After much industry speculation, Jacuzzi Group Worldwide on Wednesday announced the acquisition of Dimension One Spas.
This is the second acquisition of another hot tub company by the Chino Hills, Calif.-based firm in less than eight months. In June 2012, Jacuzzi brought ThermoSpas Hot Tub Products into its fold.
“We are very pleased to welcome Dimension One employees, dealers, suppliers and spa owners to the Jacuzzi Group family,” said Bob Rowan, president of Jacuzzi North America. “I am also excited about the exceptional talent within the Dimension One team and anticipate a strong future.”
Dimension One President Bob Hallam believes the transaction will lead to greater growth for the brand of hot tubs and swim spas he founded in 1977.
“I am excited about the opportunities the Jacuzzi Group ownership means for the entire Dimension One family,” he said.
As part of the deal, the business now will be called New Dimension One Spas and will continue to operate as a separate unit from Jacuzzi with most existing operation remaining at the current site in Vista, Calif.
Founded in 1925, Jacuzzi began as a pump manufacturer and today produces hot tubs, bathtubs, walk-in bathtubs, showers and sinks.
