Jacuzzi® relies on strategic partnerships with leading suppliers to drive supply chain improvements.

By Chris Petersen

As one of the most recognizable brand names in the world when it comes to hot tubs and bathtubs, the reputation of the Jacuzzi® brand depends on a smooth and efficient supply chain. And, as Vice President of Sourcing and Procurement Ritchie Taylor explains, that means the company places great emphasis on partnering with vendors and suppliers that can meet its needs and work with Jacuzzi to develop the strongest supply chain processes in the industry. Through a number of initiatives and strategies over the last decade or so, Jacuzzi and its partners have accomplished that, but the company continues to look for new ways to improve the speed and flexibility of its supply chain.

The Jacuzzi brand is a global leader in the manufacturing of hot tubs and bathtubs. The company pioneered the J-300 at-home hydromassage pump in the 1940s, utilizing a technology that was derived from an innovative water pump developed by the company’s founders in 1920.
