One Family’s Legacy of Innovation
The Jacuzzi family emigrated to the United States in the early 1900s and quickly earned a reputation as highly-skilled engineers. The seven Jacuzzi brothers were the first to build an enclosed-cabin monoplane, and were responsible for creating a submersible pump which changed the face of agriculture.
But it was the 1950s when things really started to happen. After a young family member was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, the brothers developed an aeration pump which could be submerged in water, and hydrotherapy was born!
Third-generation family member Roy Jacuzzi took the business to the next level in the 1960s, creating the patented jets that would make Jacuzzi® a household name.
To this day, the business remains at the forefront of innovation, constantly searching for new ways to make people’s lives better through hydrotherapy. Jacuzzi® now has more than 250 global patents, and is the world’s largest manufacturer of acrylic spas.
