The recession of 2008 wasn’t especially kind to spa manufacturers. As the number of spas sold dropped dramatically, smaller spa and hot tub brands were forced out of business.
Given that the industry has had a shake-up in the last 5 years, the time is ripe for an updated Spa and Hot Tub Manufacturers List, with current information.
We lost several good spa brands – Emerald, Great Lakes and Hawkeye Spas to name a few. Other companies under financial duress were gobbled up by larger players in the industry. The list below is 51 of the survivors, a tough as nails bunch of spa and hot tub brands that are beginning to thrive once again.
So then, in alphabetical order, I give you the current roster for the upcoming spa season! Use this list of Spa Manufacturers, or Hot Tub Brands in North America to find the contact information for your spa, or to read a little bit about the company.
