When talking to many people about Diamond Spas, the question is always asked……………… “How did you get started?”
The idea for Diamond Spas began when I was a child. My Grandparents were farmers in Colorado. When I would visit, I thoroughly enjoyed my Grandfathers reclining chair. A quick pull on the side lever, back reclines and feet go up. I always wondered why no one made a bathtub designed with a bottom that conformed so nicely to the body. The perfect posture for ultimate relaxation. After college I moved to a small town in the Rocky Mountains. This is where I met Tom and the Diamond Spas story begins.
One afternoon I casually mentioned that I was on a personal mission to find a comfortable bathtub. After further discussion, Tom made the statement, “You design it and I’ll build it.” I didn’t have to think long about what I thought would be the perfect bath design. A couple of weeks later, we were in his shop assembling a stainless-steel bath. We worked together bending and tacking until the perfect form was achieved. I loved my bath and thought it was only fitting that every seasoned bather should have access to such a design.
In March of 1996, Tom and I started Diamond Spas 50/50. It took about 2 ½ years for the concept of a stainless-steel body conforming bath to gain attention. When it did, it took off. We expanded the product line with swimming pools and spas in 1999. We added copper to our production in 2000. I attribute Diamond Spas success to hard work, the rock-solid mentality to never give up, the incredible people we have working here with us every day and lastly, our clients who see the unlimited possibilities available when working with Diamond Spas. Their imaginative designs and luxurious installations are nothing short of visionary.
A couple years after the start of Diamond Spas, Tom and I got married in that sleepy little mountain town where we first met. Life has blessed us well beyond our expectations. We are truly grateful. We wish you all much happiness and success in your own lives.
