Waterpark company Polin has released details of a major company restructure that will see the company consolidate all of its companies and brands into one of four different divisions - Amusement Attractions, Composites Manufacturing, Park Development and Funtastic Parks - under one brand name, Polin Group.

Amusement Attractions encompasses Polin Waterparks, Attractions, Game Technologies, Polin Aquariums, Safari Parks and Theming. Composites Manufacturing incorporates the Composites, Fipol and Futuraform companies. Park Development includes Design Studio, Park Services, Project Development, and Invest Planning and Management, and Funtastic Parks comprises of Funtastic Aquariums, Funtastic Waterparks and Funtastic Amusement Parks. "This change recognises the new role that our company plays in the global amusement industry today," said Basar Pakis, CEO of Polin Group.

"Our company is a worldwide and recognised leader in the market. Many know us as the 'game changer' due to our innovation and success in completing 3000 waterpark projects in 105 countries. We expect that our company can become even more successful in the future", he continued. As part of the restructure Polin has announced some staffing changes, including the appointment of Dr Kubilay Alpdogan as general manager of Polin Waterparks.
