Our story

Our History

Established in the 1970s by founder Bruce Harding, now run by his son Jack, Guncast has perfected the art of luxury swimming pool, spa and wellness creation. With an unrivalled reputation for superior design and build, Guncast is a family-run business that adheres to the most rigorous quality standards.


In the 1970s when founder Bruce Harding was just getting started with Guncast, curvy and geometric concrete pools with a marbelite finish and mosaic band and edge markers were all the rage. Though fully tiled mosaic pools were rare initially, in the luxury sectors requests still did come through and Guncast sought out the best finishers for the job.


Before spas became commonplace in the UK, Guncast took some of the earliest orders for ‘a corner of the pool that is hot and bubbly’ following the request of clients who had travelled abroad to destinations like the US and Australia. Luckily, following some crude but functional attempts at early spas, equipment started to be imported from the US. Guncast builds the killer whale tank (attached to the existing dolphinarium) along with a number of other animal pools for the Windsor Safari Park. Guncast Builds two 25 metre pool in Libya for the actors of Lion of the Desert – a film by Gadaffi.


Automatic pool covers start to gain popularity in top-end pool construction – resulting in more demand for rectangular designs to accommodate. Guncast spends much of this decade operating in the commercial market as private tennis and sports clubs gain popularity. During the 90s, Guncast builds multiple 25m pools for private health clubs, schools and hotels.


Following Bruce Harding’s retirement, his son Jack Harding takes the reins. During this decade, Guncast starts to concentrate and specialise in the high end of the domestic and commercial swimming pool market – excelling in moving floor pools, wellness suites, vitality pools and other luxury installations. By the end of the 00s, Guncast is internationally recognised at the go-to company for ultra-high-end swimming pool, spa and wellness projects.


Guncast continued to grow through these years to become one of the largest, most sought after swimming pool brands based in Britain, along side operations in Europe, North America and beyond. Guncast became one of the most well known luxury global swimming pool marques. Under the watchful eye of Jack Harding, chairman of the Guncast Group, Guncast’s success during these years is credit to their unique ability to deliver and improve on the highest standards of swimming pool design and construction, whilst simultaneously leading the way in the industry - crafting stunning, designer pools and spas that others would have considered impossible. 2016 Guncast became an official partner of KLAFS, the worlds leading sauna manufacturer.


Guncast evolved further in 2021 when KLAFS, the world-leaders in the design and installation of sauna and spa facilities, announced its acquisition of Guncast. Following on from Guncast being chosen as a supplier of KLAFS products to the UK market, the marriage of the two leading wellness companies enabled them to offer UK clients the comprehensive spa package under one roof. On January 18 2024, Global kitchen and bath leader Kohler completed its acquisition of KLAFS. Kohler Co. is one of America’s oldest and largest privately held companies with a shared passion for innovation, design, and a relentless pursuit of providing exceptional wellness products, services, and experiences. Guncast is excited about the future as part of this group of exceptional businesses that compliment and support each other in being market leaders dedicated to client satisfaction.
