Jacuzzi (Italian pronunciation: [jaˈkuttsi]) is an Italian multinational corporation that produces whirlpool bathtubs and hot tub spas. Its first product was a bath with massaging jets.

In October 2006, Apollo Management, a large private equity firm, announced a $990 million leveraged buyout of Jacuzzi Brands.[2]

In 2008 Jacuzzi moved its world headquarters to The Shoppes at Chino Hills, California.[citation needed]

In May 2012, Jacuzzi Group Worldwide acquired the assets of ThermoSpas, a Wallingford Connecticut-based manufacturer of spas and hot tubs.[3]
