For many people, the word “Jacuzzi” has become all but synonymous with “hot tubs.” However, despite being a seemingly interchangeable term, many people are surprised to know that the parent company for Jacuzzi also owns the Sundance® Spas brand.
While Jacuzzi Brands has been around since 1965, Sundance® Spas is significantly younger and was founded in 1979. Despite being a younger company, though, Sundance® Spas have quickly grown in popularity.
The Birth of a Brand
Surprisingly, the founders for Sundance® Spas actually started their humble beginnings with no intention of even dabbling in spa manufacturing. Instead, they began in Costa Mesa, California, as an opportunity to work with plastics and sell them to the automotive industry.
This family business — owned by a father by the name of Jim Clark and his two sons, Chuck and Ron — quickly discovered the potential in growing a hot tub business.
It didn’t take long for Sundance® Spas to earn the reputation of being a trusted brand, and over the next two decades, they formed a loyal following of people who appreciated their commitment to crafting high-quality hot tubs and spas.
They quickly became an international brand, and in 1998, Jacuzzi acquired them, bringing them into the Jacuzzi Group Worldwide family.
A Sound Decision
Joining the Jacuzzi Group was an intelligent decision, as the brand has always held the same impressive values that the Clark family originally espoused. Jacuzzi Brands was already established as a manufacturer of many household spa brands, creating a variety of products that appeal to the distinguishing consumer.
Their lineup includes not only swim spas and whirlpool spas, but also walk-in bathtubs and household accessories. As they were the primary manufacturer of the best hot tubs on the market, the relationship between Sundance® Spas and Jacuzzi was a logical collaboration.
Who is Investindustrial?
In January of 2019, Investindustrial VI L.P., an investment group, made the move to acquire Jacuzzi Brands. This acquisition has allowed them to become the parent company for Jacuzzi Brands and, of course, Sundance® Spas.
This relationship will help to allow Jacuzzi and Sundance® Spas to continue to create well-made products for consumers, as Investindustrial already has significant experience in working with other luxury brands (such as Louis Poulsen, B&B Italia, and Flos).
