Our Story & History
Kiefer Swim was started by American Adolph Kiefer in 1947. By that time Adolph Kiefer had won the gold medal in the 100M Backstroke at the 1936 Olympics, broken 14 world swimming records, and taught thousands of Navy seamen how to swim during World War II.
Adolph Kiefer invented many of the products and swim categories still in use today - including pioneering developments in competitive racing lanes, starting blocks, swimwear, lifeguard safety, and aquatic therapy solutions.
After 70 years of innovation, we are humbled by our history and proud of our ongoing commitment to Swim with Confidence in the aquatics industry.
