Jacksonville's manufacturing scene is a Florida anomaly. Jacksonville is home to several manufacturers making products that one may not expect to find in the area. Here's a few.
5.Vak Pak, Inc.
Phoenix Avenue's Vak Pak Inc. is a designer and manufacturer of self-contained filtration and operating systems for swimming pools, spas, fountains and zoos. Several of its buildings date back to 1930 and were once a part of the Berea Baptist Church campus.
Vak Pak is a designing and manufacturing company for self-contained filtration systems, operating systems, and collector tanks for swimming pools, waterfalls, spas, zoos, and other water fixtures.
Vak Pak began in 1970 when it was founded by Paul Sutherland. Sutherland had worked many years in the pool industry, when he began to notice that there was a significant need for easier, more cost-efficient alternatives to the large “pump rooms” that often accompanied commercial and residential pools. For over 40 years since then, Vak Pak has continued to deliver superior water filtration systems to the community.
Vak Pak prides itself on making systems that are easy to maintain and install. They offer warranties with all of their products. These products include filter and recirculation systems, collectors and filters, tanks, splash pads, and various drain accessories.
Vak Pak can be found at 1824 Phoenix Ave.
