KBE, based in Wilhelmshaven, Germany, has built over 800 moveable floors all over the world. In 1975, Bill Thomas, then the executive of the Olean, N.Y., YMCA brought the first moveable pool floor to the United States, and shortly thereafter spearheaded the launch of the company's North American franchise.

KBE of North America will be exhibiting at the Athletic Business Conference & Expo in New Orleans on Nov. 28 and 29 and invites delegates to stop by booth #120 to say good bye; NC Aquatics, located in booth #122, invites delegates to stop and say hello to the new moveable swimming floor and floating bulkhead company.
