams, architectural and conceptual design teams. Before joining Polin, Alpdogan gained his career experience working with Arçelik-LG Electronics and EGS Bank and has and MSc in Engineering Management and PhD in Industrial Engineering.

Meanwhile, Bilge Pakis has been appointed to the position of sales and design director, having served as design manager of Polin Waterparks for 13 years. 

Polin Group business development director Eyup Ispiroglu will be responsible for creating new products and services for the group companies. Marketing and corporate communications director Sohret Pakis will oversee marketing and communication activities of the Polin Group. Strategy and human resources director Muge Tolunay Gundogdu will handle all processes related to human resources. And financial affairs director Erdal Bulut will manage all finances.

Basar Pakis, CEO of Polin Group, says the new structure allows clients to receive all needed solutions under one umbrella with many value-added services.
