Ian Coombes Limited (ICL) and Coombes Aquatics Limited.


Ian Coombes Limited has been successfully operating in the specialist aquatics field for 40 years. Earlier in the year, Ian and Sue Coombes formally handed over the reins of this successful company to their eldest son, Ben Coombes, who has been ICL’s General Manager for the last 7 years. Sue and Ian’s younger son Tim is also a specialist member of the ICL technical team.

The family are pleased to announce the launch of Coombes Aquatics Limited on the 2nd of November 2020.

Keeping the Coombes name was critical in the rebranding process and demonstrates the core family values that Ian and Sue Coombes founded, instilled and continued to grow with the assistance of their two sons.

Coombes Aquatics encompasses how this small Christchurch engineering business began servicing local swimming pools, and today designs, builds, and refurbishes large commercial and school water spaces, splash pads, hydroslides and wellness facilities. We develop a client’s vision and take that through to completion and handover throughout New Zealand.

Ian and Sue are still actively part of this amazing aquatics company, but are happy to have more time pursuing their hobbies, conquering their next swim challenge and spending valuable time introducing the third generation of Coombes children to the wonders of water sports.

For all our existing and new clients, our contact details and workplaces are the same. Please click the below link to take you to the new Coombes Aquatics Limited website.
For all our trade clients and valued suppliers, our team will be in contact with our new company and bank details very soon.

If you have any further queries, please contact us at any of the Coombes Aquatics Limited offices located in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

Thank you for you continued support and we wish you a happy summer swim season.
